It's totally a tease to share a fresh fig recipe in April. I know. But I'd never had a fresh fig until I got some in my Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm share box. Whoa-that is some good eating!
When we moved to Ohio I thought I'd never have that fresh fig experience--after all, by the time fresh figs hit the store they are usually about to mold.
Then I took the dog on a walk through an alley a few blocks away . . . and lo and behold there was a tree with leaves…Continue

I use only brown rice and the other night I needed some rice and had to cook it for 45-50 minutes. Made a much later meal than desired. So my brain thinks, you can buy instant brown rice so why can't you make it. So I came up with this idea to make it. (And maybe it's an old idea and you all know how to do this, but I had never seen it so it was new to me.)
1 cup of rice
2 cups water
Cooked until it was done. Rinsed well and put it on my dehydrator…
