Oven-baked Rice

Tell me if you can relate to this —

You found a new recipe online, something that seemed easy enough to make and delicious enough to serve. Or maybe you wanted to replicate a dish you’ve had many times already.

But when you tried to make it yourself, it was a disaster.

That’s happened to me plenty of times my friend. One of my worst moments was the first time I had to make rice for family dinner.

I come from a super traditional family where the women are expected to learn how to cook (ya, don’t get me started). I often stood by the stove, watching and learning from my mom as she prepared every dish.

So when the day came for me to make the rice…well let’s just say you didn’t really need to chew it.

If you’ve ever had a similar rice cooking disaster – whether it was too mushy (like mine), too hard, or burnt on the bottom – this GiftyTV is for you.

You’ll learn the secret to making perfect rice every time. And you don’t even have to use a rice cooker

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d like to hear about your own cooking mishaps. What dish or recipe have you had the most trouble with?

Lots of love,

  2. You are a good cook and articulate instructor. I first learned this technique in Paul Prudhomme’s first cookbook, “Louisiana Kitchen” cookbook

  3. I am falling in love all over again for your video. Am gonna try this. Thanks. I could imagine that garlicky steam when you poured the rice into the bowl. Hmmm…yummy…
