During the hot summer months, we automatically add salads to our menu plans. A big bowl of crisp lettuce, cool cucumbers and sun-ripened tomatoes tossed lightly with an oil-and-vinegar dressing is always refreshing during the warmest time of the year. When salad-variety produce is at its peak, it's easy to get creative with fresh veggie side dishes that go beyond the simple tossed green salad. The best salads are simple, with just a few ingredients, like sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and slivered basil, or cucumbers, red onion and dill.
As fall gives way to winter, many of us lose access to quality warm-weather produce. Sure, we can still find red, "vine-ripened" tomatoes at the grocery in January, but they're likely to be firm and flavorless compared to those just-picked beauties we can get in August. The best summer salads simply don't translate to winter.
But just because the colder season is starting, that doesn't mean we have

You know what I love about these two recipes? They are as different as different can be, but both inspired by the same Shine Supper Club theme: pasta. That's one of the beauties of cooking, and what a blogging collective like the Supper Club can showcase: cooking is a springboard for creativity, and an opportunity for us to bring our ideas, personal preferences, and whatever we are hungry for at that moment to bear at every meal.

The first thing would be to rinse the rice using cold water. You can use a sieve or strainer, whatever is handy. Alternatively just fill a pot with water, put in the rice and move it around the pot with your hand until the water that is being drained after swishes clear.
If the rise is not washed properly, it becomes mushy. Sometimes people avoid washing the rice too much as this depletes the nutrients from the rice. Add water as per quantity of rice to be cooked and add a pinch of salt for flavor. Let the water boil then add the rice. Cover the pot with a lid and let it simmer for around 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the stove off but keep the riceRead More »from Best Way to Cook Rice Without a Rice Cooker
