Issue #64


after this long, hard and cold winter (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), the spring is such a relief to everyone.

Even though in my garden, plants are still behind the normal season, the strawberries already blossom and soon I'll be able to harvest my favorite fruits :-)

Meanwhile strawberry time has started and you can get them in most of the supermarkets.

We tried a new recipe that's a delight for everyone who loves rice pudding.

Strawberry Rice Dream

A delightful variation of the good old rice pudding.

  • 2 cups (500g) fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons low fat yogurt

Kitchen Tip for Cooking Rice

* Add a tablespoon of oil to the water when cooking rice so the grains stay separate and don't stick together.

* Never stir rice while it cooks because it will crush the rice grains and make the rice gummy (this is why you stir rice pudding)
