Sticky Rice

While rice isn’t spectacular, it is the foundation for several of our favorite dinners, one that I will be sharing later this week. It might be shocking but rice has given me fits over the years. I mean, the directions are on the bag, how hard can it be? Well after lots of nights with dry or hard rice I knew needed a new recipe. But there were a few rules, it needed to be sticky and fast.
