Cooking Tips and Tricks

Perfect Rice

Rice is an excellent side dish that goes well with almost every vegetable. It includes 80% of complex carbohydrates, the minimum amount of salt, and has zero gluten. Wild rice is considered more beneficial to health. After thermal processing, unpolished rice grains retain their shape completely, and the side dish looks crumbly. Unfortunately, wild rice can be pretty expensive. But you will be able to cook delicious dish even from inexpensive rice varieties.


  • 1 cup rice (225 g)
  • 1 ⅔ cup water (400 ml)
  • 3 tbsp butter (40 g)
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Pour the rice with water in a deep bowl, mix with your hands, drain the starchy water. It is important to rinse the rice thoroughly! Repeat until the water is clear.
  2. Pour the washed rice with cold water, cover the bowl with a paper towel and leave for at least 2 hours. You can soak the rice the night before or in the morning, so that you can quickly cook it by the evening.
  3. Drain the water from the rice and rinse it thoroughly. Put the rice in a pot (ideally a cast iron skillet). Pour the rice in a saucepan with 1 ⅔ cup water.
  4. Bring rice to a boil and cook over high heat for 3 minutes. At the same time add salt and butter. Cover the pan, turn off the heat and set aside for 30 minutes.

Your perfectly cooked, non-sticky rice is done! Just a few simple manipulations and 3 minutes of active cooking, and you get a really tasty and healthy side dish. It can also serve as a base for soup and also be a great filling for pies and casseroles.

Here’s another tip for cooking delicious rice. If you add one or two teaspoons of vinegar, the dish will turn out snow-white and crumbly. If you have long forgotten rice lying around in the kitchen, try to cook it this way.

Soft Meat

To make the meat very soft and cooked through, you need to rub it with baking soda and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Then wash it well from soda and cook as usual. It turns out so tender!

Frying Fish

The fish will not fall apart during frying if you salt it 15 minutes before cooking.

Delicious Veggies

The most delicious way to cook cauliflower is to stew it in milk. Even the pickiest eaters will love its taste!

If you add half a glass of apple juice to the water when boiling peeled carrots, you get an incredibly fragrant, piquant side dish!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing
between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I
had to ask!

Ik weet niet of het aan mij ligt of dat alle anderen problemen hebben met je blog. Het lijkt alsof een deel van de tekst in uw inhoud van het scherm loopt. Kan iemand anders alsjeblieft reageren en me laten weten of dit ook bij hen gebeurt? Dit kan een probleem zijn met mijn internetbrowser omdat ik dit eerder heb meegemaakt. Dank je
