"I can't believe these are healthy cookies," my friends say. That and, “I would make these. Send me the recipe, will you?”
So here I am today, back from a small blogging break, to share with you a fantastic recipe that a number of you have asked for.
I love mixing up a jar of this ahead so it's ready to use in my rice. It’s a simple but flavorful addition! Just throw it into the rice cooker (or pot if cooking on the stovetop) with the brown rice and water. The rice comes out with a delicious flavor and the house smells great too!
My husband loves this "rice spice," especially with a homemade version of refried black beans found in this cookbook.

I am happy to report I have completed over four weeks of eating vegetarian. Notice I say "happy," and I'm not joking. My taste buds are definitely adjusting, and my food cravings are completely different. They say that once you start eating very healthfully, you start craving healthy foods.
