Horchata!

In my Spanish class, we got to finally cook something; a Mexican drink. It tastes just like the milk leftover after you eat a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

*Place the rice in a bowl with enough hot water to cover. Let the rice sit overnight. The next day, remove the water. Place cup of rice, water, and 3 1/2 cups milk and water in a blender. Blend until rice is all ground up. Mix in 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Blend and strain through a strainer. Serve over ice.

Great Cooking Book!

I was so lucky to have stumbled upon this great cookbook at my local library. Here it is! (Courtsey of google images)

The book is called Grilled Cheese, Please! written by Laura Werlin. The book has lots of great recipes, which you can find in the lunch tab on the right. This book gives plain old grilled cheese a whole new makeover.
