{success in the kitchen}

Have you ever heard of Chef Brad and Fusion Grain Cooking??
I hope so!  If not . . . you totally need to . . . so I'll fill you in.
This is Chef Brad:

This is his great logo:

 This is one of his recipes I made today:
Brown Rice Barley Feta Dinner Rolls. . . regardless of what you are expecting - they are delicious.
Chef Brad was at Education Week and Monica got to attend his classes!
She is so wonderful. She is sharing her knowledge.  I wasn't able to stay for the evening classes and was so sad to miss out but I have Monica AND he has a website!

He also has a cooking show on BYU-TV =>  Fusion Grain Cooking

I have honestly been trying like crazy to cook healthy and I've got so much to learn.
I'm so happy I found a place to get educated!

I was a little worried about my rolls at first since the dough was super sticky.  I didn't want to add too much flour and decided to just hope for the best.  I think my hoping paid off.  They aren't super round, smooth, and beautiful due to the sticky dough but they are light, fluffy, and delicious.
My family and the missionaries have all approved.
I've also started using agave in place of sugar.  Brilliant idea since it is 25% sweeter than sugar so I use less and it is lower on the glycemic index. =)
{It doesn't need to be "blue" agave - that's just what was available at the store that day.}
I'm not sure if I can post the recipe.  I'll have to ask about that.  I don't think this is commercial use.
I'm not the type to be stealing and sharing.  BUT . . . I like sharing!  I'll have to ask.

My next desperate "want" is an electric pressure cooker.  Ooooo, I'll be dreaming about that tonight.
Perhaps this is getting obsessive!
