  1. Really looking forward to the coca cola rice! Sounds so interesting!

  2. Collette Lemons says:

    I am thinking I might try the rice since Cliff says he don’t hate rice – I could swear he told me once he didn’t like it.

    So this time I might have to give it a go. I like rice ok but I never seem to make it.

    You might have changed my cooking world this time. :)

  3. Sounds DElicious…cannot wait to see pics & read details…especially the poached eggs!
