Laura has proven herself to be an excellent chef. Traditionally, I have done most of the cooking. I generally do not use recipes—other than my own. Laura has an excellent talent for finding recipes that appeal to her and producing great meals from them. She has an ability to make whatever alterations in the recipes she feels are warranted to better address our personal tastes.

Tonight, I shall produce my famous Spicy Panko-encrusted Chicken Livers with Calrose Rice.

The recipe is simple: Place one cup of Calrose rice and two cups of water in a casserole dish. Cover with a dampened paper towel and cook on high for five minutes in a microwave oven. Stir and continue to cook on high for another three minutes or until rice is fully cooked. Cover and set aside.

Wash chicken livers and set aside on paper towels. Add ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, Gebhardt's chili powder, and granulated garlic to one box of Panko and mix thoroughly. Place chicken livers in Panko mixture and coat well. Pour 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil in a large sauté pan and pre-heat to medium. Add chicken livers and cook until browned—turning once. When livers are fully cooked, add green onions, stir lightly, pour over rice, and take the dish to the table.

Use Sriracha hot chili sauce as a condiment. This is an absolutely delicious meal.

Laura made Habanero Ginger Jelly. This is absolutely delicious on buttered toast, crackers with cream cheese, or just about anything!
