  1. I have cooked from Nitza's cookbook for years....any recipe comes out great!!!! Good luck! Ana (Tad is my husband- not the cook!)

  2. Can I use Basmati rice and who is Joe Flanigan?

  3. Hi Evie, try it with Basmati and let me know how it turns out. I've always used Jasmine rice. Joe Flanigan is the owner of a restaurant in South Florida, Flanigan's. It is 3 cups of water that you need.

  4. Where's the measurements? Steps?
