My brown rice package says it takes 25 minutes to cook conventionally, but most brown rice is supposed to take 40-60 minutes. I'm cooking it in an instant pot. I'm concerned about overcooking it, and wonder if I should reduce the cook time. [more inside]
I'm trying to modify my diet to low carb/high protein, and for various boring reasons my protein sources are essentially chicken and eggs. I've been having the eggs in boiled and omelet forms, and chicken (boneless) usually marinated in lemon juice/garlic/pepper/oregano. I like these versions, but I can tell boredom is around the corner. Can you suggest nice non-oven cooking styles for chicken and/or eggs that are healthy and not too complicated? Thanks in advance!

A friend and I really like going out for workday lunch - I work at home in Lakeview so it's nice to be able to get the lunch specials at local places. We're always looking to try new places; what are some of your favorite lunch specials in the area? It's surprisingly hard to search places by lunch special. [more inside]
What tips and advice do you have for vegetarian hot pot? This is the place. Assume they have any and every vegetable, noodle, or sauce. What should I do to have the best most delicious experience? I’m a total amateur and don’t know what I’m doing.
We're getting into a routine of making weekend brunches that are fancier than our normal pancakes or waffles, but I'm also running out of ideas fast.

Unfortunately, the based to my slow cooker got immersed in water by someone trying to be helpful and clean it. I came home to it drying upside down on a towel, having obviously been immersed or cleaned with a lot of water. I could tell a small amount of water was inside the casing. This was about 2 months ago and I haven't touched it since. Will I kill myself or a family member if I try to use it??
I've had a habit of stocking my pantry with funky random ingredients on a whim - I'll be browsing in a little mom-and-pop Italian-foods store and pick up a weird flavored pasta, or I'l feel like I need to be stocked up with marzipan for some reason. And then I end up not using it because I can't think what to do with it. One of my resolutions is to finally eat some of the damn stuff - and in some cases I need suggestions for how. Ingredients giving me a hard time inside. [more inside]
