    I actually really like rice pasta & buy it preferentially to normal pasta. The key to cooking it is that the timing needs to be precise. Undercooked is chewy and overcooked is horrible mush. You...

    I use the human version of Cosequin - I can actually feel a difference when I'm running a lot in terms of how well my body holds up to the pavement pounding. I had a coupon so I'm not sure how it...
