Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut Rice Pudding

I haven’t posted a rice pudding recipe since 2011? Wow. Craziness. And geez…let me reflect for a second. Who else agrees that I started out as a horrible photographer?  And the writing?! Haha. I guess I’ve opened up over the years. Anyway after playing with coconut on Friday, I wanted to keep the...
Bombay Market: Naturally Aromatic Basmati Rice

Bombay Market: Naturally Aromatic Basmati Rice

I was introduced to the world of basmati rice by the same friend who introduced me to Indian cuisine. It changed my concept of what rice should be. The long grain puffs slightly when cooked, making it light and fluffy…and I mean fluffy. When it finishes cooking and you “fluff” it with...
Vegetable Fried Brown Rice

Vegetable Fried Brown Rice

You know when you have leftover vegetables hanging around the fridge – like half a pepper, a bit of onion, broccoli that might go bad? Well, I know this game all too well. Never toss these bits and pieces away! It’s so easy to combine all them into a great vegetable fried...
Chicken and Rice Soup

Chicken and Rice Soup

Soup is comforting. When we’re sick or feeling down, we often turn to a bowl of soup for nourishment. The steam and flavors relax us, and make everything seem more at ease. Making soup from scratch is 100% worth it. The flavors are more intense, veggies are still toothsome, and you can...
Black Beans and Rice

Black Beans and Rice

I like cooking with black beans…it’s neat to have a splash of black that contrast with the other colors on your plate. And the beans taste great, so I tend to use them a lot – I seriously make this black beans and rice dish weekly. It’s not entirely traditional, but it’s...
Citrus Cinnamon Basmati Rice

Citrus Cinnamon Basmati Rice

Rice rice rice! Let’s brighten these suckers up, eh? I love the little specks of yellow, orange, and green riddled throughout the long grain rice. The citrus makes it taste fresh and light, a touch of summer. However, I always like some flavor depth, so I toss in some warm and spicy...
Vegetarian Jambalaya

Vegetarian Jambalaya

Everywhere you look you can find a regular jambalaya recipe, but it’s a lot harder to satisfy our vegetarian southern food lovers! So I came up with a recipe that I think takes the cake. It’s packed full of veggies, spice, and other great rib stickin’ flavor. This jambalaya is even better...
Warm Rice Herb Salad with Snow Peas

Warm Rice Herb Salad with Snow Peas

Whole grains are perfect for a carb addict like me – I mean, who else would put croutons in their rice? The slow cooked garlic in this dish becomes buttery, and mixed with the fresh herbs it explodes with a complex flavor in each forkful (especially the savory sweetness of the mint)....
Parmesan Rice

Parmesan Rice

Plain rice gets boring after a while, so to keep things interesting I throw together a few simple ingredients with freshly cooked rice…like salty/nutty parmesan cheese! It’s super easy to make and only a few ingredients. Slightly goopey, slightly crunchy – it’s a great side dish when you need something quick! 1...
