Fried rice is fantastic and it’s an excellent way to clean up your crisper and use up little bits of protein and vegetables. But, if you just slap it together willy-nilly, it can be mushy and flavorless. Over the years, I’ve mastered the art of creating restaurant-style fried rice from leftovers. Here are my […]
My husband, Mr. Meaty, makes a mean Bacon Carbonara. It’s one of the first things he made me for dinner when we were dating. And it is delicious. Bacon has always been my meat weakness. And now that I’m a chicken-and-baconatarian, I am enjoying the flexibility of bacon. Since I’m unfortunately gluten-free as well, we […]
The dessert that captures our hearts is called Pulut Hitam, a Malaysian sticky black rice pudding with coconut milk. And black rice has so many nutritional benefits.
Indian-spiced Basmati rice breakfast cereal filled with creamy coconut milk and subtle Indian spices. The kids and I love it, and maybe I’ve found a rice pudding recipe Mr. Meaty will love!
Day 361. Gasp! 361? Only 4 days to go in this year; unbelievable. I’m planning to follow along with Kelly’s Get Real series in 2012 to help our family make the transition to even more whole foods in our diet, so stay tuned for that in 2012. We’re already using a lot of whole foods, […]
Day 348. It’s another birthday today, my husband’s this time and as his dinner, he gets this incredibly non-photogenic, but creamy delicious risotto. I adapted it from a delicious recipe for Corn Risotto in Stephanie O’Dea’s Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook. The corn version sounds super tasty, but our kids are broccoli […]
Day 309. When I was in college, I went to my first vegetarian restaurant. (I was a vegetarian long before that, but grew up in a town where the veggie section at Asian restaurants was about as close as I could get.) That vegetarian restaurant/juice bar was called The Main Squeeze, and the very first […]
Day 296. Our kids are weird. They beg for vegetables and beans. Some of their favorite meals include black beans, tomatoes, corn and rice in various combinations. They’ve also been known try cry when all the broccoli is gone. I’m not complaining. It’s awesome; just funny. Needless to say, when I saw this cold Southwestern […]
Day 294. My version of arroz con pollo would more accurately be called “Arroz con Garbanzo,” but it’s converted from the original so I’m sticking with that. I’ve always been a little wary of dishes that cook the rice in the pan or in the CrockPot or whatever cooking utensils you’re using. I can make […]
Vegan jambalaya is here…and welcome WiseBread readers! If you’re new here, please stay a while and read a bit about me and the blog, or check me out on Facebook and Pinterest! Day 282. Jambalaya always smells really tasty. And, other than the meat, it seems like something I would love. Rice and vegetables stewing in a pot? […]
