Cilantro lime rice is simple one pot dish that is full of robust flavors. Sauteed onions, garlic and ginger adds an aromatic and savory touch to the rice. The rice is then lightly toasted in butter, cooked in chicken broth and infused with lime zest to add flavor and a refreshing twist. The rice is then fluffed with chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice to brighten up the dish. It’s a decadent way to dress up rice and wonderful served with sauteed shrimp.
It’s the perfect weather to cozy up with a warm and comforting bowl of tomato soup and a hot grilled cheese sandwich. This is exactly what I did last week for lunch. I headed to Panera Bread for a bowl of vegetarian creamy tomato soup and a “big kid grilled cheese”. I was inspired to make this comforting meal for Derrick this week. I’ve always wanted to make my own tomato soup. It’s a good feeling knowing exactly what you’re eating and that you made it with good fresh ingredients.
Fall is here and I am in the mood for taco soup. It just sounds so good to me: ground turkey, hearty beans, olives, corn and tomatoes in a warm spicy broth topped with cheese and a dollop of sour cream. The best part is this dish is so easy to make and wonderful for feeding crowds or for potlucks.
Tart Cherry Soup is a tart and slightly sweet soup that is served chilled and is very refreshing. It would be a great summer soup. With Valentine’s Day around the corner this pink hue soup would be a romantic starter.
Biscotti is an Italian twice baked cookie that is great as a morning treat with a cup of coffee or tea, but it’s also delicious on its own (anytime of the day). This cranberry pistachio biscotti recipe is easy to make and keeps well in an airtight container for about a week. The cranberries add a sweet tartness to the cookie while the pistachios give it a slightly salty bite.
