Crock Pot Chicken & Brown Rice

Coning home from a road trip with a bad case of the GIs, and having not eaten anything in nearly 24 hours, I was finally in the mood for some real comfort food but did not want to spend any energy I didn’t have in a complicated, multi-step preparation.  What could be more comforting on

CInco de Mayo Pork Chops over Cilantro Rice

  Here’s a simple way to make tough thick-cut pork chops fork-tender with a Mexican flavor profile.  I needed to find a recipe for a couple of disappointing pork chops that I knew needed a long braising time.  It just happened to be Cinco de Mayo, and I put together this recipe based on several

Kitchen Tapestry: Red Beans & Rice

  Fat Tuesday is the final day of decadence and lack of restraint before buckling down and doing some serious atonement for your sins during Lent. It is the culmination of the season known as Mardi Gras.  Tomorrow, you’ll perhaps have ashes applied to your forehead and spend the next six weeks denying yourself of

Year of the Tiger Forbidden Fried Rice

Yesterday marked the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice, and hence, the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year of 4720, the Year of the Tiger.  According to Chinese astrology, children born in the Year of the Tiger will be imbued with character traits of bravery, competitiveness, unpredictability, and confidence. They are very charming

Creamy-Crispy Hamburger Rice Casserole

Anxious for some genuine, home-cooked comfort food after a grueling two weeks relocating our household from one state to another, and totally sick of DoorDash, I went about my new kitchen to create a dinner rice casserole.  Few things are as comforting to me as hamburger, cheese and white rice, and borrowing a few recipe

Brown Rice Casserole

If you conduct an Internet search for brown rice casserole, what you’re generally going to find are a lot of casserole recipes that have brown rice in them, but are not casseroles dedicated strictly to the titular ingredient, many of which contain chicken, broccoli and cheese – not that there’s anything wrong with that.  In

Cauliflower Rice


This lovely dish is a delicious and healthy, low-carb alternative to real rice.  When eaten with curries, chilli-con-carne and other highly tasty dishes, it is surprising just how well it works as a rice substitute.  With only 10g per (two-cup) serving and being so easy and quick to make, it has become a regular staple in our house.

Rice Pilaf

Rice Pilaf is called by maybe twenty other names in other countries and is as varied in its ingredients as the imagination will allow.  It has a lengthy history and is thought to have spread over a vast region of Asia and the Middle East in the 700s.  The Armies of Alexander the Great are

Potluck Chicken & Rice Casserole

This dish reminds me of those potluck suppers I used to have to go to as a kid.  There would invariably be a good twenty-percent of the total available casseroles dedicated to just chicken and rice, along with chicken-noodle, tuna-noodle, lasagna and green bean casserole.  The great thing about this dish is that there can

A Mexican Supper

Hungry for Mexican food, but trying to watch the calories, I decided to make an oven-fried chimichanga recipe that my Number One Fan and had previously prepared one evening.  This recipe came from the Easy Recipe website and was a re-post of the original found on the the Creme de la Crumb website.  Since we
