During this time of isolation I’ve been working on a house to flip. I have an Interior Design background and since it’s not my nature to just sit at home, I bought a house to keep me busy. And busy it’s been. We closed April 30th and I have about a week still of work until it’s done completely. That being said, some nights when I get home I really don’t want to cook. Solution, order out… anyway, we ordered from our local Chinese Restaurant and as per normal there was a lot of leftover white rice. So for lunch the next day I made this… It was delicious!

I’m a big fan of Indian cuisine…and I recently bought a few different types of all natural little packages of Indian food at the supermarket just to give them a try. To accompany the entree I created an Indian-spiced rice to compliment it and bulk it up for a quick lunch for my husband and I…the Indian Jaipur Vegetables entree was very good! And served on top of this tasty rice it was even better…. Continue reading

Honey Dijon Rice
On today’s menu is a quick and tasty rice. I love to experiment with different flavor combinations. So when I made some pork chops seasoned with honey and dijon, I decided to carry those flavors over in the rice dish that accompanied the meal. Sweet and salty at the same time. Yummy! I’ll share the Honey Dijon Pork Chops on Friday… Continue reading

Coconut Curry Rice Soup
If you’re anything like me you are always cooking too much! Last month I made Coconut Curry Chicken. Well, I made it again this weekend and frequently my dinners turn into soups for lunch. I don’t usually post them, but this soup was so good it merits being made just for the soup. A real winner in my book. Continue reading
Jerk-Spiced Pork Chops & Jerk-Spiced Rice
Great minds think alike! Heidi shared a great pork tenderloin recipe yesterday and pork is on the menu again today. It’s a healthy alternative to beef!
I really like Jerk seasoning and haven’t made it in a while…with this meal I decided to not only marinate the pork chops in the jerk seasoning but to also make a rice with the same marinade. It turned out great! Here’s another addition to the Pork Night Repertoire!
Note: My mom recently came to visit me for a few days and she brought along with her some lovely linens…she wanted me to use them for our blog! She’s such a sweetie…so Mom, here’s the pink one…Thank you for giving me such lovely linens!! Continue reading
Chicken Rice Soup
This rainy Northeast weather brings the opportunity to make hearty soups. Recently Heidi served her family a Creamy Pumpkin Soup, a Creamy Mushroom, Sherry & Goat Cheese Soup and a Hearty Chicken & Ham Soup and I served my family Sopa de Carne. Well this week, one of my sons was really not feeling well, and as it’s a well known fact that Chicken Soup is the cure-all for everything, I decided to make him a hearty healing pot of soup. It was the perfect antidote! He’s back up and running and we all got to enjoy this delicious soup right along with him. These are some really great soups to warm you up on these early winter days… Continue reading
