CLICK HERE for the Valentine's Giveaway! We're giving away a Blendtec, tieks (pictured below) and so much more! Coconut Rice is a wonderful way to change up your rice game. Really, after a while plain ol' rice gets kinda old! (brown or white) You can make this to go with BOTH savory and sweet meals. For instance I love to serve mine along side of my Lettuce Wraps, or the Mongolian Beef on top. It's also fabulous with the Rumbi Rice Bowls and the Hawaiian Haystacks. But top it with just some . . .
Some days calories don't matter. Birthday. Christmas. Thanksgiving AND Super Bowl Sunday. This post is set aside for all many different super bowl foods on our site. I'm sure there are plenty more we have missed so feel free to browse around to find the perfect recipe for your party. They are special days we set aside to hang out with friends and families. We catch up on our lives, laugh about old times and also, maybe, some cheering yelling and chest bumping. Of course, we cannot do all . . .
My husband, Jim, grew up in a town in northern San Diego called Fallbrook. The town is known for its amazing avocado groves. They claim the title of "The Avocado Capitol of the Country." They even have an avocado festival there each year. So -people that grew up there probably know a thing or two about guacamole. :) Jim's brother, Bob, makes this guacamole and it's awesome! My kids call him "Uncle Bob" and are completely smitten with him. After all - he plays trains and cars with . . .
This week we showcased a few recipes that were made in a 9x13 pan. the 9x13 pan is NOT just for cake mixes and casseroles - although we are certainly not apposed to those things either! We have a haa-uge list of recipes that were whipped up in our favorite item of bakeware. This will be a great post to pin or bookmark because we plan on adding to this list going forward! Or checkout our 9x13 tag for a blog roll of all of our 9x13 recipes. Below the links be sure to take a look at some of . . .
I just love a good creamy risotto. 'Risotto' is style of cooking rice so that it is more creamy. The creamy happens because the rice is cooked in some type of broth and it releases starches making the entire dish thicken and become creamy. Long grain rice doesn't work so well for this. Short grained rice, particularly Arborio rice is the best. The shorter the grain the more starch. If you wanted to make a simple pot of arborio rice, you simmer some rice in veggie or meat broth and stir and stir, . . .
I needed a side dish for some coconut chicken I was making and was totally stumped. I had some mango salsa sitting in the fridge from some fish tacos I'd made and BAM. It hit me. Don't you love it when the food gods smile down on you? Oh, I do. This is suuuuuuuch an easy meal to prep beforehand. Make your salsa and thai peanut dipping sauce and slice the veggies at some point in the week, or in the morning, whatevs, so all you have to do is roll the rolls and you're ready for . . .
Are you guys convinced yet that pressure cookers are pretty amazing? Steph's previous post vegetarian chili and pot roast had me drooling.. if you didn't catch her pressure cooker roast and chili recipes you need to go check them out! Today I'm going to share a simple yet delicious black bean and rice recipe. Since I received my Power Pressure Cooker XL a few months ago I've been playing with different recipes and cooking methods. Many so good and quick! But the function I found myself utilizing . . .
Crostini is one of my favorite appetizers. Classic bruschetta, mediterranean bruschetta, and now peach, ricotta, and basil crostini. Such an easy app to whip up, and hellooooo summer! Homemade ricotta really makes the dish. You boil milk and cream, add lemon juice, and let it strain for a couple of hours. That's IT! Thick and creamy, fresh ricotta pairs perfectly on the buttered, grilled toasts! Top with a juicy peach (or nectarine) slice, earthy basil, and a fruity balsamic glaze . . .
Tacos are life. Especially here at OhSo, I don't believe we've met a taco we didn't like. Velvet Taco is one of my favorite taco joints here in Dallas (shrimp and grits taco is next on my list of things to recreate). One of my friends introduced me to their elote. Many of you may have had elote, or corn on the cob with all the traditional Mexican slathering of mayo, lime, cheese, spices. I can't do the mayo, so I was super stoked they didn't use that, AND! and they put it all in a cup for you. I . . .
I really haven't ever met a soul who does not love a good bowl of guacamole!? (not that they don't exist!) I have a secret ingredient to my own recipe that always has friends asking for the recipe! Wanna know what it is? I'll tell ya, just not yet. You know that I often work with one of my favorite grocery stores, Ralphs. This month they challenged us to make a recipe of the best guac of our life! They also are hosting a huge sweepstakes. The sweepstakes will run between Friday, July 15 – . . .
