Pineapple Ginger Rice

Rice is a great side dish for so many meals but plain white rice is boring! The terrific thing about rice is it can get all gussied up and fit right in with darned near anything! When I make Asian dishes or if I’m making something that has that tropical vibe I make my Pineapple Ginger Rice.

Pineapple Ginger Rice turns meals into a tropical getaway!

Yellow Rice with Cardamom

As a kid I was always delighted when Daddy took us to Greektown in Detroit. All those fragrant dishes that tasted so wonderful and seemed so exotic captivated me. And one of the ones that, for some reason, really intrigued me was the yellow rice they served, usually with tomato sauce. I decided to try my own version of yellow rice with cardamom.
