Rice Recipe

Wow the response for the rice recipe was overwhelming! Since this was her family recipe. I thought it was only fair that I ask permission before posting it on my blog. I know many of you asked me personally to email it it you, but I thought posting it here would be easier. That way if you didn't ask me personally you would still have the opportunity to get the recipe! Here we go....

3 1/2 cups of long grain white rice (this can be adjusted to the size of your family and she recommends Goya Jasmine Rice)
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Sprinkle in Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin (to your taste)
Cut up fresh Cilantro (the amount and use is completely optional)
2 packets of Sazon Goya (make sure it has Gehiote in it for color)
3 cups of stock from whatever type of meat you want to use example chicken, pork tenderloin (my fav) etc. Also use the meat in the rice to for flavor (the amount and use is optional)
1 can including stock of Green Pigeon Peas
3 tablespoons of Recaito

Cook on high until it reaches a boil then turn it to medium and cook for about 15min until rice is done and the stock used is gone.

Now, if you are like me a lot of the ingredients can seem a bit overwhelming since I don't make a lot of Spanish dishes, but you should be able to find most of the ingredients in the Spanish section at your local grocery store.

I hope the recipe is easy to understand please let me know if you have any questions! Oh, and let me know if you have tried the recipe too! Good Luck!!

Thanks for the Lesson

This card is for a dear friend of mine who gave me a cooking lesson this week. She showed me how to make her famous (yummy in the tummy) rice dish. We had so much fun together!

So with this card I used the From the Kitchen Circut Cartridge. I cut the cute stove at 3 and the pot, which happens to look like the same pot we used at 1 1/4. The sentiment I printed on the computer. The pattern paper is from Stampin Up as well as the blue cardstock. The base of the card is white cardstock from Papertrey Ink. The white trim at the top is from Hobby Lobby and the pink ribbon is from the Dollar Tree. The yellow flower is from Recollection purchased at Michael's. I used my I-Rock for the knobs on the stove and the center of the flower with the sentiment. I hope you enjoyed my post!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You

For today's post, I am sharing a Thank You card I made for some friends. The two most exciting things about this card are my "I am roses flowers" and Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.

So, lets start at the beginning. I cut the base with Paper Trey Ink cardstock in Fine Linen. I then layered the card with patten papers by DCWV. I used a stamp from Stamping Up and colored it up with my Stampin Up markers. The ribbon is from the Dollar Tree. I used a memo pin from Tim Holtz and the sentiment is from My Creative Time (see her button to the right of this post). The flowers are from iamroses.com, if you haven't already purchased from them you are missing out. The quality of these flowers are so close to Prima I would swear they were Prima's. The flower believe it or not where white, but I used my Lindy's to color them up. Oh, the shimmer (swoon) I LOVE my Lindy's!

That's about it. I hope you enjoyed my post. See you next time!
