Rice with Dried Cranberries – A new spin to your rice

Rice with dried cranberries.

It feels for ever since my last posting and I notice that I have new recipes that I have made and yet did not post them. I guess time to catch up is here.

Let’s start with a new recipe that I prepared couple of nights ago.  As I was working out with a couple of friends I was offered a sample of Slavosalt to try. An Arizona based company specializing in all natural seasoning. I accepted the sample and started thinking in my head how to use it. As you all know, I do not wonder too far when it comes to seasoning, but this intrigued and I was excited to put it to good use.

Evening is upon us, and the infamous question of what for dinner is lingering in the kitchen. I have great pork chops from my favorite man, Pete, and something needed to be created to go along. Rice has not see my kitchen in a while… and dinner was formulating in my head.

Easy adaptation of one of my dad favorite rice with a twist: rice with dried cranberries and parsley.  Cooking along, time for seasoning was here.  The rice tasted sweet so why not add the new Slavosalt to it and see what happens.  I must say, loved the flavor. Not too powerful on the garlic yet giving the rice the sweet-sour flavor that needed. Great combination and well accepted by my little man.

Decided to season my pork chop as well with it and loved the flavor.  Steamed broccolis where requested and salad for the adults.

Bon Appetit!!


Tonight’s dinner:
