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 posted. I guess time to catch up is here.

Let’s start with a new recipe that I prepared a 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 about how to use it. As you all know, I do not wander too far when it comes to seasoning, but this intrigued and I was excited to put it to good use.

The 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 had not seen my kitchen in a while… and dinner was formulating in my head.

Easy adaptation of one of my dad’s 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, I loved the flavor. It is not too powerful on the garlic yet giving the rice the sweet-sour flavor that needed. It’s a great combination and well-accepted by my little man.

I also decided to season my pork chop with it and loved the flavor. Steamed broccolis where requested and salad for the adults.
