My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Jasmine Rice Pilaf

{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Cooking Time: 12-15 mins / Yields: 6 cups }

4 Tbsp unsalted butter (salted will work fine too)
1/2 cup yellow or white onion, finely chopped
2 cup Jasmine long grain rice (any long grain rice will do)
4 cups chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt, plus more to taste
1/2 tsp pepper, plus more to taste

1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until lightly brown & translucent (about 5-7 mins). Add the garlic and cook for 1 more min. 
2. Add chicken broth and rice. Bring to a slight boil, then turn heat to low. Cover the pan with a lid, and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork. Season with salt & pepper.
