Cheesy Mexican Rice

Cheesy Mexican Rice from LynnsKitchenAdventures.com

Mexican style rice is a favorite in our house and is a recipe that I have been making for years. In fact, we have it so often as a side dish to Mexican or Tex-Mex type meals, that my family has grown a little tired of it. So, I recently decided to change it up a bit by adding cheese. Cheese makes everything better right?! […]

Pumpkin Risotto

I love risotto, but most risottos can be time consuming and a bit of a hassle to make. However, I have been making oven risotto for years, and love it. It gives you the taste and creaminess of risotto, but it is so easy because the oven does the work for you. Over the last couple of years I have adapted my basic oven risotto […]

Easy Green Chili Rice

I have green chili rice on my site that I posted earlier this year, but I have been looking for something a little different. I wanted something that was the same basic idea, but since we like variety in our house I wanted it to be just a little different. I was also looking for something that would still be an easy side dish for Mexican […]

We love Chipotle restaurant. We actually had never eaten there until a few months ago, but once we ate there, we loved it. However, if you know me, you know I like to make at home versions of food we love. So, I started searching for something like Chipotle that I could make at home. I found quite a few recipes, but most of them did […]

Homemade Rice A Roni

Homemade Rice A Roni

This homemade Rice A Roni is easy to make and tastes great! One of the things that I have done in trying to avoid packaged food is to cut out all packaged rice and pasta mixes. We did not eat them very often, but I would keep them on hand for a quick and easy side dish. I have tried several recipes that I found […]

Oven Risotto With Sausage and Tomatoes

  Several years ago Martha Stewart’s Everyday Foods had a recipe for oven risotto. I have made it many times and I really like it for a side dish. It is really good for how easy it is. I recently was looking at the Martha Stewart website and they had a recipe for a regular risotto with tomatoes and sausage. I thought why not combine the […]
