Instant Pot Wild Rice Pilaf

Instant Pot Wild Rice Pilaf

I’m a huge fan of rice pilaf, especially ones with wild rice in them. Now, I might be able to claim that’s coz I’m from Minnesota, you betcha, which for decades was the bastion of wild rice. Truth be told, it’s because I’m a child of the 1960s and wild rice pilaf was served at so many restaurants, especially with kebabs which became wildly popular around that time period. Now I make Instant Pot Wild Rice Pilaf and it’s a game-changer.

Sticky Sweet Ribs

So I was watching Diner’s Drive-Ins and Dives (funny, but a lot of my conversations start out like this) and I saw the most amazing looking food from Tiki Iniki a restaurant in Princeton, Hawaii on their episode International Infusion. They featured their Sweet Sticky Sweet Ribs, and I had to ask myself, “Am I a Sticky Sweet Ribs person?” I was soon to find out, although the recipe I made isn’t the same as the ribs at Tiki Iniki, it’s definitely adapted from their recipe – think of this recipe as a “fabulously frugalized” version of their ribs.

Sheet Tray Sausages with Onions & Grapes

Every once in awhile I come across a recipe that defies every known law of cooking! That’s this one. Sheet Tray Sausages with Onions & Grapes. It has a handful of ingredients, one admittedly a little strange, that you might have at home. It’s no effort, drop-dead simple and ready in about 35 minutes. And it’s so absolutely delish you’re gonna be flabbergasted by how good it is. Sound like a small miracle? Yep. And we all need small miracles every now and then.

Some of you might know, while others of you might not have a clue until you’re ready to bake your Pumpkin Pie (probably the evening before Thanksgiving) that Libby’s changed their pumpkin pie recipe (yes, the one from the back of the can) this fall (2019.) It’s the first time there has been a change on the can since the original Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie was put on the can in 1950.
