Drunken Fried Rice

Drunken Fried Rice! Yes, there is such a thing and I’m soooo happy to know it! See, my baby sis just told me she was having leftover take out Drunken Noodles for lunch and a craving hit. Maybe even a touch of jealously. But poor me, no takeout, no noodles in the cupboard. I was planning on making Fried Rice, though, and made extra rice last night with dinner just so I’d have rice ready for it.

Pork Fried Rice

Does it seem that time is just slipping by faster and faster or is it just me? I meant to post this for you as an option for leftovers from the Country Style Ribs in the Slow Cooker. I made that recipe months ago! At long last, here’s my favorite home-cooked better than take-out Pork Fried Rice. And I’m posting it right along with my newer Drunken Fried Rice, so you’ll have two options.

Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus!

Arancini – Stuffed, Breaded and Fried Risotto Balls

If I’m thinking ahead, when I make any Risotto, like my Roasted Red Pepper & Shrimp Risotto or my Asparagus Risotto, I’ll make a little extra just to make these wonderful little gems called Arancini.

Roasted Red Pepper & Shrimp Risotto

If you’re watching your budget, chances are you’re not eating a lot of seafood, but when a holiday like Valentine’s comes around, you’re probably going to want something a little special. Maybe something like this Roasted Red Pepper & Shrimp Risotto.

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Kale

When Angie over at Fiesta Friday challenged other food bloggers to create a healthy dish this month, I was all set. See I’ve been making so many marvelous healthy dishes with cauliflower this month (I just can’t seem to get enough of it – maybe I’m lacking some trace mineral it has) that I thought I could just slide a recipe right by her.

Rice with a Puerto Rican Flair

I gotta admit that usually when I’m looking for a killer side, I’m thinking potatoes. What can I say? I’m from the North and have Irish roots – so maybe it’s genetic, lol! Sometimes rice just feels right, though, and it definitely did when I served Pernil, an herby, garlicky pork roast with Puerto Rican roots. Whoever guesses what recipe is coming next gets a prize…a free recipe for Pernil!
