My Sister’s Secret….

This next dish was inspired by my beautiful older sister (and her crazy husband)
She is the queen of one-pot, affordable family meals. When she shared with me her secret for cooking rice, I just knew I had to give it a try. 
The perfect excuse came in my husband’s carry-on bag. He arrived home with a foodie gift straight from Columbus, OH. He brought me a fresh spice mix North Market Spices
This quirky little spice shop is serious about the quality of their spices. If you are ever in Columbus, definitely check them out! 
Back to the recipe, this meal is perfect for a busy mom. Simply throw whatever you have in your casserole dish, cover it tightly with foil, toss it in the oven, and walk away for an hour to an hour and a half. Voila! Dinner is served!

  1. I just gotta say, the titles of your posts just pull me in! You are so clever and witty. I guess I should tell a secret of my own. It isn't only the recipes you post that bring me here. The writing and the story telling is so wonderful. You really have some talent sista! But tomatoes without out salt, I don't think so, just makes me put more in the food itself 🙂 Wish I had this ready to go after yesterdays 6 hours in the 7th Mn snow storm for the season, 5 more inches to deal with.
