Easy Stovetop Spanish Rice

The other night I wanted to make a fun Mexican-themed dinner. Instead of doing my usual brown rice on the side, I decided to try and make some Spanish rice. This recipe is easy, delicious and tastes super authentic. I put it on the stovetop the same time I made my fajita chicken (recipe to come) and it was a delicious meal.

A few hints: this makes a LOT of rice (like 4 cups), which you can easily portion out and freeze or make for a small crowd. Also, I used brown basmati rice because that’s what I had. Feel free to play around with what type of rice you want to use, just be mindful of liquid to rice ratio and cooking time.

He’s Home

After 9 long months, Q returned to us. In true Army fashion, the flight was delayed 3 times, but on Wednesday evening at 8:03PM, Carl and I saw his plane touch down. Then about 20 minutes later, we got to hold him in our arms. It was the greatest feeling in the whole world. We have the next few weeks together before he heads off to training, and we are loving every minute of it.

We may be celebrating miles apart, but Q and I were able to talk on the phone today and share some pictures from across the globe. We are counting down the days and so excited for what 2017 is going to bring!

Around this time of year I always get excited for my favorite treat at Starbucks: Cranberry Bliss Bars! A few years ago, I attempted to make them at home and remember loving the, so this weekend while I was in TN, I tried again!

They are actually super simple to make. The white chocolate “drizzle” is more challenging since the chocolate seizes up pretty quickly, but I did more “dallop” than “drizzle” haha! These are a huge hit, and if you cut them into little triangles, no one will know the Starbucks version versus yours!
