Easy Yellow Rice 

(based on a Food Network Recipe)

Prep time: 5 minutes  Cook time: 15 to 20 minutes

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 2 cups long grain basmati rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • chopped chives or green onions for garnish
Cooking Directions
  1. In a medium saucepan combine butter, turmeric and cumin. Saute on medium heat until butter is melted and lightly foaming, while stirring it with the spices. Add rice and stir until the rice is completely coated with the spice mixture.
  2. Add water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until water is completely absorbed about 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve warm with chives or scallions.

Chicken and Yellow Rice is a staple in the Tampa Bay area.  Use chicken broth instead of water.  Quick brown your chicken and finish cooking with the rice or cook in broth before adding rice.  Also good with pork or seafood.

             How To Make Whipped Feta I





  • 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled and at room temperature
  • 3 ounces whipped cream cheese, at room temperature


Add crumbled feta to a food processor and pulse until small crumbs remain. Add in cream cheese and puree for 4-5 minutes, scraping down the sides when necessary, until feta is super creamy.


Serve as desired.  Use your favorite toppings!

I make Greek bruchetta using the whipped feta topped with roasted tomatoes, olives, cucumber pieces, fresh herbs and roasted garlic oil. 


Next ingredient:  Olive oil

Thank you for that Feta spread recipe!  That definitely is right up my alley and falls into my "Why didn't I think of that" category.


Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli with Olive Oil-Fried Egg

If you don’t like eggs, try topping it with a few slices of smoked salmon.

In addition to keeping you full with a big dose of fiber, broccoli may be able to reduce your risk of obesity. A number of studies, including one from 2012, reported a type of compound found in broccoli could prevent weight gain and metabolic disorders. Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 medium broccoli head, top cut into florets, stem peeled and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
  • ¼ onion, halved, and cut into strips
  • 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Salsa

Directions: Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.

Add sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to char on the outside, about 10 minutes.

Add onion and broccoli and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and broccoli is bright green, about 7 to 8 minutes.

Transfer vegetables to a plate and keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan. Add eggs and cook until whites are set. Flip and cook until top is set, but yolks remain runny. Season with salt and pepper. Serve eggs over vegetables with salsa.
