Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Herbed rice

  • 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  •  2 tablespoons  of chopped fresh parsley, basil, oregano or thyme
  • or 2 teaspoons each if you are using dried herbs

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan:add rice.Cover , reduce hat and simmer 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed, Add the herbs last 7 or 5 minutes.
I have to mention how being born and bred mostly in Texas(although I still feel
very Californian) I didn't think it was possible to have good rice without a truck load of butter or margarine.  In the past if I had rice or grits and no butter
I flat out would not eat it.  I usually felt like I was being punished.  So I am really glad to share this recipe because it  was really good.  Even the picky eater at it.  I also had some fresh Italian leaf parsley and fresh basil and it really made
a nice presentation and went really well with the sauteed pork  chops I made that day.  Well until next time stay gold

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
