I recently received some saffron for FREE. Yes, I said FREE. A friend gave me quite a bit of it since she doesn't like the flavor. What are your favorite saffron recipes? I've never cooked with it before and want to make sure i make good use of it!

A tasty and foolproof alternative to your standard rice side dish is rice pilaf! Baked in the oven, it comes out fluffy and tender every time.

This delicious seafood paella has been made by my family in Catalonia, Spain for many generations. Chicken, shrimp, calamari, clams, and scallops are cooked to perfection in saffron-flavored rice.

Hi MsDo. This is not the recipe I use but just sharing that saffron is absolutely essential for authentic paella. There are so many variations just like meatloaf and spaghetti recipes. Paella is definitely worth trying. Lucky you to be gifted saffron! Have fun with it!

This seafood Paella looks delicious. I also live about 1/2 mile from Pike's Place Market where I can get some nice seafood to go in this. I think this is a winner! ....and yes, I feel extremely lucky for my saffron gift!

This Alfredo sauce recipe is given a bit of a kick with the addition of fresh jalapeno pepper, as well as the herbal deliciousness of rosemary.

These traditional, raisin-studded, Swedish saffron buns are frequently baked around Christmas time. They are a very tasty and lovely tradition!
