Best Spanish Rice
I've tried about 15 or 20 different Spanish rice recipes over the years as its one of my favorite sides to accompany Mexican and Spanish cuisine. Some have been better than others, but nearly all have fallen short. I didn't think this one would be any good because there are so few ingredients, but decided to try it since I was cooking for a picky eater who likes food with fewer, simpler ingredients. Success!!! I will never, ever use another recipe again. I've made it several times since and it has never let me down. I cook from scratch, however because of food allergies in my household, so instead of using store bought salsa, I mix a can of organic tomatoes (or a few fresh that are quartered), a quarter cup of loosely chopped onion, with a good bunch of chopped cilantro, salt, garlic clove, a few slices of pickled jalepeno, and some pickled jalepeno juice, pulse a few times in a food processor, and use that, with the extra saved for the main meal. I usually add a bit of cumin to the rice and some fresh chopped cilantro after its cooked.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
I change the servings to 64 and make a mason jar full of the spice (2 cup capacity, I believe). I use it for everything! Even add a bit to my chicken noodle soup for an extra kick, or add lots if I'm really congested to clear my sinuses. I love adding it to drumsticks before throwing them on the grill too. I do cut the salt down to about 2/3 of what the recipe calls and almost double the paprika and add a bit of the no salt seasoning to compensate, because otherwise it can be a bit salty, especially if you add it to things like pork. I'm tempted to use it on a turkey with a little sage for thanksgiving, letting it marinate overnight, as the traditional bland turkey has always deterred my family from eating turkey during the holidays. Yum!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I
Delicious, however, think of it as a truffle. It's as rich as a tiny truffle, so cutting yourself a cake-sized piece of truffle is WAY too rich. Everyone loved it and raved about it, but in the end, several could not finish their smallish piece of cake, even cutting it with whipped cream. This is not an entirely bad problem to have, however. I will make it again, but I will likely bake it in my mini cupcake pan next time.
