Make Chicken & Mushroom Mock Risotto with Minute Rice

I love cooking flavourful dishes for supper, but I don’t always have the time to cook something that requires a lot of ingredients and time. Between the kids homework, dance class, chores, reading, and all of the other things that come with normal family life during the precious hours between school and bedtime, I need to stick with quick and easy suppers. The other day, I had the desire to make some decadent and creamy mushroom risotto. If you’ve ever tried risotto, you’ll know how comforting and delicious this rice dish tastes. So yummy! With the help of Minute Rice and my taste buds, I was able to come up with a method to make a mock risotto that tastes just as creamy as the real thing but takes much less time to make. Let me show you how easy it is to make this chicken and mushroom mock risotto!Continue reading

Make Heart Shaped Beignets for Valentine’s Day

I’ve only ever heard of beignets from the Disney movie The Princess and the Frog. My girls enjoy that movie, and our dear heroine, Tiana, makes beignets in her New Orleans Cafe. Recently, I was curious about what they were exactly, and then when I found out that they were essentially baby donuts smothered in icing sugar, I was sold. We HAD to make these, and we had to make them for Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is huge in our house – it’s Little C’s favourite holiday of the year – so finding the perfect treat for the day is a must. Let me show you how to make heart shaped beignets that I hope would make Tiana proud.Continue reading
