      These Salt Crusted Baby Potatoes might be our new favorite side! With almost no prep time, you can let your oven do all the hard work for this low maintenance side dish. These little babies are soft on the inside with crispy and salty skins.

As the name would make you think, this Sweet Creamed Rice isn’t your typical savory side dish, but unique sides keep the dinner table interesting.     While I consider this a special side dish, there aren’t any fancy ingredients or fussy instructions. Just simple, everyday pantry staples combined to make an extra special side that I love to serve alongside grilled chicken, steak or…

  • Sticky Rice

I mean, the directions are on the bag, how hard can it be? Well after lots of nights with dry or hard rice I knew needed a new recipe. But there were a few rules, it needed to be sticky and fast. This sticky rice lays the perfect foundation for the recipe I’m going to be sharing later this week. Think Chipotle meets Hibachi. Interested yet?   Print Sticky Rice Prep Time 5 mins Cook Time 45…
