I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon Saffron Rice

Beautiful, bright saffron is a savory seasoning and in this rice dish enhanced by the tang of lemon and a pop of green parsley!

If you follow me you may remember my Turmeric Rice from a few weeks back. Someone commented that it was a poor man's Saffron Rice. Well here's the real deal! While saffron may be pricey it is only used sparingly with turmeric still pumping up the colour. 


2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup long grain white rice or basmati
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
juice of 1/2 large lemon
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp saffron (no more or your rice might taste bitter)

2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley

Mix everything except the parsley together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat cover and simmer 20 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes then fluff with a fork, add the parsley and serve.
