I only made the rice component of this dish, because I just wanted a nice flavored rice to go with a chicken korma recipe. I could not find Basmati rice, so I used Jasmine instead and it worked perfectly.

The rice is fabulous. I did add some thinly sliced onions to shake up the texture (cooked them in the butter first, before adding...

I made this slightly different. We had Ms. Burrell's garlic chicken in casserole last night for dinner and so I used the leftover marinated chicken thighs for this soup. I also made my own stock from the chicken carcass.

Other than that, I followed this recipe, adding the crushed red, lemon juice/halves and the cinnamon and nutmeg....

I know the recipe says "to taste", but I like to give Anne Burrell the benefit of the doubt. I used the full 3 TAB of salt (Kosher). I did taste the rub before using it, and found it to be fine, so I seasoned my ribeyes and left them in the fridge for 24 hours.

I cooked them the next day using a pan-sear and oven finish, since we...

Delicious!

I used about 2.5 lbs of onions (8ish medium ones). I was worried about my pot being able to adequately sweat that many onions, so I cooked half in the soup pot and the other half in a separate pan and combined them after they had sweated down in size a bit. Overall, I cooked the onions slowly for almost 2 hours to get...

I originally made this as a side salad for dinner, but I actually think it would make a FABULOUS breakfast as well.

I did make 1 change: I added balsamic vinegar to the dressed arugula. I did this because my husband really likes his asparagus acidic, and years of being married to him has taught me that lemon juice just doesn't...

I cooked only 1 chicken, but left all ingredient amounts the same. It was perfect! The cooking time in the recipe is quite variable, depending on oven. I basically just cooked each side until it "felt" brown enough. When I first went to pirouette the bird over, I was immediatly taken aback by how tender the meat already was. By the end of the coo...
