This recipe for Spanish Rice is simple to make, easy to modify, and tastes wonderful. I love to make it just about any time I’m doing fajitas or tacos, but it’s also a great side dish for simple chicken dishes, or even with fish.
Asparagus may be my favorite vegetable and I thought there was little to do to improve on it’s perfect simplicity. That is, until I wrapped it in bacon! Here I show you how to make a bacon (or more specifically pancetta) wrapped asparagus, that has all the great grassy, fresh taste of asparagus with the salty, savory flavor of bacon.
