Ingredients You Should Add to Everything (and Make it Taste Great!)

I know there are a lot of different tastes out there but I’ll tell you these ingredients will work for everyone. I’ve found when you add these five essential seasonings to anything, be it chicken, or steak, or pasta, but what I learned was from making AMAZING rice, the food comes out with a smell, look, flavor anyone would delight in. I know, you say ‘rice?’ Well my friend from middle school wrote me the other day to say she saw an ad for some kind of rice in a magazine and it reminded her of the best rice she’d ever had, mine.

So how I started wasn’t very out of the ordinary, my grandparents, both Italian would cook all day long, so my cousin and I would go over and make anything that was simple enough for us to make, mainly cookies (that recipe will come soon enough!). One night my mom was coming home late from work so I chose to make a meal for dinner, it included, chicken with a cream cheese and chive spread, rolled in bacon and then baked but the thing I didn’t know how to make was rice. I called my small Italian Mommom and questioned for her recipe, might have been the best thing I could have done. I don’t reckon the rice has ever come out the way it did that first night cooking but its damn tasty every time.

Mommom’s Rice


-2 cups long/med white rice
-2 cans chicken broth
-1 small onion, chopped
-3 tablespoons of butter/margarine
-parsley, garlic powder
-salt and pepper

Get a medium sized pot with a lid. Place the 3 tablespoons butter along with the onions in the pot and turn the heat to low and let simmer. When onions are soft but not brown, add rice, let simmer for a couple more minutes. Once the rice is starting to brown a small add both cans of chicken broth. Turn the heat up to high, let boil. When the broth starts to boil turn the heat down slightly, add parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper, you want a excellent amount of each so the flavor can explore your taste buds. Believe me, you’ll want them to savor this. Turn the heat back to low place lid on and let cook through, may take about 30 minutes. If need be add more seasonings half way through the cooking. Also you don’t want to over cook the rice, it will come out very mushy and not excellent, keep an eye on your rice, stirring occasionally. Bon Appetite!

Can anyone guess what those key ingredients my article is speaking of? That’s right. It’s the seasonings. Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Parsley, and since I gave the rice recipe these were fresh but also Onion Powder. I’m telling you if you can get the right blend of these 5 seasonings then you can make anything taste fantastic, granted you aren’t my boyfriend’s mother who turns pancakes into stoning material but I highly doubt that. I hope I’ve helped and I sure will be writing more articles, giving away more tasty recipes, for you!
