It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

Dirty Rice and German Chocolate Cupcakes

A few people have asked for the Dirty Rice recipe, and those cupcakes I made for E were so good that I thought I'd share that recipe too!

Dirty Rice

1/2 lb bulk Italian sausage (I use smoked turkey sausage instead and cut into slices)
2 cups water or chicken broth
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup finley chopped celery
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
butter or oil

1. Brown sausage in skillet 6 to 8 minutes.
Or, if you bought smoked sausage links instead, cook according to package directions.

2. Melt butter or place oil in a pan and saute rice until golden. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, stirring occasionally until rice is tender.
