Yangzhou Fried Rice
The city of Yangzhou in eastern Jiangsu Province is one of the ancient centers of Chinese gastronomy and the heartland of what is known as Huaiyang Cuisine. Strangely, only one of its dishes is widely known in the West and that is Yangzhou fried rice, which is on the menu of almost every overseas Cantonese restaurant. A colorful mixture of fragrant rice with diced meat, seafood, and vegetables, it traditionally includes a little sea cucumber and crabmeat as well as fresh bamboo shoots. Many versions, even some of those cooked up in Yangzhou itself, make this dish as a simple fried rice, but the classic recipe, upon which mine is based, includes an injection of chicken stock that adds an extra deliciousness. I have omitted hard-to-find ingredients, such as sea cucumber. I first wrote this recipe for a Chinese New Year's feature in a magazine. One friend told me afterward that it had been such a hit with her children that she had been making it almost once a week ever since, so I've included it here in her honor. Don't worry if you don’t have every ingredient: The key is to have a tempting selection of colors and tastes amid the rice. There's no need to weigh them exactly; just aim to have a small pile (about 3 tablespoons when chopped) of each. Yangzhou fried rice can be served as part of a special Chinese meal, or as a whole meal in itself, perhaps with simply a salad or a lightly cooked green vegetable on the side.

In 1846, curry’s place in the hearts and minds of the British people was forever fixed when William Makepeace Thackeray wrote "Poem to Curry," with its sweeping conclusion, "Tis, when done/A dish for Emperors to feed upon." So as it turns out, St. John’s vegetarian curry is British to the core, although some Brits do lament its kudzu-like way of overtaking fish and chips as the national dish. It starts with a quick sauté of onion, celery, and garlic in butter, along with a heaping spoonful of curry powder. Chickpeas are used here for a vegetarian source of protein, but any large legume will do, including fava beans or giant white butterbeans.  Click here to see The Ultimate 1-Pot Meal Roundup.

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
Including the fresh vegetables we grew in our summer garden, Beth and I were raised on basic foods: meat, potatoes, white rice, and gravy. That pretty much covers every meal you’d ever need. My mama was serving up the dishes that her mama, Lizzie, taught her make. I think we were all slow to try new things, because we knew what we liked, and we didn’t want to changes things that much. This dish is the first “new” recipe I remember trying that had wild rice in it. I thought I was doing something crazy by eating wild rice! This dish has now become a regular at my dinner table. I love to take this casserole to parties or church suppers.Click here to see 101 Ways to Cook Chicken

Balsamic Shiitake Rice Salad
I don’t know how I’ve lived on this Earth for almost 30 years and never had black rice before, but it’s true. I figured it would be a lot like brown rice, but to my surprise it wasn’t. It was a bit rougher (if that is even a word) and not as soft and fluffy as its brown rice cousin. At first I was a bit perplexed as to what to pair it with, but once I closed my eyes and started to imagine other flavors that would complement this rice — my mind ran wild. Slivered almonds and fresh scallions are all the rage right now in my kitchen, so I of course had to toss them in there. See all salad recipes.
