Ginger, garlic and soy chicken with turmeric rice


MissFoodFairy's ginger, garlic & soy chicken #3

As you may or may not know, I’m suffering a bit with hayfever, as it’s Spring here in Australia. I’ve done some research about ginger, garlic & turmeric being very helpful with hayfever relief.

Easy mushroom pilaf

MissFoodFairy's mushroom pilaf rice #4

Pilaf, pilau, palau or plov, however you call it, it’s basically a rice dish that’s cooked in a seasoned stock, either in the oven or on the stove top. Where did pilaf originate from?
