I love a good recipe that has few ingredients, is simple to make, that is the perfect side dish to add to your dinner table. It’s not always easy to put a hot, homemade dinner on a busy weekday evening. This copycat recipe is so versatile-you can put it in a burrito or rice bowl.

Ingredients for cilantro lime rice, coconut milk, salt, pepper, basmati rice,lime, cilantro

This recipe only takes a few ingredients-White or brown rice-which ever you prefer. I have used Mahatma Jasmine or Basmati rice-both are delicious. I use canned coconut milk-I like it better than the coconut milk in the carton for cooking with. Fresh limes and cilantro make the best seasoned recipe. I also add a bit of honey and salt and pepper to taste.

Can I use dried Cilantro in Cilantro Lime Rice?

Absolutely! This is so good with fresh or dried cilantro. If you don’t like lime in your cilantro rice, it is just as good without lime.

I start by finely chopping my cilantro with a sharp knife. Then I quarter the limes. I like to cut the limes on a plastic or marble cutting board.

Can I cook cilantro lime rice in a rice cooker?

Yes. Whether you are cooking your rice on the stovetop in a saucepan or in a rice cooker, I add my rice, coconut milk, then any water to cover the rice by a half of an inch. The coconut milk will make a creamy rice. You are going to love it.

At Home in Millbrook with Darren Henault

When designer Darren Henault and husband Michael Bassett went in search of a weekend house for their family, they knew they didn’t want to be in the Hamptons. Instead they headed to horsey Millbrook, NY where they could indulge their passion for riding. The good news is they found a charming 1800 farmhouse with over 50 acres. The less than good news was that it had been a Christmas tree farm and 3,000 trees needed to be removed or relocated to undertake the massive project of landscaping the property. Please join me and Susanna for a behind the scenes visit with Darren at his bucolic country retreat.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
