"This rice dish is a nice complement to the Glazed Cornish hens as pictured. I used diced dried mango and it was received by ALL at Easter dinner!"

"This stuffing recipe is a really nice complement to orange glazed roast duck. I think it would also pair nicely with any other roasted poultry. My son even tried it, and he is very picky. I'm planning on making this to accompany a roast turkey breast at my next family gathering."
