African Style Rice

"I am posting this to serve with Easy African-style peanut chicken. I am a single mother with a disabled child. Since I work and go to college, I need easy, delicious dinners. This isn't really authentic but a friend of mine is in Africa and sends me recipes to "tweak" for my ease of cooking!"

<img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Hello!!! I am a single mother of a multi handicapped 4 year old and I am a full time college student and I work in the health care field, I also take great delight in regional classics and authentic foods. Biggest pet peeves: I understand people like to take recipes that are from a culturally diverse background and make it their own (either by Americanizing it or what not..) but claiming it to be authentic. I prefer that a person says "This is my knock-off version". For me, it's like somebody carrying a Fake Prada and saying it's the real deal. It's not. I am very fair on my judging of recipes. Don't be offended if I don't like it. You can't make them all happy. I will tell you why it didn't work for me and maybe some suggestions on what could make it better or more appealing. Do not email me your nasty messages about it or have you and your recipe posting buddies harass me because I say your recipe isn't traditional. Because it's not and it's a blatant lie and you should say it isn't traditional. I don't get offended if people don't like mine. Different strokes for different folks. It doesn't hurt me not does it make or break my bank.
