Yellow Fried Rice

"I wanted to make a fried rice similar to the kind served at Mall food courts and the local Chinese buffet. Since the saffron rice is already seasoned, it's faster than ordering take-out!"

  1. what an easy way to make fried rice a really good idea add a little green onion too


The joy of my life are my 2 sons, born in Dec. 00 and Jan. 04. I am currently a stay at home mom and love to make homemade meals and treats for my family. I live in PA, but the rest of my family are in AL and GA, and my boys and I spend weeks at a time in the South. I enjoy traveling with my husband and 2 sons. I am an Auburn University Alumni and a HUGE Auburn Tigers fan...WAR EAGLE! From August until November, you know what I'll be doing on Saturdays...watching ANY NCAA game on TV. I am also a fan of NASCAR. I have only been to 2 tracks, Talladega several times and Dover once, but I hope to visit many more. Pocono is only an hour away, so maybe someday! Atlanta is another real possibility with family close by. My furbaby Wickett (a pekinese-poodle mix I had for almost 14 years) went to live at the Rainbow Bridge on April 4, 2007. He was literally my first born child! He will always be in my heart. We have a new dog now, Roxie, who is a Shih-tzu. I am an animal lover, and will always have a pet! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza">
