Another day, another recipe, another member of Chicagogrammers. This time we’ve got Maggie from The Love Nerds hitting us up with a side dish that I ABSOLUTELY will be trying soon! I LOVE Minute Rice Medleys, and the addition of cranberry, pear and spinach is clearly welcome in my book!! Hey Mom, if you’re reading this, maybe we should make this as a Christmas dish?!
