Cranberry Pecan Sweet Potato Wild Rice Pilaf




Cranberry Pecan Sweet Potato Wild Rice Pilaf
Apple juice is just one of the ingredients that help make this Wild Rice Pilaf so magical. It is one of the most intoxicatingly delicious rice dishes I have ever consumed. And consume I did. I was shooting two recipes the day I photographed this Wild Rice Pilaf – the rice and my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake.

I shot the wild rice first and the cake second, so every trip back to the kitchen, I would pause and eat more rice – I could barely tear myself away. And each time I did, I just made another excuse to head back to the kitchen for more rice. Shooting that cake took twice as long as it should have.
