Sundried Tomato and Kalamata Olive Pilaf

Here's the great dish I mentioned yesterday on Home with Lisa Quinn. May I just say, I love being on TV. Perhaps its the fact that everyone was so lovely and accommodating and Lisa herself is just a doll (I sound like my grandmother). I will let you all know when the episode airs but for now enjoy the recipe. I actually made a double batch and took the extras over to my friends' Sari and Siddharth's house. They just had a beautiful baby girl Nina and have had very little time to cook. After taking one bite Sari exclaimed, "Jamie, this is so good! I just love your food." Best complement ever! Be sure to make extra to share with friends, family, or yourself. It stores well in the fridge for 2-3 days and is perfect for a quick weekend lunch.
