Rice Pilaf

We continue with another side dish that I just love – rice pilaf. I’ve never really had bad rice pilaf, only poorly made, heh. Most people don’t realize you can make it without the box of Rice A Roni, so here’s a pretty simple recipe that I hope will grace the tables of readers far and wide. You can try your own variations with chopped parsley, garlic or onion. I tend to cook with my  nose, so I open the spice cabinet and smell what goes nicely together. Enjoy!
