Classic Rice Pilaf
BEST. RICE . EVER! All the steps in making this are absolutely worth it. I have a family of four and EVERYONE (kids included) wanted seconds! I'm so glad I didn't decide to scale back the recipe because they also requested the leftovers the very next day! I chopped the onions very small because my kids are the kind that will pick them out, but no one even knew they were in the rice! They just "melted"! I only put a dash of cayenne, because of my littles, and it was just perfect. It gave it an extra "something". I don't usually buy saffron, but I'm sure that would only kick it up another notch - as if that's possible?! Definitely a dish you can make for company and the rice/water ratio was perfect. Just seal your foil around the dish well and NO PEEKING until after it rests for the entire 10 minutes. You will find steamy, fluffy, individual grains of rice that you just need to fluff with a fork and serve.

Smothered Green Beans
This was delicious! Similar to green beans I've had at southern restaurants. I did cut the bacon to 4 slices because I just couldn't bring myself to use 6 and there was still enough bacon for every serving to have some in it. Next time I will use 3, just being health conscious. I used a bag of frozen petite string beans. My kids don't like veggies and ate these without complaining!

Corn Pudding V
Always a hit, someone always asks for the recipe! The only changes I make are to add 1 egg and a tablespoon of white sugar.
