Brazilian White Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 410
White rice is the main side dish made in Brazil. This is the way my mom would make it and taught my sister and I. What makes this so different is that we fry it in oil with minced onion and garlic before adding water. You can also use part water, part chicken broth. The secret is to not let it overcook because it should come out loose and not sticky.

Red Chard and Caramelized Onions

Rating: 4.5 stars 171
This dish is good hot or at room temperature. I serve it as a side when the kids want mac and cheese for dinner. They do not eat it, but it makes me feel grown-up. It is very tasty.

Seasoned Roasted Root Vegetables

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
I wanted a vegetable medley with root vegetables good for the fall. I took three recipes and changed them up to get the following recipe. This recipe is good when reheated in the microwave, or I have frozen some and served them later.

Loaded Cauliflower

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Rating: 4 stars 492
Moist roasted chicken gets the royal treatment with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar and creamy risotto. You may choose to roast your own chicken or purchase a rotisserie chicken from a grocery store. A little grated cheese such as Parmesan or Pecorino Romano before serving is also a nice touch.

Rating: 4 stars 22
