This dish is a rice pilaf, where the rice is toasted in oil with onion before liquid is added to finish the cooking. The addition of chopped pecans adds an additional nuttiness to the toasted rice. Pilafs are usually made with a meat-based stock like chicken; if you want a vegetarian version, you can easily substitute vegetable stock or water. We like to serve this alongside our turkey at Thanksgiving.

Greek Lemon Rice
This warm rice pilaf is tangy and earthy, thanks to the addition of lemon (juice and zest), shaved Greek olives, and fresh oregano. This dish would be a great side dish along with roasted or grilled chicken, lamb, pork, or fish. Plus, the pilaf is even better the next day after it's chilled overnight.Click here to see more Sweet and Tangy Citrus recipes.

This dish is simple to make, but it's all about having the right ingredients. I learned to make this during a cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and have recreated it stateside several times since — with varrying results. This time, I got it right, by searching out the most authentic Thai ingredients. It's possible to substitute in brown sugar and a different kind of rice, but it just won't yield the same results. To get the most out of this delicious dessert, visit a Thai grocery store in your area to make sure you are getting the right products.

Horchata Rice Pudding
OK, so horchata rice pudding is pretty much like ordinary rice pudding, but a touch more cinnamon-y and still delicious. In the middle of a sweltering, hot summer in Mexico, horchata is often the beverage of choice. This is just another way of serving it, as a dessert.
