Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved broccoli. Yep. I was that strange vegetable loving child you’ve heard about. Now that I’m grown I still love broccoli but I like to serve it differently. Caramelized Broccoli with Mushrooms is a great way to get the broccoli I love with even more flavor!

Rice is a great side dish for so many meals but plain white rice is boring! The terrific thing about rice is it can get all gussied up and fit right in with darned near anything! When I make Asian dishes or if I’m making something that has that tropical vibe I make my Pineapple Ginger Rice.

There are certain recipes that you may want sticky rice. Asian fare usually demands it. If you’re eating with chopsticks (or should be) you need to have nice, sticky rice. But there are times that having rice turn out sticky is the last thing you want! I’ve struggled with ending up with sticky, clumped up rice all my adult life. Yeah, it’s not the biggest problem in the world but it can be really frustrating! But happy days are here! I’ve learned the trick to keep rice from getting sticky!
Keep Rice from Getting Sticky
A little over 30 years ago I came up with this recipe and its name for two reasons. Pete had decided he hated vegetables, after months of eating real (not baby food) veggies. I had to come up with a way to get him to eat some vegetable and he had begun toddling around the house singing “Give Peace a Chance” except he sang peas instead of peace. Thus, Give Peas a Chance was born!
C’mon Everybody! Give Peas a Chance!
