This Armenian Pilaf (Rice Pilaf) is an Arnold family favorite.

It is easy to make and goes with most of anything but our family really likes it when I make it with BBQ chicken.  The grandkid’s eyes light up when they find out we are making rice pilaf. Plus, Grandpa, that’s me, likes it the second, third and fourth time when I heat it up from the refrigerator!

  • 1/3 of 1 stick of butter
  • ½ cup thin raw egg noodles crushed up
  • 1 cup non-instant rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp salt

Melt butter in sauce pan, and add noodles.

Brown noodles in butter stirring so it doesn’t burn, just brown.

Add rice to noodles and mix. Add broth and salt and cover. Cook over

Low heat. Uncover after 15-20 minutes. Good served with chicken or pork


My favorite restaurant is Barresi’s Italian Restaurant located in their original home in the heart of Deer Park/Madiera.

It is a toss-up as to which I enjoy more – the lasagna or the lobster cardinal!  All made from scratch and mouthwatering.


Other than the satisfaction of helping folks get through the maze of Medicare options I am now the grandfather of 5 fabulous grandchildren ranging from 4 to 9 years old. Playing Old Maid, going to the park, attending supporting events, deciding who gets to ride in Grandpa’s car this time, being the Bear as I chase them around the house, and oh the fun we have every day!
