My wife-to-be doesn't really like rice. I am a big fan of rice. What are some good recipes to help someone realize the wonders of rice?
She likes fried rice and sticky rice, but that's about it. I like pretty much any rice dish that there is. How do we bridge the gap?
Give me some recipes! Help me convert my future wife to a lover of rice!

UMass Amherst - between '90-'94 - People's Market: I used to get a plate of rice and beans for lunch almost every day for a couple of years from People's and I am CRAVING that exact dish hardcore. I remember brown rice, red wine vinegar as a condiment - but what type of beans and what was in them, if anything? IIRC, it was like $1.00. [more inside]

Is there a recipe for good, easy Mexican rice? Good here equals strong tomato flavor, peas and carrots (I'm not interested in strict authenticity). Bonus points if I can just dump the ingredients in my rice cooker and be done with it. [more inside]

Slow cooker/rice cooker question. I have a standard Cuisinart rice cooker and I've heard it said that you can cook other things in it as well, so my question is, can I use it as a slow cooker, in other words, will any slow cooker recipes turn out just as well in a rice cooker? If so, please share them with me! [more inside]

Steamed Rice with what? I'd like to use my rice cooker more often. I'm looking for recipes that take five to ten minutes that I can add / pour over / serve next to my steamed rice. Bonus: What are some things I can add to the rice cooker as the rice is being cooked to make it a one pot meal?

I have never liked the taste of brown rice, but I would like to try to develop a taste for it, since it is so good for you. Is there something that I can add to the rice to make it taste different (and possibly better?) Other suggestions for cooking or preparing the rice, besides the standard are appreciated.
