Sprinkling parmesan cheese is easy to do once it's cooked. Or another cheese favorite.
My kids loved 'dirty rice' so when I bought whole poultry, I cooked the liver, chopped it into small tiny pieces and then froze it for when I wanted to make dirty rice. It's pretty much just add it to the rice while it's cooking.
Using broth instead of water adds flavor easily.
Don't overlook trying out different types of rice -- medium grain almost has a sweetness of its own. Medium grain brown rice is really delicious to me on its own. I hate Uncle Ben's. It tastes like cardboard to me.
