  1. I have a similar recipe that calls for golden raisins. I made this recipe with regular raisins as directed & if I ever make this recipe again I will definitely use golden raisins. Take my word for it, this will taste so much better if you use golden raisins.
  2. I really liked this recipe. I love just about most rice dishes but love those that have more flavor and this one delivers that. The only change I made (I just couldn't help myself) is that I added about 3 cloves of crushed garlic and saute that with the onions since that is what I - Read more ...
  3. Husband absolutely loved this recipe. It was easy goof-proof and I had all the ingredients on hand. Worked super well with roast chicken dinner. I can see where the "base" of this recipe could support multiple variations of ingredients--really nice addition to plain white rice. I liked it just not a big fan of dried - Read more ...
  4. I wanted rice with my bourbon salmon and this was perfect. Simple with a great flavor. Thanks Annette
  5. This was really delicious! I even left out the onion because I ran out but it was still good. I will make it as directed next time. We ate with Egyptian Moussaka and it was perfect. Thanks for the recipe.
  6. I made this twice so far and liked it. For some reason I feeled like maybe it might be missing a little something but overall a nice side dish. I think the amount of onion can be cut down slightly and I might try this next time.
  7. For something so simple this was really nice! I replaced the onion with a very small amount of onion powder left out the salt and pepper and next time would slightly reduce the amount of butter as well. This recipe made a great side dish for Honey Grilled Fish and it would probably go well - Read more ...
  8. This is the best rice dish I've ever had! I love the combination of flavors! A great dish for company.
  9. The family loved this rice recipe. I caramelized the onions a bit which gave the flavor a little extra sweetness. The almonds were a great additional for texture!
  10. This was absolutely delicious and easy! I used a little more butter than called for by accident and I think it made it even better! I toasted the almonds and have also made this with wild rice and it tasted just as great! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe.
