“I saw a recipe similar to this in an Uncle Ben's ad some years ago. I never kept the ad, just started making this recipe. Although the seasoning is different, don't let it scare you. Everyone that I have ever made these for loves them, including my husband who doesn't like rice. Try them once. I make it without the craisins but they were in the original recipe.”
