EmilyA light twist to rice. 
KatieThis had great potential, but the rice was no where near done with the time stated. Next time, I will have to cook the rice according the the rice package.********** 
rjthis was nice and different 
Monicaused my rice cooker for this so just added all ingredients except half/half and cooked. When done, I tossed with the half/half and lemon juice

Davidleft out the cream made it better

Chaddidn't work out 
ChristineShould have read the comments or listened to my instincts -- both told me it wasn't enough liquid to fully cook the rice. I added a bit more water and let it cook for an additional 10 minutes to get it done. Otherwise, quite yummy.**********Simple
GracieMy DH's favorite of the night. I cooked the rice in the rice cooker with a 2 to 1 ratio of broth to rice. I let it cook and then added everything else in. I didn't follow the proportions in the recipe.*****
