She CooksA surprising hit with the boys.***** 
GuestHow To Cook Brown Rice# Soak 1 cup of brown rice for 1 hour and drain.# Add the rice to a medium-sized saceupan and cook, uncovered, on medium-high heat until the rice is dry (2 3 minutes). Stir in a small amount of salt if desired.# While dry cooking the rice, bring a kettle of water to a boil. Add 2 1/4 2 1/2 cups boiling water to the rice and wait for the water to return to a full boil.# When the water has returned to a full boil, turn the heat down to medium-low (a range setting of about 3). Cover and cook the rice until the water is fully absorbed (about 40 minutes). Do not stir the rice. 5. Remove the rice from the heat, and let sit, still covered, for at least 10 minutes. 6. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.What You Need: * Brown rice * A medium-sized saceupan, with lid********** 
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.*****
