I needed this for a base recipe... trying to replicate the rice pilaf we had as a side at Holiday Acres Resort in Rhinelander wisconsin. I use to be a waitress there and I would mow down on this with fresh squeezed lemon when i'd get hungry.... So to make this more like holiday acres from the recipe i remember , I added chopped celery along with the onions to the butter and olive oil. I added Thyme to the broth while boiling it... I use threw two whole sprigs in there. It was nice to use them from Thanksgiving... and they still look pretty good... just a little dried up. I'm using a slow cooker because I need the oven for the fish I'm going to make tonight. So far its smelling pretty good. I am having a hard time rating this because of the changes i've made... I couldn't find any other rice pilaf with celery added to it. I Guess i can't post this "review" without rating it.. I use my reviews for references when i come back to make the recipe again...
