Classic Rice Pilaf
Followed the recipe almost exactly ( used only evoo as suggested by one review, added a chicken bouillon cube and 2 cups water and vegetable broth to get the full 3 cups),aside from those changes everything was exact. There might be misuse with the rice that I used, but it took forever to cook. It became mushy by the time I decided to move it to pan and cook it with more veggie broth. I wasn't too much a fan of the flavor, but my mom thought it was delicious. I don't think I'd make it again, even with with proper rice though.

White and Wild Rice Pilaf
This dish was amazing. I took the advice of others and added two chicken bouillon cubes. It made it a bit salty, but the flavor was absolutely delicious. My family has a similar recipe for thanksgiving that is a wild rice stuffing, made in a very similar fashion, but this is a much cheaper method. Will definitely be making this pretty often. Super easy!
