      This was delicious! The lemon is subtle but gives the rice a lovely taste. It's also easy and quick to make after working all day. This one is sure to be made time and again. Thanks for a great recipe, Bev!

      This is a very nice way to jazz up white rice, and simple to do. I made mine with chicken broth instead of water and skipped the cayenne, but it was still very tasty. Thanks, Bev.

      Can't say I really liked this recipe. The cayenne, the bay leaf, and the lemon all have very powerful flavors, and they didn't seem to blend very well.
