I thought this turned out well. The ingredient proportions are different from the way I usually bake brown rice, but it turned out really moist. I decided to omit the raisins because I was out of regular, and I didn't substitute golden because my husband doesn't much like fruit in his dinner anyway.

Nice way to kick up a rice dish. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins, and the flavors were wonderful. Thanks for a keeper!
