Yum! Great blend of flavors and came out perfectly cooked. I made all as directed apart from using some fresh chives instead of the parsley.

This was very good! I've never had rice with raisins, but it was really tasty! That and the cinnamon added a subtle sweetness to the rice. A nice change of pace from the usual rice pilaf. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT7 for the Skim Into Africa Challenge for the Vivacious Violets.

Outstanding, & that's probably because of the inclusion of raisins & cinnamon ~ Whatever, this is a great rice pilaf, & definitely something I'll make again & again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Family Picks part of ZWT6]

Delicious side dish! I especially loved the sweetness from the raisins and cinnamon in this dish. I used only 1/4 tsp of turmeric, and that was plenty for me, but otherwise made as stated. Thanks Paula! Made for ZWT6.

What a great pilaf Paula. I loved this simple to make dish. It was full of flavor. Quick and very easy to make. It was the perfect accompaniment for my meal. I served it with pork tenderloin, hush puppies and roasted carrotes. It blended perfectly with all the other flavors. I will definitely make this again. Made for my sweet Pac Girl. :)

For Zaar World Tour 5 This is really nice. I love raisins in rice so this was a definite plus for me. I couldn't have had a better rice pilaf!

I've used brown, jasmine and basmati rice, with and without chicken stock and I've loved it every way *my fav is as the recipe states*. I get great compliments about it when I bring it for lunch because of the smell. Love it and make it all the time

This was wonderful. Not spicy at all, but nicely spiced with the cinnamon and sweet from the raisins. I subbed a couple of shallots for the onion and left out the parsley (didn't have any) but other than than made it according to the recipe. Yummmy, thank you!

This is fabulous! I used long grain brown rice and omitted the parsley.
