    I love the flavor of this - it's very nutty and slightly sweet from the Amaretto. It worked well with spicy shrimp. I'm glad to have this in my cookbooks, I will be making this again.

    This was so easily prepared and I enjoyed the delicate nutty flavour. We eat a lot of rice and its always good to find a new twist on an old favourite!<br/><br/>Thank you, Vicky, this was made in loving memory, gone too soon, always missed.

    Very good! I thought the almond flavor would be overpowering, so I used less almond extract, and it was perfect.

    Loved it! I didn't have any already cooked rice so after the almonds were sauteed, I sauteed the dry rice a little, then cooked the rice with the almond liqueur. Next time I think I'll double the amount of liqueur for even more flavor. Thanks for a lovely recipe Vicky!

Hello! I am a resident of WA state, and I must say I love it here.... especially where coffee flows so freely! I live with my SO, Mark, and he has lived here since 2001 (originally from San Diego, CA). We live a quiet life and enjoy just about anything outdoors. I love to travel... sometimes just to pick a spot on the map and make a weekend out of it. Since I have been here, some of my favorite places to visit are Oregon and Washington (Cle Elum, Leavenworth, Spokane, Bonney Lake, Maple Valley, Issaquah, etc). My favorite place in Seattle is Pike Place Market, even though I don't get there often. And, Mt. Rainier is a scene I often photograph. <img src="http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u158/VickyJ_photo/rainier.jpg"> Originally, I am from Jamestown, NY home of <img src="http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/CLASS/130-120~Lucille-Ball-Posters.jpg"><img src="http://maioush.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/lucille-ball-8553.jpg"> She is loved by all that live there and the surrounding areas! Another famous person that is from the area is Natalie Merchant and former lead singer of the 10,000 Maniacs (rock band). <img src="http://photo.sing365.com/music/picture.nsf/Natalie-Merchant-photo/48256C71003578A248256926002F4F75/$file/natalie.jpg"> I think that is about it for famous people. There was a question posted in one of the forums about who I would love to have for dinner, right now. I answered God, Jesus, my mom, Grandma Lundin, Grandpa Lundin and Aunt Sig. They are my role models in life. Each has molded me into the person I am now. My fondest memories are spending Thanksgiving and Christmas-time at my Grandma's house, and the whole family around. SO MUCH good food! I lived in that small city my whole life and graduated from high school just outside of town. I have a strong restaurant background.. everything from Pizza Hut to a local italian restaurant called Vullo's. It seems, though, I have a passion for machining technology, even though I didn't go to school for that. I grew up with a local manufacturer of machine/tooling systems soldering/wiring circuit bds and assembling whole systems. That wasn't enough for me so, I went to college and obtained my AAS in Electrical Technology. The same company hired me back to work in their service dept as a technician. I had planned to go further to become an electromechanical engineer for the company, but I was laid off. I have been out of it so long, I would probably have to start over from scratch.. .that is the problem with electronics/technology.
