"I loved finding a rice recipe for the crock pot that can cook by itself and then be served at dinner time with some quickly grilled or baked chicken or fish. It is from BHG Slow Cooker Recipes."

    I have sinced tried this recipe again with the added changes that were made in the water. It was FANTASTIC! My family really loved it. I used dried mushrooms since I can get a large container at my whole sale store. This way I have mushrooms on hand all the time.The only other change I made was to add Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup. This will be a keeper now. Thanks for the posting.

    I still found the texture a bit gummy. I used the auto setting on my crockpot and it was done when I checked it in 6 hours (maybe overdone). I also think that I just did not care for the "creamy" texture given by the canned soup and sour cream -- personal preference. The seasonings were very good.

    I love the ease of this recipe, but thought that the texture of the rice was a bit gummy. I am not sure if it is the recipe or just the way that rice turns out when slow cooked. The flavors were good, tasted like stuffing. I liked that I could use brown and wild rice and that there were some veggies in there. Opted not to add the raisins or the sour cream at the end. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I think you are absolutely right that there is way too much water and I have edited the recipe to read 3 cups water. With all the vegetables and the soup, that should be all that's necessary. Sorry the recipe was not accurate!


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
