    Altered ingredient amounts. For something so simple, this was really nice! I replaced the onion with a very small amount of onion powder, left out the salt and pepper, and next time would slightly reduce the amount of butter as well. This recipe made a great side dish for Honey Grilled Fish, and it would probably go well with any other flavourful fish as well. I didn't personally care for the taste of the raisins, but they look beautiful and are easy enough for picky eaters to avoid :-)  -  29 Sep 2008

    Used different ingredients. Very good rice recipe. I think it would be better with wild rice instead of white. I toasted the almonds and used dried cranberries instead of raisins. Thanks.  -  29 Sep 2008
