I use brown rice, as we prefer the flavor. This is a good side dish, attractive, easy.; the dill and ranch is great together.

Very good. I used 2 C. of rice & 2 cup of water. It made LeRoy & I 3 meals.

First I made my white rice in a rice cooker, then followed the directions ;D

Janice... I also use Microsoft's Word... It's GETTING full!

On the ranch salad dressing is that the bottle salad dressing or the dry mix!

Very good; love the addition of dressing; eat rice often, and this will be great recipe.

Great recipe, so yummy :) Thank You ! also, in reference to S48tal 8171427... if you dont have colored ink, but still want the recipe to look neat and type written, try to cut and paste it to a blank page in your word processing program, then change all the text to black, when you go to print it, all the words will be in black so they will all print out ! simple easy solution.... hope it works for you ! Sincerely, Jan

Mr. Food; thank you again for all your tasty recipes! I will try this one soon. And I know this is a bit late, but in reference to (Fay Cushwa/comment dated 12/17/10) ............. if the word underlined in the recipe doesn't print out for you, perhaps you don't have "colored ink" in your printer, or it needs replaced. I print the word in myself with a ink pen. Just keep recipe you printed off the computer opened to the recipe, and scan down where words are not on your printed page ........... then fill them in. Hope this helps you. Sincerely, "little ole' Ohio cook," Sherry

Are we to cover the rice while it is simmering?

I would think you would cover pot, When I make rice of any kind I always cover and put on simmier. So if I make this recipe I will cover.

I would suggest following the package instructions for cooking the rice. Rice requires steam to cook and must be covered. Cover and do not lift the lid at any time during the 20 minutes or you'll get undercooked rice.

Thank you for all the recipes that I have tried,but if there is a line under a word, it wont print. I have never been disapointed, and thank you for all the joy you have given to me. Fay
