  1. You know, making rice on the stovetop has become somewhat of a lost art. Thank you for profiling the process here, especially since it looks so flavorful. Thanks for participating this week.

  2. Your rice looks and sounds sooo good, Kathya. I hadn’t thought to use cilantro in rice but I am looking forward to giving it a try!
