    Really tired of the ungrateful complainers. Don't use the recipe or improvise. Not everyone is a health freak and it is not all about you. You could always go PAY for your weight support. Do you pay your bills? I am so grateful for this site. I've lost 20 lbs, where I was never able to before. - 2/13/13

    Its a great recipee for quick broccoli rice. And its tasty. I use Uncle Ben's brown rice and a little cream of chicken soup,low fat cheddar, mustard and a little dash of nutmeg to make almost scratch broccoli rice. - 2/13/13

    I have these ingredients on my list. this looks good to me

    I also have to add that I agree with LOVEDBY2. These recipes are what they are - just recipes. You you don't want to make it, don't. Sparks does not have to give us recipe ideas, they choose to. - 2/13/13
