  1. I enjoy your videos and I want to try some of your recipes.

    • Could this be done minus the instant rice? In other words, can I throw this dish together and then serve it over leftover cooked rice?

  2. These recipes are perfect for summer cooking. Simple, easy and delicious!

  3. I made this for dinner last night and it was a BIG hit, even my picky five year old cleaned her plate! Thank you so much for all the work you do on these. Also, to answer someone else’s question above, I didn’t use instant rice I just made regular white rice and mixed it in with the broccoli and soup, and it was still delicious.

    This is so so good! I also pre-cooked my rice since I didn’t have any instant in the pantry. Just mixed it in with everything right at the end and just let it warm up. I did add a little soy milk to thin out the soup (since I wasn’t adding the water for the rice). Delicious! Thank you so much for all these recipes!

  5. Super quick and easy and my family loves it. I have to double it so they can have leftovers for the next day.

  6. I’m going to have to remake this I think my cream of mushroom soup was old and I added to much water it left a funny taste in my mouth
