Fairy Godmother Rice

Deb Crane


I found this recipe online. The author is Ryan Schwartz. He says the name of this dish is because they called his Grandfathers second wife Fairy Godmother. He said that she made this for them, and loved her ever since. :) It is super easy and a great dish to bring to a pot luck! Inexpensive and super yummy!
