  1. Just wondering why you added rice to the recipe? I know several other options a person could go with instead of rice. Love your blog and love the recipes in general.

    1. Cathy, I use rice because I like it and I am not sure I would like them without the rice. I would welcome any suggestions you have for alternatives and gladly give it a try. Thanks for reading my blog and I am glad you enjoyed it.
