Mushroom-Orange Rice

I’ll be honest, I love Martha Stewart.  I subscribe to her Living magazine, and constantly look through her website for recipes (usually savory), but for some reason, a lot of her dessert recipes don’t work!  I have tried a couple of cupcake recipes, and they have come out almost unedible.  Has this happened to you?  I know, she’s Martha and I’m… me.  But I have asked around and I know I’m not alone!.  What is it with those recipes?

I may not be a Cordon Bleu Chef, but I can mix a cupcake batter!  I guess it will be one of those things that shall always remain a mistery.

However, and now that I have gotten that off my chest, I have tried to make several of her savory recipes and those have turned out well. And one of them is this rice recipe, which is absolutely delicious.  I almost ate the whole thing myself. (I made half a recipe for Mariano and I).
