The days are starting to get more comfortable and the nights are starting to require a jacket to stay outside after sunset, the kids are going back to school and I have visions of falling leaves and pumpkins already dancing in my head, that can only mean one thing—fall is coming—quickly!  Fall is by far my favorite time of year and I love it for so many reasons, but one of the biggest is because of all of the yummy fall recipes that I can finally cook after a long summer of trying not to turn on the oven—and I can’t wait!


With the kiddos heading back to school, I’ll definitely have a little more time to put into my favorite recipes, but I’ll still without a doubt take some help from semi-homemade staples like Success boil-in-bag rice—it is one ingredient that I always have on hand for quick dinners.  Success has long been my go-to brand for rice and I love the convenience of their boil-in-bag rice and with their new Thai Jasmine Rice, the only boil-in-bag rice currently available in this variety, I can experiment till my hearts content!

Serving up exotic foods at your dinner table is a fun way to experience another culture and replace weekly staples that have become a little boring.
