In spite of the fact that it’s still winter and has, for the past week, been raining nonstop, I just can’t get the excitement about summer out of my mind. Oddly enough, I already know I’ll complain about the incessant heat come June, but I’m looking forward to it all the same
One of my favorite parts of summer is the chance to do incredibly low-key entertaining. Throwing everything on the grill, and then finishing with a nice cool…

When you look at this plate, what do you think the common link is between these foods? It might surprise you
It’s our Rice Bran Oil.
Everything on this gorgeous plate was cooked in Rice Bran Oil. When we originally developed this oil, we knew it was optimal for frying. It’s high smoke point of 490 degrees made food crispy without burning, and the fried food retained less oil than traditional cooking oils.

I feel the need to start this post with my very honest opinion: this may very well be the absolute best recipe I’ve ever made for Riceland. Maybe even the best recipe I’ve ever made, period

Reminiscent of a Spanish paella or a Creole jambalaya, this Chicken, Sausage, Shrimp, Artichoke and Rice Skillet Dinner can be on your table in 30-45 minutes.

If possible, use the andouille since it deepens the flavor profile of the dish. However, any combination of these meats will still make a delicious dish for your family
Who doesn’t…
