Rice is something I always have in my pantry. We either use it to make biryani or it is accompanying one of many Indian curries we enjoy. We have always purchased Basmati rice. We have ventured out to other varieties of rice but Basmati has always been our favourite. Recently I got the opportunity to try Minute Rice®'s new line of Aromatic Rice. They have Basmati and Jasmine rice. I was excited to try both of them, especially the Jasmine rice as I've never cooked with it before.

I love to bake but one of the struggles I've had in the past was finding an affordable good quality alcohol-free vanilla extract. I've tried some vanilla powders that were white which immediately tells you that it's not real vanilla. I've tried some high end vanilla powder which was great but it's not readily available where I live and it's pretty pricey. Actual vanilla beans aren't a good alternative as they are expensive and I bake quite often. So I was very excited when Blossom & Bean started selling alcohol-free vanilla extract.
