Arguably, one of the worst parts about adulthood is figuring out what to cook for a meal for the rest of your life. When you think about it, it’s a pretty daunting task. There’s only so many recipes and ways to make your favorite meals unique or less time consuming.

That’s where me, Kroger, and Success Quinoa come into play. After getting a couple produce items (fresh produce is always important), head to the rice aisle. That’s where you’ll find Success Quinoa. Save now, AND get the recipe.

Grab a couple of boxes because quinoa is a necessary pantry staple for everyone. Go one or two aisles over, and retrieve a couple of canned goods. We love Kroger because of the competitive prices they offer AND the products they store.

Success® is the easiest way to cook quinoa and rice to perfection every time. Even better is the lack of clean up involved. With soon to be 2 young kids running around, I need every break from mess-clean up as I can get! When you can simultaneously take ludacris demands from a threenager and NOT F up dinner, that’s what I call #cookingwithsuccess. It tastes great and makes everything quick, easy, and convenient! You’ll never have to sacrifice on quality again. Success is in the bag®!

They also have other convenient, boil-in-bag products such as; Jasmine, Basmati, and Brown and White Rice. Check out the recipe for this Miso Mushroom Rice Bowl, which includes Success Jasmine Rice.
