Thank you to Hamilton Beach for sponsoring today’s post! All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.


Just a handful of weeks ago I couldn’t wait for the kids to be back in school! I had been counting down the days until I had some peace and quiet around the house to get work done and to just have some quiet me time. Now though activities are kicking in as well as homework for the kids and the tons of travel I have done in the last five weeks with the family (Hello, three out of five weeks of living in close quarters.) and I just have been struggling to get back into the school year routine. That means I have been on the hunt to find things to make dinner time easier on me because scrambling for a good breakfast, ordering in or picking up carry out is just cutting way to into the budget and causing too much stress. As a Hamilton Beach ambassador I was so happy to receive the Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker in stainless steel. It’s been a lifesaver for breakfast and dinner! One of the favorite things I’ve been making is my Rice Cooker Mexican Rice recipe.

Prior to this I have never owned a rice cooker but I had been looking to buy one. I had no idea what I had been missing out on!  The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker is so unbelievably versatile a good rice cooker could be. The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker allows me to have hot cereals ready for breakfast when the family gets up. I’m also able to make a variety of rice, pasta and grains. What truly sets this rice cooker apart though is that it comes with a steamer basket. So while your cooking your rice, pasta or grains you can also steam vegetables, seafood and chicken. To take this rice and hot cereal cooker to the next level Hamilton Beach made sure to include both a delay start and warmer feature.

The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker frees up time for you. The rice cooker does all of the work for you to make meals a hit all while freeing you up to be able to pack lunches in the morning, help with homework after school or run kids around to activities and sports.

My family loves Mexican food! We have it 1-2 times a week usually and one of my favorite sides to go with it is Mexican rice.
