BENTON HARBOR, MI (Need date, 2010) - More than 90 years after introducing its legendary stand mixer in 1919, KitchenAid now offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen, including a collection of premium blenders that utilize a powerful motor and innovative blade design to make short work of everything from crushing ice to making smoothies. The KitchenAid 3-speed blender, a recent addition to the brand’s blender collection (model KSB354) features a generous 40 ounce glass jar, three speeds (low, medium and high) and simple, intuitive controls.

“Our research showed us that many consumers use their blenders primarily for smoothies and mixed drinks,” notes Deb O’Connor, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. “Not only have we added a smoothie button to this model but we’re offering home cooks additional features not usually found in blenders at this price.” With just one push of the Smoothie button, ingredients are quickly blended at an optimal speed to crush ice and blend fruits, nuts and other ingredients together for a perfect smoothie without residual ice or fruit chunks. A Chop Ice setting crushes cubes of ice into a snowy powder in seconds, perfect for using in mixed drinks and

cocktails. The generous 40-ounce glass jar creates enough drinks for company and a seamless control pad is easy to wipe clean. For added safety, a locking collar and blade assembly prevents the blade from spinning if the jar is not attached.

Available in black, white or red, the suggested retail price on the 3-speed blenders is $79.99. The following recipe illustrates the versatility of the blender and how this tool helps to easily create fresh and delicious results.

Preparing your waffle batter with the blender gives the waffles a very light, airy texture. Not to mention, it makes clean up a snap since you use the same container to mix and pour. The addition of the cornmeal to the waffle batter gives these light waffles a little bit of crunch. Serve with syrup, blueberry jam or a nice fruit compote.

Pour about ¼ cup in hot waffle iron until waffles are golden brown.

Over 90 years later, the KitchenAid brand now offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars.

Between dropping the kids off at school, paying bills, doing laundry and all those other errands you do, who has time to cook nutritious meals? Debbie Jaramillo, test kitchen manager for Riviana Foods Inc., says “if your pantry is stocked with even a small list of basic foods, like rice, you can open your cupboard anytime and come up with a delicious dinner at a moment’s notice.” Here, Jaramillo offers tips for everyday meals that are good, good for your, easy on the budget and won’t compromise flavor. 1. No time to cook healthy? Minute® Rice offers convenience in the kitchen without sacrificing nutrition. “It contains no trans fats, saturated fats, cholesterol, added sodium or sugar and it’s gluten free,” says Jaramillo. Minute® Rice is enriched and contains the same nutrition as regular longer cooking white rice. 2. Think brown rice takes too long to cook? Make the switch to Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice, a 100% whole grain food, which has the same nutritional values as longer cooking brown rice but takes just 10 minutes, one-fourth the time to prepare. “If you eat one cup of cooked Minute® Whole Grain Brown Rice, you will have eaten two-thirds of the recommended daily servings of whole grains,” says Jaramillo. 3. For quick meals, take advantage of packaged salads and vegetables, deli meats, frozen

shrimp, ground turkey, rotisserie chicken and other convenient food products that can easily convert a bowl of rice into a one-dish meal. A few quick “tips” include add fruits, nuts and honey to hot cooked rice to start the day off right; combine cooked rice with black beans, choppedtomato, fresh cilantro, cooked diced chicken and a squeeze of lime juice for a zesty salad; or make a southwest burrito by mixing hot cooked rice, salsa, diced cooked chicken, cheddar cheese and sour cream. When it comes to rice, you are limited only by your imagination,” says Jaramillo.

4. When lunch hour is a lunch minute, try Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. It’s ready after only one minute in the microwave and is perfectly cooked every time. Packaged in portable single-serve cups, the product is fully cooked, there is nothing to add and can be eaten straight from the cup. It’s great for working people brownbagging their lunch or eating on the go. Add in a few key ingredients and you have a quick, easy, nutritious and satisfying main-dish meal. 5. Got leftovers? Rice is the perfect platform for transforming leftover chicken, steak or pork into a quick, easy, one-dish meal in minutes. For more tips on quick nutritional meals using Minute® Rice, visit Based in Houston, Texas, Riviana Foods Inc. is one of the largest processors, marketers and distributors of branded and private label rice products in the United States. Its principal brands include Mahatma®, Carolina®, Success®, Minute® and Gourmet House®.
