My Favorite Products for the Holidays #ad #SealsForGood

As you know the holidays are really around the corner and we have to have on hand good quality products to ensure that we present to our friends and family a delicious dessert, bread or meal.

I love to use 100% Real California Milk products because they are the best quality we can have.

The Real California Milk Seal isn’t just another logo. It represents the commitment by California dairy farm families to producing quality milk that goes into the dairy products families need. To demonstrate this dedication to nourishing families and communities, Real California Milk is leading an initiative called Seals for Good. The campaign has been going on since September as we’ve been supporting families affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Florida and Texas. But now, we are expanding the campaign to help those in our own backyard affected by the wildfires.

Real California Milk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive every time a user shares a photo of our Real California Milk seal on social using the hashtag #SealsforGood (up to $10k in CA and $20k in TX/FL).

For many children and families who face hunger, even basic staples like milk may be missing. The Great American Milk Drive, in partnership with Feeding America, has delivered more than 1 million gallons of milk to food banks across the country since 2014 to help families get the nutrients they need.

I’m always recommending to my friends different and better products they can add to their baked goods and here I want to show you my favorites

Grated Cheese
Butter
Cream
Cheese
Flavored Cream

Just remember to look for the Real California Milk Seal.

Cheesy Breakfast Biscuits #SealsForGood #ad

This is one of my favorite pieces of bread to make for breakfast the next day and they are so easy and so full of flavor. They are great for an easy low-key Sunday brunch or if you are having a family get together they are the perfect complement to any plate. I make mine with Real California Milk Cheese and this gives me the security that I’m using a good quality cheese.

Now let me tell you that by buying Real California Milk products you have to make sure to look for the Real California Seal, especially because we are working hard to help does in need right now. Spread some California love to families in need affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Snap a pic of the Real California Milk Seal, share it using #SealsForGood, and @RealCaliforniaMilk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive (up to $20k) to help families in Texas and Florida. No purchase necessary. Post now ‘til 12/31.

This is a great way to help those that need us so much right now, and this recipe is a great excuse to get you a push to start, not only because we all need a delicious breakfast but also they are so easy to make that will only take you no more than 45 minutes.

Tuna Quesadillas #SundaySupper

 

First let me tell you that making school lunches is something that I have to do on a regular basis, and I always try to come out with something inventing and different, not only because my girls love a good homemade lunch at school but also because there is nothing more satisfying to me that having a great balanced meal for them.

And this is just one of the reasons to why I love so much this theme today. When I was making my meal plan for the first 2 months of school, yes I know is still early but I like to be prepare, I came out with this different and inventive quesadilla, that I actually made and let the girls try to see if this would be a good option for them.

And let me tell you it was a great idea, they love it so much that of course, I have to make it before school again. But to be honest I don’t mind, it makes me happier than this. This quesadilla is a great hot lunch option, not only because is easy to make, you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and it only takes 10 minutes if your time in the morning.
So, don’t worry about making a hot lunch for the kiddos this school year because we have it cover.

Celebrating with Flavors and Traditions #ad #EstrellaJalisco

We love to celebrate any moment we can and we as a family don’t actually need a specific celebration day to recreate delicious meals from our childhood. And one of the reasons why is because we can just grab a few ingredients and a great and tasty beer like Estrella Jalisco and make a completed book of great memories.

And what a great way to involve the hold family if is not by making some Carne Asda Tacos, yes an afternoon of grilling, some fruits, and a cold drink is all you need to create traditions that can last forever.

And this is one of the reasons why I love Estrella Jalisco Beer because it’s honest, humble, proud and personal and this are attributes we can all relate to, we are as a family very close and we can all be together in one place because we can get together anytime we want with the help of technology.

You don’t need lots of food to make this a memorable day with some corn tortillas, carne asada, various or just one kind of fruit and some refreshing drinks like Estella Jalisco, the afternoon can be as special as any other at my grandmother’s yard, you know those last minute parties just because somebody has beer and meat already in the fridge.

Those are the kind of celebrations I’m talking about, the ones that don’t need a special day on the calendar and are just there to help us remember that we need one an other no mater what time of the day it is.

These are my favorite traditions and the ones I’m trying really hard to pass onto my kids, because at the end these are the most important ones, and the ones we are always going to cherish.

If you want to know more stories and traditions go to Estrella Jalisco and follow them also on Facebook and Instagram.

The New Samsung Chef Collection is here #AD

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Samsung. The opinions and text are all mine.

I was invited to see the New Samsung’s Chef Collection line. And let me tell you something it is amazing! What I like the most is the Samsung is bringing the technology world to our kitchens. Seeing the appliances work is a hold other thing and I’m so thankful because I had the chance to meet the top Chef Christopher Kostow. Samsung is the fastest growing appliance brand in America and is launching its new Chef Collection line of premium built-in appliances. A combination of design, connectivity, and performance. Ok, now my favorite part.

The new first-ever 42” Built-in Refrigerator in a 4-Door Flex configuration, with a convenient FlexZone™ compartment that can easily go from fridge to freezer at the touch of a button. I was like WOW! this is the most incredible appliance I have ever seen, the best part is that it has Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity so now you can check from the app in  your phone at any time if the grocery list did not make it.

The Samsung Chef Collection Wall Oven is the best you ever have, beautiful design, easier to install and great for a modern look in your kitchen and of course because they think of everything is flush mounted, that means that it integrates with the cabinets. And of course, it has Wifi.

the Samsung Chef Collection Cooktop is the one thing I was really in love with, the cast iron grills, the design and it has a heat sensing technology with is great because the fan automatically turns on when it is too hot.

Last but no least, let’s talk about the Dishwasher, this amazing Samsung Chef Collection Dishwasher has an improving drying of 35%, if you use the app you can program it so you don’t have to think about coming home to dirty dishes and when it finishes the cycle the door pops up open.

Ok, I know what are you thinking. I want them all!!! Don’t worry me too, but I invite you to check more info here Samsung Chef Collection, and let me know wich is your favorite one and why.

Michelada Tradicional y Tostadas Rápidas #MyMicheladaMatch #ad #collectivebias

Esta campaña ha sido compensada por Collective Bias y su anunciante. Todas las opiniones son solo mias. Este contenido está diseñado para personas mayores de 21 años. #MyMicheladaMatch

Definitivamente el verano es la época perfecta para pasar mucho tiempo con amigos y familia, y cuando decidimos irnos de picnic hay que  acompañar la comida con una buena Michelada.

Y hoy quiero compartirles la receta tradicional que mi papá hacía. Era y es la preferida de toda la familia. Es refrescante y tiene un sabor único, sobre todo porque él siempre utilizaba como ingrediente secreto (bueno, no tan secreto en realidad) Clamato, y en su sabor original es el mejor.

Como saben hay muchas recetas y formas de hacer una buena Michelada, pero nada como esta que tiene los sabores que a mí en lo personal me encantan. Aún recuerdo la primera vez que tome la Michelada, pensé que no me iba a gustar, pero la verdad es que no la cambio por nada ahora.

Como ven esta receta es deliciosa y sencilla, y por eso les recomiendo ir a su Walmart local para encontrar todos los ingredientes necesarios, no teman para nada, incluso para las tostadas rápidas, cada uno de los ingredientes se encuentran ahí.

Huy y usando estas ideas ustedes pueden unirse a la celebración del 12 de julio, que es el Día Nacional de la Michelada, ven no necesitan excusas para hacer una buena Michelada y disfrutar con sus amigos y familia.  Lo único que necesitan es un vaso bien frío, algunos ingredientes y por supuesto Clamato Original, el cual es la clave del sabor de la Michelada. Pueden encontrar este producto en el pasillo de los jugos.

Sin dejar de lado el resto de nuestro menú, les quiero recomendar esta super fácil Tostada.  Pueden conseguir todos los ingredientes en su Walmart local y lo mejor de todo es que pueden armarla sin ninguna complicación.

Déjeme saber en un comentario cual es su receta de Michelada favorita. Te invito a que entres a My Michelada website para mas ideas.

Why we love to #SnackBrighter with Outshine Bars #sponsored

With the final days of school coming really fast I’m always looking for healthy snack alternatives for my girls. And let me tell you here in San Diego the weather is starting to get warmer and warmer every day. So when I’m looking for a refreshing, healthy and delicious alternative snack I know that Outshine Bars are a great option.

So after school is very typical that we go to our local grocery store to buy some of the different flavors that Outshine Bars have and we love them all, my husband enjoys the yogurt bars and my girls are a big fan of the fruity flavors, my favorite is pineapple, but sometimes coconut just hit the spot.

Okay, here are a few recommendations for those afterschool afternoons.

1- Take advantage of the long afternoons. Bring your kids outside, and enjoy the wonderful weather. This will help them better to deal with homework and chores.

2- Have some Outshine Bars on hand. Because Fruit Bars are made with real fruit or fruit juice and No GMO ingredients.

3- Make it at leat once a week a special fun day. Choose a day of the week that you feel is great for a game, the pool, the park, snacks and of course laugh and happiness.

You can make the last days of schools the best ones ever, and the only thing you need is just the perfect and healthy snack. Outshine Bars are the perfect treat everybody love.

Now go and check out their Instagram to see more creative ways to enjoy Outshine Bars.
