Tilapia al Horno #SummerVino #ad #CollectiveBias

Una de las cosas que mas me encanta es pasar tiempo con mi familia, cocinar algo rico y disfrutar de un buen vino. No hay nada que me guste mas que invitarlos a que disfruten de una tarde llena de calor familiar y sobre todo cuando tengo a la mano un vino de tan grande calidad como Sutter Home ya que estos vinos han formado parte de mi familia desde hace muchos años y son de confianza ya que Sutter Home representa una gran parte de los valores familiares que nos destancan a todos por ser una empresa familar.

#summervino Sutter Home

Ademas de disfrutar de un buen vino, en esta ocacion quise preparar algo muy simple pero elegante, y a la vez incorporar de una manera diferente una receta que mi mamá hacia con mucha frecuencia y a mi me encanta.

directions #summervino #mycolectiva

Esta tilapia al horno tiene su historia, como un buen vino, asi que compartire solamente un pedacito de ella; Desde hace mucho a mi madre le encanta el pescado, siempre lo compramos fresco ya que en Costa Rica es muy popular y se utiliza en muchas recetas uno de sus favoritos ha sido la tilapia, pero se canso de comerla frita o empanizada, asi que un dia nos mensiono que iba a tratar de hacerla al horno, entre mi hermana y yo ayudamos a formar el plato, pero la anecdota mas divertida fue que las papas en el fondo nos quedaron crudas, apesar del sabor delicioso de la tilapia las papas por otra parte eran imposibles de comer.

Con forme pasó el tiempo fui perfeccionando la receta y tratando de incorporar diferentes ingredientes, pero esta es la que mas ha gustado. Y ustedes estaran deacuerdo conmigo que todo buen platillo necesita un vino de calidad que lo acompañe, asi que en mi opinion el Pinot Grigio de Sutter Home es excelente para acompañar este plato.

Healthy Summer Foods Are Easy to Find

Healthy Summer Foods Are Easy to Find
As summer gets into full swing, healthy eating becomes an increasingly trendy topic. Luckily, it’s easy to find perfectly delicious, healthy food that’s in season throughout the summer, and the fact that there are so many options available makes it easy to adhere to a healthy diet. Depending on where you live, there will be different seasonal options available at different times, so by purchasing what’s readily available, you can create unique recipes that will expand your horizons.

Eating Local
Another perk of utilizing seasonal ingredients that are readily available is that those ingredients will be local, so, in turn, you will be supporting local farmers and producers. Ensuring that your local economy, especially in terms of food, is thriving is a great way to create a more sustainable economy as a whole.
Purchasing locally sourced food also creates sustainable farming and production practices that have less of an impact on the environment. Not only will you be eating food that is healthier, you will be reducing your carbon footprint. There’s a symbiotic relationship that occurs naturally between those who produce food and the consumer when there’s a focus on eating what’s readily available.

The Versatility of Beets
A great vegetable that grows in summer, beets offer a wonderful flavor that can be used in many ways. Beets can be cut up and used raw in salads, roasted and served with goat cheese, or pickled and saved for later use. No matter how they are prepared, beets are packed with antioxidants and are known to be a great anti-inflammatory. Such a tasty, versatile vegetable should have no problem finding its way into your diet.

Tomatoes and Corn
Nothing says summer like these two powerhouses. There is no better time to eat tomatoes than in summer, which is the season for a number of delicious, juicy varieties that grow just about anywhere. Tomatoes are also high in antioxidants and can be used in as many ways as you can think of. Corn is another summer staple; nothing rounds out a summer barbeque like corn on the cob. With these two options available in just about any locale, there’s no reason not to make them frequent additions to your summer diet.

Add Delicious Fruits to Your Diet
Vegetables aren’t the only healthy food readily available during the summer. There are plenty of delicious fruits, too. Berries, watermelon, peaches, and much more are around in the summer and make for tasty, refreshing treats during those hot days. Not to mention, most fruits are rich in essential vitamins. Nothing tastes quite as good as fresh, in-season fruit, which is just another reason to enjoy all the options while they’re at their peak.

Learn New Recipes and Ideas
Yet another benefit of adhering to what’s locally available to you is that you will find new recipes and ideas that you may not have tried previously. By experimenting with new foods that you may have had little experience with, you will be challenging your palate and your cooking regimen. Opening yourself up to new ideas, in terms of cooking and eating, is the best way to discover the most delicious dishes around.
There are plenty of resources that offer recipes and ideas that’ll get you heading down the right path. Hampton Creek is one of many sources of ideas and information. Take advantage of what you can do with fresh food and fresh ideas.

Get the Entire Family Involved
Everything from shopping at your local farmer’s market to going on a berry-picking excursion can be great fun for a family. You can meet the people who make your food, and your kids can take in the knowledge that comes with learning about seasonal ingredients. Don’t hesitate to get everyone involved in the process.

Do What It Takes to Create a Healthy Lifestyle
Simplicity makes everything easier, and your health is no different. If what comes easy happens to be incorporating healthier foods into your diet, you’re sure to take control of your eating habits in a meaningful way. Do what it takes to create a more sustainable, locally driven approach to food and you will be rewarded. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with different options in order to find new combinations that appeal to your taste buds.

Platano Maduro Cake with Black Beans and Fresh Fuit #RecetasParaMomentos #ad #CollectiveBias

Between all the things I do daily, one is for sure, I need to go to my favorite grocery store to buy the products I need for my recipes.
And let me tell you, from the moment I came to this country I shop in a Kroger banner store call Ralphs, my absolutely favorite for my everyday shopping.

#RecetasParaMomentos products

Not only is very close to my house, but it is also convenient and has amazing offers all the time. Vegetables and fruits are always fresh and they have a good variety of Latin products.
Of course this is very important to me, especially on those occasions when I want to make for my daughters a delicious and traditional Costa Rican recipe, and they love to come with me and sample some cheese, find the bread they love and of course help me with the list, very important is what my little one said, she always help with the list.

#RecetasParaMomentos brand products

I love going and know that I can find everything I need without having to go to another store.
For example, for this recipe, I needed very specific ingredients, such as ripe plantains, refried beans, and fresh fruits, these products represent a very important role in our nutrition, and culturally it is important for us to always eat products of excellent quality.

#RecetasParaMomentos recipe ingredients

Another thing the I love, is just how friendly is everybody, always helping us with what we need an excellent attitude, and I can’t forgot to mention the coupons and sales to help you save more money.

#RecetasParaMomentos recipe directions

But what motivates me to continue visiting my store Ralphs is that ultimately I love the variety, the environment and how convenient it is to buy.
It is truly one of the best supermarkets I visited, and I am a faithful buyer, I would not change it for another. Great prices, great deals, and I find everything I need.
So I invite you to make this recipe and to visit your store Kroger or a Kroger Banner store just like Ralphs.

Oh and don’t forget to let me know what you think about the recipe.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the ends of the banana and cut in half, wash them and place them in a pot with water, cook over medium heat for 20 minutes. Once ready, peel off the skin, and mash them up, add butter, sugar, and cinnamon, put it back on a medium-low heat and mix well.
  2. Mix milk and cornstarch and add it to the mixture above, combine well and remove from heat. Have ready an 8x8 pyrex, place half of the mixture on the bottom, beans and the other half of the mixture. I highly recommend to sprinkle some sugar about a teaspoon and place five little pieces of butter for extra flavor.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes. For the fruit, just wash, place on a plate and once the cake is ready grab a piece and enjoy.

Tita’s Fruit Dessert #SundaySupper

Tita's Fruit Dessert #SundaySupper

Oh my, we all love summer, but the things I love the most are those memories that I have from my childhood, and one of the reasons I love the theme so much this week is because it gives me the opportunity to share this delicious, super easy and so old fashion dessert.

I’m sure many of you know how to make it, but I want to share the recipe my grandmother used to make for us all the time during this time of the year. I love so many aspects of the dessert, especially the way it tastes and how easy it is to make, you don’t need any special ingredients, just some simple everyday ingredients that I know we all have in our pantry.

ingredients dessert #sundaysupper

My way of remembering my grandmother is by cooking all the dishes I learn from her and this is one that it is very close to my heart. I hope you like it and enjoy it just as much as we still do.

Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

 

I want to start by saying that my father was a wonderful person and every time I think about him tears come out, I miss him so much and not only on father’s day but every day.

Ok, no more tears let’s talk about happy memories and the wonderful time we spend together. This maizena tamal was one of his favorites for afternoon coffee and I remember my grandmother making it all the time, it took me a while to master her recipe but I finally got it right.

I’m so happy to be able to make it for my husband and my daughters for this father’s day and to share it with my friends. And let me tell you a little bit about this tamal; in Costa Rica we have different kinds of tamles, we make the traditional with masa harina and the sweet kind made in this case with corn starch, yes as you can see this tamal is completely gluten-free.

One of the things we love about it is to make it and serve with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or the afternoon and is delicious at room temperature or cold. This is definitely one of my favorites and I’m so happy to be able to share it with all of you for this special day.

I’m so happy to share this recipe with all of you today, I love all kinds of butter, you know peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower butter, etc. And for this month theme at The Leftovers Club our friend Faye Rodriguez choose for us to make and send delicious treats with nut butter.

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

This month we want to inspire you with some spring flavors. Ok, let me be honest, here in San Diego, doesn’t look like spring, is gloomy and cold, but what I do when the weather is a little different is too simple, I bake cookies, and lucky for me this month the #CreativeCookieExchange theme is all about spring.

I love how the smell and flavors bring the best of the season and how incredible delicious everything tastes. It is just perfect in so many ways. My favorite flavors in spring are a lemon, and orange, so fresh and so bright, you can make anything with this two flavors and it will taste just perfect.

And you can’t believe what happened to me today I totally forgot that the cookies were baking and Oh No! a hold batch of cookies is burn, but luckily for me, I save the rest from disaster. The bad news is that I can’t send cookies to my friends.

burn cookies basicndelicious

It is ok, another day I will send more than enough. So here you go, a delicious and different cookie recipe for you collection.

Enjoy.

Spring is here! And with it loads of great flavors for baking!
