This is one of the biggest events during the holiday season, the entire community come to celebrate and share with everybody, you can’t miss the signing and food these days, it is amazing.

I remember how we all came to sing door by door and how we ended up in one door singing and at the end we enter the house, wich was normally my aunt’s house (she always had the best food) finish signing with our neighbours and family, to finish with a great meal, one of the best time of my childhood, we all came together as one big family to eat. To us, this was a special time, I had to spend some time helping my aunt with the food, sharing some laughs with my cousins and eating a lot, of course as a Hispanic for us there is not better time than the holiday season, we enjoy every single moment to the max, and now I can share all my memories and some dishes with my daughter, I’m sure they would do the same with their kids too.

And of course to make a huge plate of food you need good quality products, and I have the best by my side, just as La Morena® and Knorr®, as many of you already know, these products bring the flavor of your food to another level. As always my go to place to find and buy my favorite products is Walmart and you must go to the Hispanic aisle, where you can find the products I’m using today in my recipe.

Because this time of the year is so busy, I make the recipe simple and easy to follow, with ingredients that we all have on hand, and of course other products that as I told you before you can find at your local Walmart.
And of course, this rice is just perfect not only for this special occasion but you can easily make it as an easy dinner for a large gathering on a different occasion.

My secret to the recipe? You ask, using Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon Granulated Bouillon to make the broth for the rice and the sauce and to add a different kick to the sauce also, I added some La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, I love how subtle the spicy flavor is in my sauce not overpowering thanks to the chipotle peppers.

My recipe is simple but big on flavor and you will find it so easy to make that I just want to read all the comments you’ll have for me at the end.

Pairing the Perfect Lasagna #BalanceYourPlate #ad

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

pairing-the-perfect-lasagna-balanceyourplate-ad

Have you ever wonder in the aisles of the super market looking for an alternative to your everyday menu? Well I’m, and don’t get me wrong I love to cook but sometimes I need an easy alternative to our dinner.

Luckily for me I found the perfect and better alternative, no more junk food for us on those days. My go-to meal has to be the delicious frozen meals from Stouffer’s specially the most amazing lasagna I have ever had, the Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce. It is incredible good and let me tell you as a lover of all things Italian, this lasagna is definitely at all times in my freezer.

balanceyourplate-product

What I love the most about Stouffer’s is the has recently announced its new “Kitchen Cupboard” commitment. This new initiative focuses on shortening and simplifying recipes that only include ingredients that consumers can recognize and can find at home, like vine-ripened tomatoes, freshly made pasta, and real mozzarella.

And over the next few years, consumers will see Kitchen Cupboard renovations across existing and new products.

The guidelines include:

  • Using ingredients that consumers trust and recognize, like what they would use in their own home kitchens, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
  • Working on simplified recipes that result in great taste with fewer ingredients
    Offering recipes that provide consumers with the same, or better, dining experience at a good value

balanceyourplate-on-the-table

So you have to be sure and thrust in the quality of the Stouffer’s products. With this delicious lasagna I decided to make a simple but perfect salad. This simple spinach salad wich my younger daughter love to make with me and you can’t image how well the salad and the lasagna go together.

So don’t worry anymore or wonder in every aisle corner, heat over to the freezer section and grab a Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce to enjoy with your family and don’t forget to make my spinach salad.

Today I want to talk to you about something that no many of us know. The holiday season is very special for everybody, but there’s many people thar don’t have the necessary means to supply the most basic needs, such as coats, scarves, gloves and more.
This is one of the reasons why Coca-Cola® a great company that has been on my table for many years, has join forces with the One Warm Coat® a non-profit organization that whose mission is to provide anyone in need with half a million coats this holiday season.

coca-cola-products-layeronlove

And definitely this is a great time to give back and bring the family together to help and also teach our children about how good it is to give without receiving anything in return. It is also an excellent time to go to Walmart and purchase some Coca-Cola® products, also all the materials you will see here are from Walmart, so this season think that everything you need you will find it in your local Walmart.

layeronlove-gift

And we can all join and help achieve this great mission, just purchase Coca-Cola, Coke Zero, Fanta, Coca-Cola life and Diet Coke and then join by sharing how you are helping this season, use the hashtag #LayerOnLove in all your social media.

tag-layeronlove

And to help the cause I made this goody bags, to spread the word around. Nothing to fancy or complicated and reminds people that they don’t need a reason to give just a good heart. With the goody bag, I made this printable TAGS that you can print and ad to the goody bag, is great way to remember why the bag is so important. Also to my friends that I know need a 2Liter Coke, I add a candy cane and the tag, so they can remember too.

FOR THE GOODY BAG YOU NEED:

  • Party transparent bags.
  • Candy Canes.
  • Hot Coco Mix packages
  • Diet Coke 1/2L
  • Gloves
  • Ribon
  • Tags

layeronlove-tutorial

And this is very simple, just place all the items in a bag, close with the ribon and attact the tag to it. You can use any ribon color you like and or any flavor of Coca-Cola products that I mention before. The gloves are just a token to remind them why the cause is so important and they can easily donate them.

By coming together and inspiring your followers to donate to One Warm Coat® on Coke.com/LayerOnLove, we could collectively help to put a coat on one million people in need this winter.

Arroz con Leche with Coconut and Cheese #SundaySupper

arroz-con-leche-with-coconut-and-cheese-sundaysupper

I do love all kinds of desserts, but my favorites are those that bring wonderful memories from my childhood. This arroz con leche, have a special place in my heart because my grandmother used to make it all the time as a number on dessert after our holiday dinner.

As one of our family favorite dessert, over the year I have been adding different toppings or ingredients to make it more interesting. Originally, the only difference in this recipe was the addition of raisins, and that is very normal, but we make all kinds of arroz con leche, this one is my favorite.

There is a restaurant in Costa Rica where they sell only typical food, you know, the kind of food you buy in restaurant around little towns, and the addition of cheese comes from one of my favorite restaurant over there, and I have to say is still one of my favorites.

I really hope you like it and please let me know your favorite Arroz con Leche flavor.
