Honeydew Melon Parfait #farmfreshtotable #WeaveMade #ad

There are some weeks when is impossible for me to go to the farmers market for a number of reasons, and I love to buy fresh local fruit and veggies all the time, and completely miss the freshness when I can’t go. I recently came across this great service call Farm Fresh To You and totally change the way I bought our fruits and veggies. I love this service because they do all the leg work, you know by collecting the fresh fruits and veggies just for you and deliver it to your door; if you don’t think this is amazing well I don’t know what to tell you.#farmfreshtotable #WeaveMade #ad 2

It is even better they have all these different boxes for you to choose, only fruit, only veggies, or a mix of the two, the prices are great and the product it is really fresh, picking the best quality during the early morning and putting it on your door the same day. Choose your box size and delivery schedule. For each box, you can add items you want and remove those you don’t.

#farmfreshtotable #WeaveMade #ad

It is amazing how many different products came in my box, like, corn, cucumber, beets, greens, carrots, peaches; so many that we almost eat the entire box the same day. I used most of my veggies in different recipes for lunch and dinner, like salads, and the fruits, well my daughters completely eat them all, with the exception of the honeydew melon, that I save for this delicious parfait for breakfast.

Cheerios Clusters #CerealConCariño #ad

 

I’m super happy and excited to share with all of you not only a great kid friendly recipe but also some of my childhood stories.
One of my favorites memories as a little girl is when I’m with my grandmother in the kitchen and she teaches me some of her most delicious recipes, In most of them, she used to use Cheerios.

This recipe, in particular, is an adaptation of something very similar that she used to make for us and I remember that especially on Dia del Niño, this dessert was and is my all time favorite.

We always found something to laugh about it and when all the family was together we celebrated the day with food, dessert, and music, what a wonderful memories.
Know as a mother I always try to pass on some of my recipes to my daughters, of course, my grandmother recipes too, but I also want for them to enjoy and created the most wonderful memories to share with their own families.

So, my clusters as I said before are an adaptation of my granny’s recipe, and my little one love to change the cereal every time we make it, sometimes we use Lucky Charms or Cocoa Puff and it turns in a different recipe every time.
If you want, you can add some nuts too and this super simple recipe will become a 5 or 6 recipes that you can make with your kiddos every time.

Sharing and creating is what a great Dia Del Niño is for me because I remember how I enjoy so much with my family, all the different ways we celebrate, all the food we eat and of course all the memories we preserve to this day. What a wonderful time it is indeed.

So join us to celebrate this day, go ahead make my recipe and let me know how you celebrate Dia Del Niño with your kids.

Turkey Picadillo #TryTurkey #ad

I always want to offer and make easy, simple and healthy alternatives to my family, and this recipe is just the perfect example of why I love to cook.
My grandmother use to make this picadillo with lots of red meat, and I love it don’t get me wrong, but one day I decide to make it more simple and healthier for me and my family.

Just changing some ingredients and substituting the red meat with turkey was enough to make the picadillo a great and healthy meal. I do love to cook with turkey and is present even in our hamburgers, yes I made turkey patties from scratch and is one of our favorite every Sunday.

Turkey is really good for you not only is a lean protein, in fact, turkey is a very versatile protein. It absorbs the flavor of spices and sauces providing a lean protein canvas for favorite recipes. In many cases, using turkey can mean a healthier dish with fewer calories.

So I did a turkey recipe remix of my grandmother’s recipe, and let me tell you everybody love it so much that it has become a favorite of us on Tuesday night, I know many of you will say that Tuesdays are for tacos, but in my house Tuesdays are for Turkey not only is super delicious but it is so versatile. I made my picadillo with ground turkey but you can also use turkey sausage, is equally delicious.

For additional recipes, tips, videos and resources on turkey follow Serve Turkey on Facebook and @ServeTurkey on Twitter to create something unexpectedly delicious using turkey!”

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.

vivalamorena-liveforflavor-products-basicndelicious

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.
