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.

Women Goals and Finance #WomenInspired #Ad

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and DiMe Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
women-goals-and-finance-womeninspired-ad
Hi, today we are going to talk about money, yes, you knew that we need it to have this conversation for a long time. And the thing is us women don’t really talk about finances as a topic when we have a girls night and we do really need to do it more often.

I recently had the pleasure to attend an event with Prudential to learn more about what we as women need to know about our future and let me tell you, it completely opens my eyes in a very good way.

We learn about the issues with money and woman, on how the men had taken the role of the family to provide and we are more low key sometimes and stay home and assume some responsibilities as has bean the costume.

But the topic that was more in tune with me was that me as an entrepreneur I tend to price myself really low and don’t value the work that I do. I love the idea that I’m the solution to many other women out there and we are completely capable of competing with men on a financial level.
What financial challenges have you faced and conquered? How did you do it?
What are you doing to sustain your financial wellness, work towards retirement and invest in your own legacy?
Is there such a thing as work / life balance? Learn how to prioritize.
Juggling work and family to reach your goals isn’t easy, but it can be done. Finding dependent childcare or eldercare, requesting a flexible work schedule or asking the family to help around the house are a few ideas. #WomenInspired http://bit.ly/1XnczUc

_dime-successisyours-womeninspired

I want to grow my business and be a useful person, and sometimes we only think about today and no tomorrow. Remember, personal finances is a personal responsibility. Besides your family and loved ones, what inspires or motivates you to keep going?

The best advice I receive: Reach to your Prudential Adviser, they can help you reach your goal for you and your loved ones. Work with a professional that has the knowledge that you need to guide you.

womeninspired-ad-ready

We have the tools to built the most amazing business, my homework for you is to sit down with your family and talk about your financial future. Call and as for a Prudential Adviser, to learn and ask as many questions you have is never too late to start saving for your future.

We all love to have the means to enjoy our life when we are older right? Well is not only saving, the key to all this is knowledge and having our money in good hands.

Protecting the work of a lifetime – pointers for business owners and individuals
Building wealth isn’t easy. But it can be even harder to keep it. In this panel discussion, three financial professionals explain everything from starting a business to money management and succession planning. In the end, devising a plan and putting it into action may be the most crucial job of all. Hear what they are saying in this video. #WomenInspired http://bit.ly/29qHYTT
