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.

Honey Maid Frozen Strawberry Lime Bars #ConMasSabor #ad #LatinaBloggers

The things I remember the most from El Dia Del Niño (Children’s Day) are all the delicious sweets and desserts my family used to give us. And of course as a kid this is a big deal, we were so excited and anxious to get those yummy treats. As a custom in the Latino community April 30 is the day the when we all come together to celebrated this special day or if you don’t know here is the second Sunday in June.

And why not make it huge and celebrate our adorable kids, after all, we have our own day too. This year I made a promise to my kids the I will be doing a special treat for them and I have to keep my promises. Luckily I can have some help, you know because now is very different and I want it to make a delicious and different dessert but with my latin twist.

This bite will be a great option for my girls Merienda when they are back from school, and if you don’t know Merienda is the same as an American snack, the difference is that we as a custom eat it in the afternoon at 3 o’clock and in my country we use this time to spend it with the family and Nabisco is providing a variety of fun and delicious Latino-inspired recipes that are just right to treat the family for Día del niño. Yum!

Breakfast Waffle Empanadas #FueledForSchool #CollectiveBias #Ad

When it comes to our mornings, let me tell you that they are super busy and as my mom use to said nothing better than a “pancita llena” or nothing better than a full tummy before going to school.
And this is one of the reasons I want to share with you this super, super easy option for breakfast.

If you have some Eggo waffles in your freezer, this is the time to go ahead and try this recipe and if you don’t have them, don’t worry, just go to a near Target and buy all the kinds and different flavors you can find. I love Target is like my second home, I go there every week and I always find something new and different and of course is where I buy all my Kellogg’s products for this back to school. Be sure to check out Kellogg’s Back to School packaging and great on-pack offers in store at Target!

#FueledForSchool #CollectiveBias

Ok, back to the recipe, I will list the ingredients later but first let me tell you a little more; I love to serve my girls different options for breakfast every morning, and this sweet option is nothing but delicious. The first ingredient you need and is crucial to this recipe is Dulce De Leche, no caramel, a good Latina mom always have Dulce de Leche in the pantry, this is a most, and of course the Eggo Waffles and some fruit.

#FueledForSchool #CollectiveBias 3

 

I recommend to use your kids favorite fruit and involve them in the making, this is very easy so it will only going to take about 5 minutes to make this breakfast. They will love it, but if you don’t have a lot of time, just make it your self and make one for you too, and have a quick family breakfast with the kiddos.

#FueledForSchool #CollectiveBias 4

The mornings are crazy for everybody but this doesn’t mean that you can not enjoy an great breakfast with your family. This great moments are the ones your kids will remember forever and they will continue this practice with their on families as well.

Chocolate Bundt With Marshmallow Graham Filling #BundtBakers

So this is the story behind this delicious bundt, of course our theme this month is S’mores inspired bundt and in my house chocolate cake is not something that I bake frequently. I need it to come with a great idea in order to make a delicious cake, and because we are moving, and moving is so tired and hard, this was the perfect excuse for me to make a delicious, chocolate, yummy cake.

So I check out my pantry to see what I have and we found a box of chocolate german cake mix, and bingo, I put my thinking cap and I was ready to make a delicious chocolate bundt.

As you already can see, this is a very simply but yet super delicious bundt, and am sure you will love the flavors and the filling, did I mention the the filling is marshmallows and graham crackers? No? Ups! well here you have my very own version of a simple chocolate bundt cake with marshmallow and graham cracker filling.

If you like this recipe don’t forget to share, print, save and comment.

Enjoy.

This is a delicious bundt that you can make and enjoy at any time of the day. Bring some joy to your friends table and why not, now that the kids are in school you can surprise your teacher with something so delicious as this bundt cake.
