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.
I’m so happy to back blogging with all of you, is being a while and I miss sharing with you what has happened in my kitchen.
But today I want to share a delicious cake that is not only great to eat as is, but a fabulous option to celebrated any birthday.
To tell you a little bit, this bundt cake is actually a version of the cake that I make for my husband every year, he doesn’t like frosting or anything on his cake and I always make him a simple bundt but full with flavor.
I must say that this is the version the I enjoy the most, and not only me but my girls are a big fan of it. You would love it too and if you can just add some light frosting or whipped cream and you will be making the most decadent and delicious bundt cake ever.

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.
Please enter the sweepstakes below, you can win fabulous prices, great opportunity to also share this recipe with your friends so they can enter too and win big.
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.

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.

For example, my girls love to bake with me and I always try to have on hand easy shortcuts for them to help them to make the perfect dessert. The baking mixes are perfect because they can make different flavors and at the same time created a completely different dessert out of them.

The firts thing on the list is go to Walmart and buy as many as we can of the baking mixes, we want it to stock up our pantry with all the mixes to make as many combinations as we can, and that way invite some friends to try our cookies.
Ok, for the cookies I use my new favorite NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Cookies & More Cookie Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, oh my, they are so soft, deliciously sweet, and so much chocolate flavor in every bite, and to complement these cookies a soft and perfect hazelnut buttercream, so creamy and I’m sure you will love this combination as much as we do.

Like most of the latino families, mine is very particular about dessert, we need a delicious and sweet dessert after a good meal, and we always try to make something that it will be easy to share with everyone. In my house as a general rule, we have wine to pair with our dessert and the one we love is Sutter Home Moscato, this is a good sweet wine, perfect with dessert.
I love Sutter Home Wines, is a great option to take to my friend’s house when we are having a get together for any occasion. You must know the latino culture is very happy, we love to enjoy life, get together and have fun, we love to drink good wine and eat. We don’t need a special day to do it, just bring your favorite Sutter Home Wine and lets party.
This is one of the reasons why I made Arroz con Dulce de Leche, is just perfect for sharing and great to enjoy warm or just a room temperature. You maybe are surprised that this recipe in particular call for Dulce de Leche and I’m sure you are like, that is a little weird, but, let me tell you Dulce de Leche is huge in Costa Rica, we use it in all our sweet desserts, pastries and more, and I’m so happy that I can find it here, because this Arroz con Leche won’t be the same without the flavor of this delicious sweet mixture.
And no, dulce de leche is not the same as caramel, so I’m sorry, this is a must for the recipe, but you can find it, I’m sure, besides, you will see how the flavor of the Sutter Home Moscato complements perfectly with the Arroz con Leche, is a match made for perfection.
I encourage you to make this recipe, let me know if you love it and don’t forget to Uncork the Moments, and try Sutter Home Wines, they will be your new go-to to any occasion.

Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.
