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.

Arroz Con Dulce de Leche #SummerVino #VeranoSutter #ad #CollectiveBias

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.

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.
