This is my favorite time of the year and as always I can’t wait to share and create delicious recipes with my Latin twist. And this is a good time for you because I have the perfect recipe to make this to start celebrating Las Posadas. 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.

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.

Turkey Croquets with Mushroom Sauce #SundaySupper

Turkey Croquets with Mushroom Sauce #SundaySupper

I’m so honored to be a brand ambassador for Gallo Family Vineyards and of course be part of the amazing Sunday Supper family.

In this occasion I want to share with you a delicious appetizer idea to help give thanks on this Thanksgiving day.
This recipe is great to be pair with Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio, this delicious and delicate wines are the perfect compliment for your Thanksgiving dinner. This are fantastic wines, specially when pair with poultry, sweet and with a delicate flavor.

One of the things I love the most in this season is the idea of sharing valuable time with my family and friends and I also enjoy having a delicious meal and a good wine. They are great for gift and even better when you add some extra love in the bag, nothing better than a good jar full of love.

In my house we are always prepare, I made my signature turkey croquets with mushroom sauce and my husband help me with keeping our guest happy, passing along the wine.

My personal favorite is the Pinot Grigio, it has a sweet kind of flavor and for me these style of wines are the best. I also like my wine cool and ready to serve, that is why we also keep a bucket with ice to keep the wine cool, refreshing and delicious, it doesn’t matter how cold it is outside, my wine has to be cool.
And I think most of the people think the same makes me very happy because when I share personal and important moment with my family I want to be with all my favorite things at once.

Giving thanks is very important, and you must do it all the time not only on a special day, you can thank you husband, wife or significant other for sharing their life with you. You can thank you kids for been so amazing and wonderful, and you can thank yourself, yes you are a very important person that makes a lot of things possible, and keep the balance in the family. All your hard work must be notice and you need to give you a big hug and thank you for all the wonderful thing you do.

You will love this easy recipe idea, great to make for all the festivities we have ahead, and is perfect to eat at room temperature, make them ahead, freeze and just heat up before your guest arrive, but do not forget to purchase Gallo Family Vineyards Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio this will become your secret weapon this holiday season.

Tortas De Atún (Tuna Fritters) #MeGustaConLeche #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of the California Milk Processor Board. The opinions and text are all mine.

tortas de atun tomaleche

The other day I was starring at my fridge trying to find something to complement some tuna fritters leftovers from the other night, it came to my attention a gallon of cold milk, that was the moment I decided to drink my milk with tuna fritters, no wait, to eat my tuna fritters with a glass of milk.

And I know it sounds weird, but there is nothing more delicious in the world than a glass of cold milk, and I love warm milk too, specially when I can’t sleep, but when is hot outside, nothing is better than cold milk.

Definitely, it was the best decision ever, my tuna fritters taste super delicious with the milk, it was unbelievable, never since I started making this recipe image that milk was the secret complement to my fritters and with the combination of flavors in my mouth I couldn’t wait to try more and more different savory foods and see what new flavors I was missing.

tortas de atun

Because I was so surprise, that day I made the fritters, I will give you the recipe soon, and serve a glass of milk to my family and of course the dinner, everybody looked at me with a funny look, like saying that I was crazy or something, but I told them “Dare to try the foods you love with milk” and you will notice the difference immediately; Everybody was so surprise and happy and of course I was too.

I mean we love milk, we drink milk every single day, but to paired the milk with our favorite foods was a first time for all of us, specially my husband, he would never and I mean never dare to try something so savory and different with milk.

ingredients-tortas

You can make Milk a tasty “must have” for every meal.“Yum! I had no idea Milk tasted so good with so many different kinds of foods! I wonder what else it’ll go 
well with?”

Here are some videos you can enjoy, and see what else go well with milk.

And use the #MeGustaConLeche to share pictures of your favorite foods paired with milk.
