#ElenaOfAvalor viewing party table

One of the things that I truly love about Elena Of Avalor is the way she helps and takes charge of every challenge that comes to her hands. We definitely love the way the series encourages everyone to be better and to work through any obstacle.

Us, in particular, see a lot of Elena in our oldest daughter, as a big sister she has a lot of responsibilities and her little sister wants to be just like her. We love the fact she is always helping and eager to be better and learn every day.

#ElenaOfAvalor Preparations

She is very proud of her heritage and when I talk to her about Princess Elena Of Avalor she was absolutely happy. You need to understand my eleven-year-old is very emotional and we encourage her every day to be herself and not let anyone put her down.

Her name is Sofia and she is just the most wonderful girl ever. As we were putting our party together she was there helping me decorate the cake, playing with our guests and her little sister, making all kinds of decorations, getting ready for this viewing party was a family teamwork all the way.

One of her favorites desserts was the Dulce de Leche flan. We made lots of food for our guest like picadillo de papa, some agua de frutas, chocolate cake and the flan. Yummy food to keep everybody well feeds while commercials because we did not want it to miss any moment of the premier.

My daughters are my life and I want them to share memories, stories, and ideas to their children. Princess Elena Of Avalor teach us the most important principles in life family is first, you can always say sorry, be yourself and the most important is you promise something to keep it because the most important people in your life can end it up hurt because of that.

#ElenaOfAvalor healping friends

We see a lot of Elena like I said before in our daughter Sofia, and nothing makes me happy than have a Latina Princess to which my girls can identify their self, share and learn at the same time with their friend’s new adventures and ideas to make a better life and get #ReadytoRule the world.

Oh, you are wondering now about that yummy dessert right? Don’t you worry, I have you covered, here’s the recipe for the flan.

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.

#veranosutter #summervino #moscato

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.

almost ready to eat #veranosutter #summervino

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.

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.

Turkey Croquets with Mushroom Sauce #SundaySupper 2

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.
