I want to share with all of you today a great recipe but also an especial celebration. As a latina, I feel the responsibility to share all my knowledge and roots with my daughters. I know most of the time we feel like in a competition of language but let me tell you, we are and we must teach our kids how important it is to speak in Spanish.

My grandmother used to say, los hijos son el reflejo de uno mismo, and let me tell you that is true. Every day I’m on top of my girls asking them to speak more and more Spanish.

I’m so proud to have this heritage and share all my abuelas recipes and of course, I’m so lucky that I can find lots of the same ingredients we have in Costa Rica here in San Diego. Walmart is a source for me to find all I need for my recipes, especially this month that we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.

I must say, one pantry item that I love and I can’t live without is NESTLÉ® La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk; We use it in almost or all our recipes, we eat it with crackers or fresh bread and pour on top of our snow cones, we have to have it at all times, it is definitely part of our food culture.

And speaking of celebrations, did I mention that back home my family when it comes to food and gatherings is the best, we all make different traditional dishes and share with our neighbors and friends. Here in San Diego, I’m blessed to have fabulous friends to celebrate this important month and sometimes I rely in different dishes that I love and are not very latinoish but, we put our stamp on it. For example, I brought STOUFFER’S® Family Size Chicken Alfredo and because this is a complete meal, I recommend to take advantage of the Ibotta link which offers a $1.00 reimbursement. I just made to accompany this dish my abuelitas Ensalada de Repollo, Yum! what a delicious dinner we had.

And for dessert, we had so much, Arroz con leche, caramelos and because I love easy peasy no  complications, I know everybody love cookies and ice cream It was easy OUTSHINE® FROZEN SNACKS and NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough, was an easy option, so fresh cookies and paletas it is.

Don’t get me wrong we are very proud of our culture and our food, but sometimes we need to make our life a little easy to also enjoy the party.

I know what are you thinking, what is my recipe? Ok just let me tell you that this recipe is my sisters go to dessert, she loves to make it and is so easy and so traditional that I want to share it with all of you. I’m sure that you are going to love how simple and easy it is, and  how perfect it is for any family gathering. Remember we as latinos, are very humble people that love to laugh, eat and spend time with our families and friends, and we made delicious food with the most basic ingredients.

A #ElenaOfAvalor Party Premier with Dulce de Leche Flan and Fun #Ad #DiMeMedia

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with DiMeMedia and Disney Channel. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

#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.

#ElenaOfAvalor makign decorations

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.
And don’t forget to follow Elena of Avalor’s latest royal adventures! Elena of Avalor airs on the Disney Channel on Fridays at 7:30pm ET/6:30 pm CT and 7:30 pm PT!

Tita's Fruit Dessert #SundaySupper

Oh my, we all love summer, but the things I love the most are those memories that I have from my childhood, and one of the reasons I love the theme so much this week is because it gives me the opportunity to share this delicious, super easy and so old fashion dessert.

I’m sure many of you know how to make it, but I want to share the recipe my grandmother used to make for us all the time during this time of the year. I love so many aspects of the dessert, especially the way it tastes and how easy it is to make, you don’t need any special ingredients, just some simple everyday ingredients that I know we all have in our pantry.

ingredients dessert #sundaysupper

My way of remembering my grandmother is by cooking all the dishes I learn from her and this is one that it is very close to my heart. I hope you like it and enjoy it just as much as we still do.

Dulce de Leche Mousse with Crunchy Sponge #SweeterPascua #ad #CollectiveBias

In Costa Rica we celebrate Pascua with our family and friends and sometimes we just take our time to relax and enjoy the weather. Normally during this time of the year is very hot over there, so you will see a lot of families enjoying the beach during that time.

#sweeterpascua #walmart #chocolates

For those that don’t go to the beach, we stay at home enjoying all the celebrations and having some rest and family time. We also gather to enjoy a lot of food and delicious desserts. Yum! as I start thinking about dessert it came to my mind a bizcocho de dulce de leche that my grandmother used to make, and this is a secret please don’t tell anybody but, this was a “cake” with wherever we had on the pantry, one thing that my grandma was good at was to created delicious dessert using her imagination.

#ingredients #sponge 2

This bizcocho or sponge was our official Holy week cake, it was perfect, not to sweet and great because like I said before it is very hot during this time. We made it as a family and we were all involve in it, I was the official mixer, yep my grandma made me mix with a wooden spoon, she said no hay nada como una cuchara de madera.

#ingredients #sponge

Our Pascua or Holy week was the best I remember, and now I want my girls to get into this roots, that is why we went to Walmart to buy some delicious MARS candy specially:

  • M&M’s® varieties that have Easter colors
  • DOVE® Chocolate Eggs
