I love this month theme, we all know that October is a chocolate month and we must make lots and lots of delicious recipes using chocolate, especially because is a great opportunity to clean up the pantry and start fresh for the holidays.
As a chocoholic myself, I always have a good amount of different kinds of chocolate, you know like chips, bars, and cocoa, I have to say that my pantry is always full with a good variety of this amazing treat.
So check out your pantry because this recipe is super easy to make and I’m sure you will find all the ingredients hiding somewhere.
Foodie Extravaganza is a monthly food fest, where a group of bloggers all create and share a recipe around one of the monthly food ‘holidays’ as detailed in The Nibble. This month Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas is hosting and since chocolate day is October 28th, Chocolate is our theme. There are actually two other days that incorporate chocolate in October, the 14th is Chocolate Covered Insect Day and the 18th is Chocolate Cupcake day. We didn’t want to get to specific though, so we will just say chocolate.
Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you’re a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board! Looking for our previous parties? Check them out HERE.

I have been using this wonderful coffee maker for a while and is the best thing ever, it makes delicious coffee and is so easy to use. I, personality love the looks and the different way to brew my coffee every morning and afternoon.
Yep, I drink coffee multiple times a day, especially on my very busy days, I also like how easy it is to clean and it can keep my coffee warm for a good amount of time.
It doesn’t take lots of space and the set up is very simple, my coffee is richer, bolder and just perfect. You must look for it and change the way of coffee, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as me.
Football season is here and I can’t wait. It is a great time to share delicious appetizer and finger food ideas and share them with my friends on Sundays, you know, Sunday football is the best.
So today I bring to you my version of two things I love, chicken and lime or lemon if you want, and I made a deliciously lemony chicken wings, my version of the best of the end of summer with the start of the perfect finger food.
And you know that wings are the favorite finger food at any sports match especially football, but for me, a delicious wing has to be crispy and full of flavor, you may thing that lime flavor is difficult to keep but marinating them is the secret to a great flavor. They are perfect, with some fries and a side of ranch dressing, my favorite.
So let’s check it up a little bit and go ahead make this delicious and different wings for your next football party.

Lemony Chicken Wings #SundaySupper
Your favorite wings from now on, so crispy and with a fabulous lime flavor.
Thanks to Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies for providing me with a tin of cookies for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
I got a delicious tin of Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies and let me tell you, this is one of the best cookies I have tried. The challenge for us, taste the freshness each day. So we need it to eat one each day to see how everything was going, my job is so hard :).
On day one, I just could not resist eating about 3 with my cup of coffee and my girls definitely enjoy them too. The only downfall I have is that some of the cookies were broken, but either way, we eat them all.
By day 4 the cookies were still fresh and delicious, one key element is to keep the cookies in the original tin, this will keep them with zero expose to any element that can make them soft.
By day 7 most of the cookies were gone, but the freshness was still there, I kept some for more time and let me tell you, the cookies were delicious, fresh and full of flavors.
I really want to encore you to buy and try Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies. Check out their website for more information and here are their social channels.

Do you love easy to make and ready to use baking mixes? I do too and on this occasion, I want to share with you a wonderful product that is not only super easy to use but also perfect when you are creating a delicious dessert with the kids.
Okay, let me give you more info, Nestle Toll House is launching a new product line and this will make your life super easy when it comes to baking. This line of baking mixes is perfect for easy and fast dessert and at the same time you can get super creative while making it.
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.
And we love to make so many different things, like these sandwich cookies, my inspiration for this recipe is simple, my little one, she is 7 and love cookies so much, and I always have some for her to eat after dinner, but I want it to make something different, and because my freezer is full I just want it to recreate the classic sandwich cookies. 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.

Ok, let me start by saying that I love donuts! Thank you, I needed that, I’m so happy to participate this month in the donut event for #FoodieExtravaganza and I’m sure you are too.
This is a great theme to have especially this month for me living in Southen California, the weather has been wonderful not too hot and perfect for baking, wich makes me so happy because I love to bake during the summer time. I know most of the donuts are fried but some people love to bake them and let me tell you those donuts are pretty delicious too.
Now let me talk about my donuts, I know that the title said orange glace, but, I decide also to present them in a different way and add the orange zest to the dough, this addition will make the donuts tastier and with a delicious citrus flavor. I’m sure you will love the flavor and this is a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids and let them decorate and cover the donuts and those little fingers in gooey goodies.
July has arrived and that means it’s time for another #FoodieExtravaganza! Each month we take turns hosting and selecting a foodie holiday associated with that month. Somehow in all the planning July was overlooked so in a mad dash in the second half of June, Lauren of From Gate to Plate told us to celebrate the doughnut. If anyone is keeping score, National Doughnut Day is actually the first Friday in June, but none of us are complaining to be celebrating one of America’s favorite breakfast treats today. July is National Culinary Arts month so let’s just go with that. Also in July: Fried Chicken Day (today, the 6th), Blueberry Muffin Day (the 11th), and Junk Food Day (the 21st).
Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you’re a spectator looking for delicious tidbits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board! Looking for our previous parties? Check them out HERE.

Una de las cosas que mas me encanta es pasar tiempo con mi familia, cocinar algo rico y disfrutar de un buen vino. No hay nada que me guste mas que invitarlos a que disfruten de una tarde llena de calor familiar y sobre todo cuando tengo a la mano un vino de tan grande calidad como Sutter Homeya que estos vinos han formado parte de mi familia desde hace muchos años y son de confianza ya que Sutter Home representa una gran parte de los valores familiares que nos destancan a todos por ser una empresa familar.
Ademas de disfrutar de un buen vino, en esta ocacion quise preparar algo muy simple pero elegante, y a la vez incorporar de una manera diferente una receta que mi mamá hacia con mucha frecuencia y a mi me encanta.
Esta tilapia al horno tiene su historia, como un buen vino, asi que compartire solamente un pedacito de ella; Desde hace mucho a mi madre le encanta el pescado, siempre lo compramos fresco ya que en Costa Rica es muy popular y se utiliza en muchas recetas uno de sus favoritos ha sido la tilapia, pero se canso de comerla frita o empanizada, asi que un dia nos mensiono que iba a tratar de hacerla al horno, entre mi hermana y yo ayudamos a formar el plato, pero la anecdota mas divertida fue que las papas en el fondo nos quedaron crudas, apesar del sabor delicioso de la tilapia las papas por otra parte eran imposibles de comer.
Con forme pasó el tiempo fui perfeccionando la receta y tratando de incorporar diferentes ingredientes, pero esta es la que mas ha gustado. Y ustedes estaran deacuerdo conmigo que todo buen platillo necesita un vino de calidad que lo acompañe, asi que en mi opinion el Pinot Grigio de Sutter Home es excelente para acompañar este plato.
Asi que espero les guste esta receta y a la vez los invito a prueben los vinos Sutter Home vinos de excelente calidad.

Between all the things I do daily, one is for sure, I need to go to my favorite grocery store to buy the products I need for my recipes.
And let me tell you, from the moment I came to this country I shop in a Kroger banner store call Ralphs, my absolutely favorite for my everyday shopping.
Not only is very close to my house, but it is also convenient and has amazing offers all the time. Vegetables and fruits are always fresh and they have a good variety of Latin products.
Of course this is very important to me, especially on those occasions when I want to make for my daughters a delicious and traditional Costa Rican recipe, and they love to come with me and sample some cheese, find the bread they love and of course help me with the list, very important is what my little one said, she always help with the list.
I love going and know that I can find everything I need without having to go to another store.
For example, for this recipe, I needed very specific ingredients, such as ripe plantains, refried beans, and fresh fruits, these products represent a very important role in our nutrition, and culturally it is important for us to always eat products of excellent quality.
Another thing the I love, is just how friendly is everybody, always helping us with what we need an excellent attitude, and I can’t forgot to mention the coupons and sales to help you save more money.
But what motivates me to continue visiting my store Ralphs is that ultimately I love the variety, the environment and how convenient it is to buy.
It is truly one of the best supermarkets I visited, and I am a faithful buyer, I would not change it for another. Great prices, great deals, and I find everything I need.
So I invite you to make this recipe and to visit your store Kroger or a Kroger Banner store just like Ralphs.
Oh and don’t forget to let me know what you think about the recipe.

Platano Maduro Cake with Black Beans and Fresh Fuit #RecetasParaMomentos #ad #CollectiveBias
A perfectly, delicious and different way to eat your plantains. Not your everyday cake but totally delicious.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the ends of the banana and cut in half, wash them and place them in a pot with water, cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.
Once ready, peel off the skin, and mash them up, add butter, sugar, and cinnamon, put it back on a medium-low heat and mix well.
Mix milk and cornstarch and add it to the mixture above, combine well and remove from heat. Have ready an 8x8 pyrex, place half of the mixture on the bottom, beans and the other half of the mixture. I highly recommend to sprinkle some sugar about a teaspoon and place five little pieces of butter for extra flavor.
Bake for 15 minutes. For the fruit, just wash, place on a plate and once the cake is ready grab a piece and enjoy.
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.
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.
