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.

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.

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.

I love holidays a lot and my family too, sharing and spending time together are great things about this events, the only part that I don’t really like is the amount of leftovers I have during this times of the year.
Sometimes we eat leftovers for like a week, specially in thanksgiving, and by the time we finish I don’t really know what else to make with turkey; for easter, it very similar, but easier for me to create different recipes for my family to enjoy.
This time I have lots of bread, and the perfect way for me to use day old bread it’s to make bread pudding. This is a great recipe if you want a bread pudding with a different twist, cheese and pineapple are the perfect combinations to make it more interesting and a little different from everything else.
Not very sweet and cook to perfection, is definitely a new favorite in my house and maybe the new request for our easter dinner.
Enjoy.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mix together, condensed milk, eggs, evaporated milk, nutmeg, pineapple juice and butter, then add cheese and pineapple, add to the bread cut in pieces, I used 1 loaf of french bread cut in cubes.
  3. With your hand start mixing all the ingredients until the bread is super soft and the liquid is completely absorb by the bread.
  4. Place in a grease mold, I used 4 little baking dishes the I recently bought but you can use any kind you like, just make sure you can fix all the mixture in it, don’t want to waste any drop.
