First let me tell you that making school lunches is something that I have to do on a regular basis, and I always try to come out with something inventing and different, not only because my girls love a good homemade lunch at school but also because there is nothing more satisfying to me that having a great balanced meal for them.
And this is just one of the reasons to why I love so much this theme today. When I was making my meal plan for the first 2 months of school, yes I know is still early but I like to be prepare, I came out with this different and inventive quesadilla, that I actually made and let the girls try to see if this would be a good option for them.
And let me tell you it was a great idea, they love it so much that of course, I have to make it before school again. But to be honest I don’t mind, it makes me happier than this. This quesadilla is a great hot lunch option, not only because is easy to make, you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and it only takes 10 minutes if your time in the morning.
So, don’t worry about making a hot lunch for the kiddos this school year because we have it cover.

I’m super happy and excited to share with all of you not only a great kid friendly recipe but also some of my childhood stories.
One of my favorites memories as a little girl is when I’m with my grandmother in the kitchen and she teaches me some of her most delicious recipes, In most of them, she used to use Cheerios.
This recipe, in particular, is an adaptation of something very similar that she used to make for us and I remember that especially on Dia del Niño, this dessert was and is my all time favorite.
We always found something to laugh about it and when all the family was together we celebrated the day with food, dessert, and music, what a wonderful memories.
Know as a mother I always try to pass on some of my recipes to my daughters, of course, my grandmother recipes too, but I also want for them to enjoy and created the most wonderful memories to share with their own families.
So, my clusters as I said before are an adaptation of my granny’s recipe, and my little one love to change the cereal every time we make it, sometimes we use Lucky Charms or Cocoa Puff and it turns in a different recipe every time.
If you want, you can add some nuts too and this super simple recipe will become a 5 or 6 recipes that you can make with your kiddos every time.
Sharing and creating is what a great Dia Del Niño is for me because I remember how I enjoy so much with my family, all the different ways we celebrate, all the food we eat and of course all the memories we preserve to this day. What a wonderful time it is indeed.
So join us to celebrate this day, go ahead make my recipe and let me know how you celebrate Dia Del Niño with your kids.
April is definitely a great month to start making delicious and fresh recipes, specially when the products are just around the corner. In my case I can find all kinds of fresh and local products in my supermarket.
This is just one of the reason why I love this weeks theme, fresh tomatoes are great on spring, and we can get all kinds, not only are they great for salads, but a good red sauce made with the best quality tomatoes is what everybody needs right how.
But of course this salad is perfect for an afternoon picnic in this amazing weather. Well, you know, I live in California so the weather is always the best, sorry to my friends dealing with snow right know.
But if you feel like channeling some Cali weather you can always make my salad, is fresh made with great ingredients and everybody will love it.

Using La Morena Products to created my recipes for this holy week is bean really a delicious and perfect idea.
I’m very lucky to have a great variety of stores where I can find these quality products like Northgate Gonzalez, this latino specialty store is where you can find all kinds of different La Morena products.
The authentic flavor and great variety of the products are what’s makes me keep using them in all my recipes. And you know the this is the time for Lent, so all the recipes we make are meat free, only fish and veggies are allowed, we take this time of reflection very serious.I recently bought a variety of jalapeños, chipotle, chipotle sauce, in these days of Easter or Cuaresma adding original and different flavors is what makes my meals even more delicious. This vegetable stew is a Sunday lunch in my house for Semana Santa, we love to make this healthy, pack in flavor meals, in my house is a most after church and once in a while, I change it up a little by adding pieces of fish.

In a heavy bottom pan heat to medium heat, add oil, onions,tomato and bell pepper, cook for 3 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients including the chipotle sauce, ketchup, water, and tomato paste, low the heat cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Once ready add salt and pepper to taste, cilantro and let it cook for 3 more minutes, in the meantime toast some bread, I personally love bolillo bread, you can find this bread in latino specialty stores, but you can use any one of your preference.
Also if you like a lot of spice in your food, you can perfectly use the entire can of chipotle sauce.
I always want to offer and make easy, simple and healthy alternatives to my family, and this recipe is just the perfect example of why I love to cook.
My grandmother use to make this picadillo with lots of red meat, and I love it don’t get me wrong, but one day I decide to make it more simple and healthier for me and my family.
Just changing some ingredients and substituting the red meat with turkeywas enough to make the picadillo a great and healthy meal. I do love to cook with turkey and is present even in our hamburgers, yes I made turkey patties from scratch and is one of our favorite every Sunday.
Turkey is really good for you not only is a lean protein, in fact, turkey is a very versatile protein. It absorbs the flavor of spices and sauces providing a lean protein canvas for favorite recipes. In many cases, using turkey can mean a healthier dish with fewer calories.
So I did a turkey recipe remix of my grandmother’s recipe, and let me tell you everybody love it so much that it has become a favorite of us on Tuesday night, I know many of you will say that Tuesdays are for tacos, but in my house Tuesdays are for Turkey not only is super delicious but it is so versatile. I made my picadillo with ground turkey but you can also use turkey sausage, is equally delicious.
Heat a pot over medium heat, add onions and bell pepper, cook for 3 minutes, then add the ground turkey and cook for about 5 minutes, moving constantly.
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix until well combine, cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes over low heat. This slow cooking process is very important for the potatoes and turkey to absorb all the delicious flavors. Remember to check the salt before serving and you can always serve with a side of salad

Have you ever wonder in the aisles of the super market looking for an alternative to your everyday menu? Well I’m, and don’t get me wrong I love to cook but sometimes I need an easy alternative to our dinner.
Luckily for me I found the perfect and better alternative, no more junk food for us on those days. My go-to meal has to be the delicious frozen meals from Stouffer’s specially the most amazing lasagna I have ever had, the Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce. It is incredible good and let me tell you as a lover of all things Italian, this lasagna is definitely at all times in my freezer.
What I love the most about Stouffer’s is the has recently announced its new “Kitchen Cupboard” commitment. This new initiative focuses on shortening and simplifying recipes that only include ingredients that consumers can recognize and can find at home, like vine-ripened tomatoes, freshly made pasta, and real mozzarella.
And over the next few years, consumers will see Kitchen Cupboard renovations across existing and new products.
The guidelines include:
Using ingredients that consumers trust and recognize, like what they would use in their own home kitchens, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
Working on simplified recipes that result in great taste with fewer ingredients
Offering recipes that provide consumers with the same, or better, dining experience at a good value
So you have to be sure and thrust in the quality of the Stouffer’s products. With this delicious lasagna I decided to make a simple but perfect salad. This simple spinach salad wich my younger daughter love to make with me and you can’t image how well the salad and the lasagna go together.
So don’t worry anymore or wonder in every aisle corner, heat over to the freezer section and grab a Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce to enjoy with your family and don’t forget to make my spinach salad.
