Every year we try to come out with different ways to add more nutrients and fiber to our diets, and let me tell you is difficult to keep the promises and sometimes I just give up.
But this year is completely different, I mark my calendar, put my goal and I start working on my diet and my exercise routine.
This recipe is one of my favorites, and let me tell you steel cup oats are underappreciated, these delicious oats are pack with fiber, and excellent to keep you full longer, and have more energy during the day.
I love to make it and add different fruit and flavors, this one, in particular, is cinnamon but you can add vanilla extract, or use almond or coconut milk, there are so many different ways to make, you will never go bored.
So if you are looking for different recipes to add to your list and start your healthy journey, here we have some delicious options just for you.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stouffer’s. The opinions and text are all mine.
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.

What is the one thing you love the most on a holiday weekend? Well I love to spend lots of time with my family and make a delicious breakfast, specially when the day is cool and we can wear our pajamas all day.
In a general term, my family loves to have cinnamon rolls, but they take so much time and by the time they are done my girls already had something else to eat. But I came across a wonderful product the other day during my grocery shopping, cinnamon rolls from Immaculate Baking Co. their amazing products are organic, gluten-free, wholesome products that you can find in you local grocery store, or just click Here. I love how easy they are to use and belive me you can trust 100% in the quality of the products.
I made this cinnamon rolls in a completely different way, so I made a pull apart bread, and it was a hit, everybody love how different and delicious this bread was, the special ingredient of course is the cinnamon rolls and I want to encourage you to check more recipes from Immaculate Baking Company Hereand if you are interested in any one of the recipes just remember that we hae more products you can try.
But don’t forget about my delicious pull apart bread, it has a pumpkin cheese cake kind of filling that is great to make it more in to the season, not only for a great breakfast you can make it to serve as a dessert after a you Thanksgiving dinner.
I love a delicious dinner specially on a Sunday, but what I love the most is a good side dish that complement well with any main dish we are having. Today I’m sharing with you my all time favorite side dish and the best part is, that it can be use as a delicious breakfast or as a snack with a cup of coffee in the afternoon.
But today is all about side dishes, I must say that the tittle of my recipe is a little bit confuse but don’t worry it will make sense soon.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast and the warm water, let it rest for 5 minutes, then on low speed add honey, eggs, and butter, still, on low speed add salt and the flour 1 cup ad the time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Once ready, place the dough in a lightly flour surface, roll out to form a rectangle, then start with the filling, first spread the pumpkin puree and after that sprinkle the cinnamon, brown sugar and the pecans. Roll in the dough and cut in 1" pieces, about 30 small pieces or 22 medium pieces, that is up to you. Place in a grease baking dish. Cover with a towel and let it rise for 20 minutes in a warm place.
Before baking spread some melted butter.
And we are back, yes we are and this time we have the most delicious and sweet cookies inspired by all things Autumn. Yes, the flavors and smells of the most amazing season of the year.
For you today I made a different and easier way to make your cookies fo this season. Perfectly bake and flavor with warm cinnamon and crunchy pecans. These cookies are the best options when you need to make a bunch for a party or a gathering with friends.
I bake the hold batch of cookies on a single cookie sheet, to make it easier and fast for me and for you, I was actually in a little hurry and I need to experiment a little with my cookies, you know sometimes you have to. But the end result is very delicious, just keep in mind that you must cut the cookies when hot, otherwise, it can be too difficult.
One of the best things about fall–in addition to sweaters and football–is all of the delightful seasonal themes that come to mind for baking.
