Garden Rice #SundaySupper

Garden Rice #SundaySupper

One of the things the I love the most during summer time is that we can find lots of fresh veggies and fruits, and I love to make also lots of easy recipes with all these fresh vegetables.
I know what area you thinking, I live in California and most of the time we can find fresh fruit and veggies, and you are right but summer has the most delicious products and this is a great occasion to make the most out of them.

And this recipe has some of the products I use the most during this time, carrots and celery are delicious complements for the rice and it give it that fresh test and a beautiful color.

I love to use parboil rice, this rice is very easy to make and the consistency is very loose, the grain is strong so it keeps a nice shape no matter what you add to it.

Love this types of side dishes, and this rice is a great complement to a delicious piece of pork or beef. Hope you enjoy it.

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.

#veranosutter #summervino #moscato

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.

cooking rice #summervino #veranosutter

And no, dulce de leche is not the same as caramel, so I’m sorry, this is a must for the recipe, but you can find it, I’m sure, besides, you will see how the flavor of the Sutter Home Moscato complements perfectly with the Arroz con Leche, is a match made for perfection.

almost ready to eat #veranosutter #summervino

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

This month for the #TheLeftoversClub I want it to send and make something different and change the theme a little, no cookies this month, so for my friend Faye Rodriguez I make delicious and super easy Orange Fudge.

Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.

I just hope she likes it as much as we love it. And let me know how many pieces of this fudge will you eat.

Tilapia al Horno #SummerVino #ad #CollectiveBias

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 Home ya 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.

#summervino Sutter Home

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.

directions #summervino #mycolectiva

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.

Tita’s Fruit Dessert #SundaySupper

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.
