We are in the hype of the holiday season and this month we have to have some extra goodies for the unexpected guest we have around the house. But luckily for me, I have the perfect solution I always have on hand Golden Crisp Caramel Bites, yummy, all the way.
I enjoy making different kinds of goodies and take them to our school for the teachers to have on hand and to enjoy on their break. And I also love to make this bites to take to the movies and enjoy it with the family. But definitely the best part is just to make it with the help of my girls, this is a great treat to make with the kiddos and having the best time building memories.
To make the bites I decided to change the ingredients a bit, and I decided to pick up Golden Crisp® Cereal as my main ingredient and of course the basic ingredient for the recipe, after all, this is an all cereal treat.
So why not start a great and delicious tradition this December and make with your kids or your loved ones this caramel bites, I’m sure they would enjoy every single piece of it and you never know, even the person that doesn’t like sweets so much will learn to have a very sweet spot every Christmas for this little bites.

Golden Crisp Caramel Bites #SINGMovie #ad
Delicious little bites, perfect for the holiday season or to enjoy a family movie.
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.

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.
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.
I encourage you to make this recipe, let me know if you love it and don’t forget to Uncork the Moments, and try Sutter Home Wines, they will be your new go-to to any occasion.

In a pot on medium-low heat, cook the rice with the water, cinnamon stick, and cloves, until it doubles in size, about 15 minutes. Add milk, evaporated milk, butter, and nutmeg, continue cooking, simmer for 15 minutes and move constantly.

Once ready and all the ingredients are well combine, let it cool completely, this will make the rice absorb the extra liquid and make it more rich and creamy.
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.

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.

When it comes to our mornings, let me tell you that they are super busy and as my mom use to said nothing better than a “pancita llena” or nothing better than a full tummy before going to school.
And this is one of the reasons I want to share with you this super, super easy option for breakfast.
If you have some Eggo waffles in your freezer, this is the time to go ahead and try this recipe and if you don’t have them, don’t worry, just go to a near Target and buy all the kinds and different flavors you can find. I love Target is like my second home, I go there every week and I always find something new and different and of course is where I buy all my Kellogg’s products for this back to school. Be sure to check out Kellogg’s Back to School packaging and great on-pack offers in store at Target!
Ok, back to the recipe, I will list the ingredients later but first let me tell you a little more; I love to serve my girls different options for breakfast every morning, and this sweet option is nothing but delicious. The first ingredient you need and is crucial to this recipe is Dulce De Leche, no caramel, a good Latina mom always have Dulce de Leche in the pantry, this is a most, and of course the Eggo Waffles and some fruit.
I recommend to use your kids favorite fruit and involve them in the making, this is very easy so it will only going to take about 5 minutes to make this breakfast. They will love it, but if you don’t have a lot of time, just make it your self and make one for you too, and have a quick family breakfast with the kiddos.
The mornings are crazy for everybody but this doesn’t mean that you can not enjoy an great breakfast with your family. This great moments are the ones your kids will remember forever and they will continue this practice with their on families as well.
Heat up the waffles, check the package instructions.
Add a tablespoon of dulce de leche to each waffle.
Place fruit in one side of the waffle and close with the other side, forming the "empanada".
Pour a little more of dulce de leche on top, if desire.
I use my girls favorite fruit, but you can use any kind of fruit you like. I made one for each but you can made more, this is great if you have a small party for the kids, as a breakfast buffet.
