Adding a Twist to Pasta with Pasilla Chiles

One of my favorite things about cooking is taking a familiar recipe and putting a twist on it. As much as I love tradition, I love to add my own touches to traditions even more. The recipe I am sharing with you today is a twist on a recipe passed on to me from my Nina Margaret. My Nina Margaret is one of the sweetest people (and best cooks) you will ever meet and I think she would enjoy my twist on her recipe.  

When I first read my Nina Margaret's recipe for her famous pasta dish, I was a little bit intimidated because I didn't want to mess with it too much. I had never roasted chiles before and I must admit it was kind of exciting and definitely different from my day to day cooking. 

To make this savory Pasilla Chile Pasta here are the ingredients that you need:

2 Cups of Kraft Natural Cheese Mexican Four Cheese

1 brick of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened)

2 large Pasilla Chiles 

2 tsp Chicken bouillon

 1 large bag of uncooked Pasta 

(I used Egg Noodles)

1 cup of Milk

Boil large pot of water for the noodles. 

Roast the chiles over a flame until the skin blackens. I would have preferred to have roasted the chiles over a real grill, but the stove top flame worked just fine. Set aside.

Once the chiles have cooled, peel the skin from the chiles. 

Open the chiles and remove seeds. (If you like spicy food, then leave the seeds.)

Slice the chiles and saute them in a pan with a drizzle of oil.

Once the chiles are tender, add them to a blender along with the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, chicken bouillon, and milk. Blend until smooth. 

Pour cooked noodles to a casserole dish and add the sauce to cooked noodles. Top with Kraft Natural Mexican Four cheese. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until warmed through.  

This is easily an any day of the week recipe. The few ingredients that you need, including Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Kraft Natural Cheese, are already weekly staples. I love shopping at


 for my weekly groceries, especially in their produce section, everything is always so fresh. 

This dish is a great twist to an everyday pasta side by mixing the roasted Pasilla chiles and Philadelphia Cream Cheese, the flavor is AMAZING!

Perfect for The Big Game Skittles Frozen Yogurt Pops! #SkittlesTourney

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SkittlesTourney #CollectiveBias 

Are sports a big deal in your house? I can guarantee that if there is a major game on, it is on a television in my house. It is fun being a sports fans, especially when it is time for the big game or the tournaments. I've noticed that food and games go hand in hand, but for some reason, the sweet element is always missing. I am changing that up this season, with a fun and kid-approved game time treat: Skittles Frozen Yogurt Pops! 
I have always loved Skittles as a treat and I love having them on hand for my kids. Judge all you want, but I use them as a reward for doing their chores or having a good attitude. They get one of each color if they have been really good and besides having a bowl in front of me when I'm watching the big game, I also like to have a handful at night when I'm up late blogging, like right now. 
This weekend, when doing my monthly shopping at Sam's Club I found the 54 oz bag of Skittles for less than $6, a deal I most certainly couldn't pass up, in fact, I may have bought two bags just to have extra on hand.
I know the rest of the country is in a deep freeze and elbow deep in snow, but here in sunny Southern California we are having 80 degree days and getting ready for the big games coming up. Right around March is when our warm Spring days start and my girls start asking for cooler treats, so I decided to come up with Skittles frozen yogurt pop, as a perfect sweet treat for hanging out and watching the game as a family. 
The recipe is easy as 1-2-3 and even the kids can do it if you are looking for a way to get them to help you out. All you will need is:
Yogurt (any flavor, I used Vanilla), Skittles, Small cups or Popsicle mold, Popsicle sticks

Step 1. Layer 
Yogurt and Skittles until the cup is full.
Step 2. Mix 
Use popsicle stick to mix the Skittles will add color to the yogurt.  
Step 3. Freeze! 
3-4 hours or until Frozen solid. To remove, just give a little twist and pull. 
Mmm... so good and so colorful! The Skittles give the yogurt such a nice rainbow color and flavor, as you lick away the yogurt the Skittles add a nice surprise to the texture and give you a sweet bite. The best part, because you are making such small pops, there are really only a small handful of Skittles in each pop, it's not an overload of sweetness and the yogurt balances the sweet with tart. Yum! 
 The perfect colorful sweet treat, perfect for the big games and tournaments. If you are looking for more fun recipes and ideas, don't forget to Like Skittles on Facebook for fun updates on the Skittles Tourney. Thanks for checking out my sweet game time Skittles treat, don't forget to Pin for later and I love to read your feedback and comments, so now it's your turn.

SoFabU On The Road- Coming to A City Near You!

My journey as a blogger is an ever evolving creative process. I hate to say that blogging is my job because it makes it sound less fun than it really is, but yes, I am happy to report that blogging has now become my source of income. To be clear, I am not rolling in the dough, but I have gone from having zero income to becoming a financially contributing member of my household. I would not be in this position if it weren't for blogging conferences. Blogging conferences are a big part of growing and evolving as a blogger and today I am going to share with you about the SoFabU On The Road conference. 
One thing I love about blogging is that for the most part I get to work on my own. There are some people who love working side by side others, and then there are people, like me, who prefer to work alone. I think this may be why I value conferences so much, they allow me the opportunity to meet new people and connect with people in person who I usually only communicate with online. The moment you get serious about blogging you start to get little tips and tricks here and there on how to improve yourself, one of the most intimidating yet very important blogging tip is to invest in conferences. 
Conferences can be very expensive, especially when they require you to hop on a plane and stay overnight somewhere, and although I hope one day I can find it in my budget to do that, for now I have to stay local. Which is what is amazing about SoFabU On The Road, they are bringing the conferences to you in an 11 city nationwide tour. If you are a blogger, you know that Collective Bias is an amazing group to work with and I am proud to call myself a member of their network of bloggers, Social Fabric. 
When you check the agenda for any conference you will hopefully be very excited by the speakers, panels, and brands that will be in attendance. In this case, the first stop on SoFabU On The Road was Los Angeles, at Speedzone in the City of Industry, with amazing sponsors like Johnny Rockets and speakers, like Alea Milham. As a blogger, listening to Alea speak while taking notes hoping to retain every word that floats out of her brain can be a highlight of someones year, or change their business in a way they didn't even think was possible. This is why a conference like SoFabU On The Road is invaluable.
Now let me tell you why SoFabU On The Road is unique. Since it is a local conference, you will see some familiar faces, and the room isn't big and intimidating, the setting is much more friendly and personal. Also, having Johnny Rockets as a sponsor can help make any day long conference much more enjoyable. On this day, we enjoyed our lunch and heard from the panel of brands while they gave us feedback on what they expect from a blogger-brand relationship and the importance of social media influence. I am still going through my notes from the conference trying to take advantage of all of the information gifted to me. Hopefully, you will be seeing more and more positive changes here.
If you live near one of these cities: Miami, Phoenix, Seattle, Cincinnati, Dallas, New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, or Bentonville, I strongly recommend registering for SoFabU On The Road. Check it out, sign up for the newsletter and see what fun stuff they have in store for you in your area.

(Recipe) Warm Cream Cheese Marshmallow Pastry #TasteTheSeason

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TasteTheSeason #CollectiveBias

For me, the best part of the holiday season is the gathering of family and friends and of course, the baking. The first step in Party Planning, is recipe planning and grocery list making. I love coming up with new ideas and recipes, but I always have to make sure to stay within budget. One of the ways I stay under budget is to buy products I'm familiar with and are already on my regular shopping list and build my recipe around them. Today I'm sharing a recipe for a Warm Cream Cheese- Marshmallow Pastry, oh yeah!
We do a lot of our grocery shopping at Walmart, not only for the convenience, but the prices are definitely budget friendly. We regularly buy and use Kraft products not just for baking, but for everyday use. I have always wanted to use puff pastry and on this shopping trip I found some in the freezer section right next to the cool whip.
For this recipe you will need:

Frozen Puff Pastry
Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Jet Puffed Marshmallows
Bakers Chocolate (Semi-Sweet)
Cool Whip
Kraft Caramel or Strawberries (optional)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Thaw and roll out puff pastry (follow instructions on the box), cut into even amount of squares and separate half. Set aside half of the puff pastry for the tops.  
Step 2: Spread a tablespoon of Philadelphia Cream Cheese in the center, add a Jet Puffed Marshmallow and add a piece of Semi-Sweet Bakers Chocolate. 
Step 3: Top with the other half of the puff pastry and press down along the edges to close. 
Step 4: Bake according to directions on the puff pastry box. For me, it was 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let stand for about a minute, the warmer the better.
Step 5: While the pastries are baking, melt Semi-Sweet Bakers Chocolate in a double boiler for the drizzle.
Step 6: Top with Cool Whip, sliced strawberries (optional) and drizzle with chocolate!
Step 7: Enjoy! 
If you have never tried cream cheese and marshmallow together, you will not be sorry. Trust me, it is such a treat together, during the Summer, I use melted marshmallows and cream cheese mixed together for a fruit dip. On this trip I accidentally grabbed the Unsweetened Chocolate, so I skipped it for the baking and sweetened and melted it for the drizzle.

One of the ways I have started to make my grocery shopping easier is having a shopping list for my girls to use. When we get the ads in the mail, I let them look through them and cut out what they would like along with the items they know we use all the time and then glue them on their own shopping list. I have created a blank shopping list for you to download and print available here.

Make Thanksgiving Easy This Year

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Feast4All

It's so easy to get overwhelmed by the holiday hustle with shopping, cooking, decorating and hosting, I have been looking for a way to make my life just a little bit easier. This year I am enlisting the help of Nestle so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time entertaining my friends and family. Recently while shopping at Walmart I discovered Stouffer's Mac & Cheese Party Size Entree and thought this would be a great time saver to help make this Thanksgiving an easy meal, not an all day showdown in the kitchen. Not only is their Mac & Cheese delicious, it comes in party size, perfect for feeding 6-8 people. But then I thought, how can I make it more interesting?

It's true, Mac & Cheese is delicious all by itself, but I wanted to make it even better by adding some delicious toppings to mix in. After I put the Mac & Cheese in the oven to bake for about an hour, I got started on the toppings. Within the time it took for the Mac & Cheese to bake, I cooked a couple packs of bacon until they were crispy, steamed some broccoli florets, sauteed some mushrooms and emptied a container of crispy onions into a bowl.

When it comes to decorating for Fall and Thanksgiving, I am a dollar store lady all the way. I love that I can turn a $1 bag of leaves and stickers into decorative food labels and also decorate my table with items from the dollar store too. 

Everyone loved being able to mix up their Mac & Cheese to make it their own. I loved the broccoli and crispy onions, the kids really loved the bacon and I was able to sneak in some broccoli for them to eat. I was able to sneak in the broccoli since I had a surprise for them for dessert. (Yes, I am the mom who bribes my kids with dessert.)

It's so easy to get lost in the food and fun times over the holidays, so I wanted to make sure to put the word "Thankful" up for everyone to see and have a little reminder about what this day is all about. This way everyone can take a minute and remember what they are thankful for. 

Here is a closeup of my bowl of Mac & Cheese. Although, I only used the crispy onions, bacon, broccoli, and mushrooms, we couldn't help but talk about what other toppings would work well. More veggies would be great, crumbled sausage, or even chorizo. 

I love getting together with my family. Days and months and years go by so fast, it's so important to spend time together with the ones you love. It was great to be able to actually spend time with my family, rather than spending the whole evening cooking in the kitchen. 

Here are some more tips for making the holiday gatherings easier. 

  • Roll out a blank sheet of paper for the kids table or find an activity table cloth like the one I found at Walmart, add a box of crayons or markers for the kiddos to entertain themselves.
  • For dessert, you don't have to go crazy trying to bake something, grab a box of Nestle Drumstick sundae cones. There are so many varieties now, everyone has a favorite, including the new Peppermint and crispety, crunchy, peanut-buttery Butterfinger Drumstick.

Now that you're ready to plan Thanksgiving dinner, when you head out to do your holiday grocery shopping put Mac & Cheese Bar on the list. stop by Walmart and pick up the Stouffer's Mac & Cheese Party Size and Nestle Drumsticks to save yourself some time in the kitchen, and spend more time with the people you care about.

Stay Warm and Save Time with this Slow Cooker Corn Chowder Recipe #ChooseSmart

This shop, #ChooseSmart has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

As much as I love Halloween, I am kinda glad it's over. We finally had some cooler weather and rain this weekend and in this house cooler temps mean cozy food and no more barbecues (besides my husbands traditional Christmas Eve barbecue). The holidays can be such a busy time of year, with all of the running around from store to store, but for me the one place that I like to do all of my grocery shopping for the holidays, is Smart & Final. Keep reading for my yummy Slow Cooker Corn Chowder recipe

My favorite part of Fall is the food, it is the only time of year I can get away with making soups, stews and chowders in my house. Today I am sharing my slow cooker corn chowder recipe. For me, life is easier when you can just throw everything together and forget about it until later. This is the perfect recipe for those busy days when you just don't have time to stand over the stove and oven for dinner or those cozy days that just want to be spent watching movies. 

Do you shop at Smart & Final? This warehouse store makes every day shopping and holiday shopping so easy and affordable. Their home brands are easily half the price of their competitor and are great quality. The holiday season is the best time to save as much as possible. 

All of my ingredients for this recipe fit in a small basket, were First Street brand, and cost under $30.

Here is my yummy Slow Cooker Corn Chowder recipe:


1 lb First Street Bacon

1 stick of First Street Unsalted Butter

1 Large Brown Onion

8-10 Medium Golden potatoes

2  (3 lb) Cans of First Street Chicken Broth 

*I only use 1 1/2 cans for the recipe

1 1/2 cups of First Street Half & Half

1/4 cup First Street Corn Starch (not pictured)

3 cups of First Street Frozen Whole Kernel Golden Corn

4 cups of First Street Mild Cheddar

Salt and Pepper to taste

Before you start chopping, set your slow cooker to high to get it nice and hot and now get ready to chop. 

1. Start by chopping the bacon to 1 inch pieces and cook until crispy. Remove from drippings and set aside for later. 

2. Add the stick of butter to the hot crock pot to melt. 

3. Dice the large Brown Onion and add to butter, cook until translucent. 

4. Add the 1/4 cup of corn starch to the butter and onions and mix well. It will be thick. 

5. Next add the chicken broth, slowly at first while whisking the corn starch. Continue to add all of the broth. 

6. Peel and chop the potatoes and add to the slow cooker. 

7. Add 1 1/2 cups of Half & Half and Frozen Corn. Stir to mix.

Now, walk away. Depending on how long you will be away, you can set to low or high and when you are ready to serve, mix in the cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

I know you were wondering what you were going to do with that yummy bacon, well here it is. Serve yourselves a warm bowl of your fresh corn chowder and add the bacon crumbles and maybe some chopped chives to the top. Serve and enjoy. 

What I love about this recipe is that you can completely prepare ahead of time and just throw it all together when you're ready. I like to sit and peel then chop the potatoes, onions and bacon at the same time. After that, you can mostly throw it all together. 

Another note for this recipe is that you can substitute and add whatever you have on hand. If you don't have bacon, chop some ham and throw it in there, or instead of corn, add frozen broccoli. If you don't have mild cheddar, throw in Monterrey Jack cheese or a mixture. The next time you're at

Smart & Final

keep in mind you can pay half price if you buy their First Street products. 

Enjoy holiday cooking (and eating) this year!

Creating Our Own Fun with the Best Toys #TargetToys

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone, I seriously love #TargetToys.

Target is my happy place. There, I've said it. You can find me at my Target 2-3 times a week, with a smile on my face. And just like most other moms, I try my hardest to avoid the toy section just to avoid the inevitable fight and mom guilt. Thankfully, Target has the best toys to help your kids use their imagination and create their own toys, both in store and online. You can visit the Target Toy Emporium (available online) for some great brands that are designed to specifically help children explore, discover, be active, imagine, create and build. These are the most fun parts of childhood. 

Check out what we bought at Target, created and played with at home. 
We bought these fun Racing Wind Cars from Kiwi Crate to build and race at home and had a blast doing it. You know what I love about these type of toys? I love how proud my girls look when they've completed something on their own (with a little help from their mama of course). 
This kit from Kiwi Crate was perfect because it included enough supplies to make two. When you have two little ones, very close in age, this is very important. The age range on this activity is between 4-8 years old, but I had fun racing them too.
My oldest daughter was very excited to get started on this activity. I seriously have created a monster, a crafting monster. All this little one wants to do is make things, just like her mama. She doesn't just see a blank piece of paper, she sees a future paper airplane. 
You can check out the video tutorial I created for a step by step on how we created our fun wind cars, but for now, here are just a few peeks at all the fun we had. My littlest was STOKED when she realized decorating with stickers was the first step.  
I love to see the smile on their faces when they feel a sense of accomplishment. She was so proud seeing her car come together before her eyes and with her own hands. Creativity is something that should always be nurtured, especially in a day and age when art is put on the back burner. The crafts and toys found in Target's Toy Emporium (available online) do just that. 
As basic as the materials are in this kit, it makes for a fun and interesting afternoon not spent in front of the TV. This would make a great indoor or rainy day activity to have on hand or stock up on. Don't forget to take advantage of all the savings that Target has to offer with the Red Card and the Cartwheel app.

Make sure to check out our tutorial on Instagram below. 
So fun right? Just another reason to love Target and their online Toy Emporium

Quick Easy Meals for Summer Fun! #ComidasFaciles #CollectiveBias

This shop, #ComidasFaciles has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

You know what the fun part about Summer is? For me, it's the freedom to do things you can't get away with during the school year. Luckily for my girls, they totally get to benefit from Mama saying "Yes" to everything. 
"Mom, can we wear our princess dresses?" Sure. "Mom, can we put on makeup?" Yeah, go ahead. "Mom, can we eat outside in our playhouse?" Umm... Sure. Even though I am saying yes to all of this fun stuff, what my girls aren't seeing is that I am sneaking in rules and nutrition into these summer meals where I can. Yes, they can wear their princess dresses, but first they have to put their laundry away. Yes, they can eat outside in the playhouse, they can even have their favorite Kraft Easy Mac N Cheese, but I am going to sneak in some nutrition where I can.

Share a Coke with a Coke Float! #ShareitForward #shop

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

During our trip to Walmart the other day we noticed something awesome on the Coke bottles. First we noticed they said "Friends" and "Family" and then we noticed the names. Almost every name you could think of, except our names of course.
How cool is that? Actually if you don't find your name in the store, you can search for it on the Coke Bottle Name List. While there, you can also send a virtual personalized bottle to someone or find the traveling kiosk. 
Look at all of those names! Do you see a familiar name?

Summer is here and my girls and I are loving being able to stay up later, sleep in and stay in our PJs without rushing to school. But, the one thing my girls definitely miss about school is seeing their friends. You would think it would be easy to set up play dates, but all of us Moms have such different schedules, with work and vacations, it hasn't been easy. 

My oldest daughter just finished her first year at school and I felt very lucky that she made such a good friend from a wonderful family. Sadly, her friend will be moving away this Summer and they won't be at the same school anymore. Thanks to texting, her friends Mom and I were able to catch up on our lives, since we don't see each other during drop off and pick up and ended up scheduling a play date! 
Our girls are not old enough to be soda drinkers yet, so I knew when I introduced them to Coke Floats it was going to have to be a special day! And of course, they were super excited! It was like the greatest thing in the world that they can have Soda, Ice Cream and Whipped Cream all at the same time.

All of the kids had a great time playing and catching up while having a Coke Float as a cool treat. This is the perfect way to Share a Coke with friends! How will you Share a Coke? Walmart is giving you the opportunity to Share a Coke nationwide on July 6, 2014. Bring your family and friends to a Walmart near you and share a moment, while sharing a Coca Cola!

Easy Big Game Recipes for the Kids! #GolazoKraft #shop

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. However, all photos and opinions are my own.

Most days of the week I cook dinner for a very hungry family of six, four adults and two kids. Almost every single dinner that I cook has a protein, starch, and vegetable, with a glass of milk. I am proud to say that I was raised this way and continue this tradition with my family. But times have changed, sometimes we do a family cookout or summer grilling. Occasionally I stray from the traditional menu and even have days where we have breakfast for dinner (this was never allowed when I was growing up.) I am a busy stay at home mom and sometimes I need a break. Sometimes, I need dinner to be easy. On these days, I always reach for my Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. The kids love it, they see it as a treat, and I see it as easy. Sometimes I'll sneak in some chopped up hot dog or steamed broccoli and the plates are always licked clean. 
Another tradition that I am proud to say we participate in, is sitting at the table as a family every night for dinner. However, there are some days that call for ease. The days when our eyes are glued to the TV for the Championship Soccer Games, we need something easy and mess free. Something we can eat while completely distracted! So, here it is, a quick, easy and delicious recipe for Kraft's Macaroni & Cheese burrito. #GolazoKraft
Oh yes. This one is so easy to make and really, you can add almost anything to Macaroni & Cheese and have success. I chose to add seasoned ground turkey and then wrapped it up in a burrito. And, what better to pair an easy dinner with than the new clear bottom Capri Sun. 
The other day we were lucky enough to catch the Summer Soccer Grilling Event at Walmart while shopping for our ingredients. My girls had fun playing the games and trying samples before shopping. Walmart always has such great deals. This day I picked up the value packs of  both Kraft's Macaroni & Cheese and Capri Sun. More bang for our buck! 

Here is a picture of the ingredients I used. I know you probably have most of this stuff on hand, that makes it so much easier. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, Ground Turkey, Taco Seasoning, and Tortillas. 
Go ahead and Pin this photo for safe keeping! 
Check out this super easy breakdown:
Brown the ground turkey and add the taco seasoning.
Follow the easy steps on the box for Macaroni & Cheese.
Warm a tortilla, then layer the Macaroni & Cheese and Ground Turkey. Wrap and enjoy!
Ooh yeah! I have two very normal girls that are not very adventurous when it comes to trying new foods. This one, they loved! 

Check out this Flipagram I posted on my Instagram that shows how easy this recipe is to make.
