  • #ad I love to bake and create in the kitchen. Especially during the holidays. Growing up, I remember my mom and aunts always being in the kitchen whipping up something delicious at every party and family get together. Now it’s my turn. I’m the one in the kitchen whipping up delicious treats while my kids are running in to help or help sample the desserts. 
One treat I look forward to this time of year is a delicious glass of Coquito. If you’ve never had it or heard of it, it’s a Puerto Rican Coconut Nog. Think of it like an eggnog type drink without eggs and made with coconut and NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA®  Sweetened Condensed Milk instead). It’s delicious but with the addition of rum, it’s not something the littles can enjoy.

So I make it without the rum so everyone can enjoy it. But I also love to use La Lechera in other recipes, like these Spice Cupcakes with Coquito Whipped Cream. Y’all this is SO good! 
When I first made these, everyone devoured them in minutes. Now it’s one of my most requested holiday recipes! 
La Lechera is the perfect ingredient when I want to get creative in the kitchen and whip up special treats like this Coquito Whipped Cream.

Truthfully, this time of year, I’m using the homemade Coquito Whipped Cream on everything! It’s amazing on a class of NESTLÉ® ABUELITA Hot Chocolate too! After a cold day, this might be my favorite way to warm up! 
All you need is 1 pint of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup of Coquito made with La Lechera Sweetened Condensed milk (grab the recipe on my blog) and 3/4 confectioners sugar.

Chill your bowl in the fridge for 15-30 minutes before you start making your whipped cream. Once it’s chilled, add in whipping cream, Coquito and using the whipping attachment on your mixer, mix on high for 3-5 minutes. Once it starts to thicken, add in confectioners sugar and beat on high another 3-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. 
Spoon whipped cream into a pipping bag and pipe on top of hot chocolate, cupcakes, use it to frost a cake or eat it right from a spoon! Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve! You can find everything you need, including the @lalecherausa right at your local @Walmart!

  • #ad After a busy day, there’s nothing I want more than to sit down to a relaxing dinner with the family.  The reality is that I don’t always want to cook that meal. That’s why I make sure to stock my freezer full of @michel_angelos frozen meals from @Walmart. The premium, slow crafted authentic Italian meals are made with ingredients I can pronounce and find right in my own kitchen. 
The homemade taste means it’s a dinner my whole family will love and less time cooking in the kitchen means I can focus on creating memories with the ones who mean the most. 
The authentic Italian-style recipes and kitchen-crafted meals made with wholesome, simple ingredients specially selected and cooked to bring out their full flavor. Michael Angelo's doesn't make any compromises, and they don't use artificial preservatives, flavors or colors for full, vibrant, homemade tastes in every bite.

These easy, family-favorite and single-serve meals are ready in minutes. They pair perfectly with a fresh salad and  some homemade garlic bread. Grab a loaf of bread, some butter and fresh garlic. Spread onto bread and place under broiler for 3-5 minutes. 
Find these Michael Angelo's Meals in the freezer section of Walmart and take the stress out of dinner time so you can relax and enjoy the moments that matter most. #KitchenCraftedItalian
  • Have you ever stayed at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa? This was our first time staying here and OMG I’ve been missing out all these years. 
Not only was this resort stunning, but the food was superb, the location on Bay Lake makes it a great spot for fishing and it’s on the Monorail. 
I’ve been spoiled and I don’t know how I’ll stay anywhere else when visiting Disney now!

  • We’ve traveled to so many new and fabulous places this year but there’s just something about Disney that feels like home. I can’t think of a better place to wind down an amazing year of travel than our trip to @waltdisneyworld 
Disney at the holidays might just be my new favorite tradition.

What’s your favorite time of year to visit Disney? •
