Nestle La Lechera Review and Giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to try Nestle La Lechera products. I got a cool basket with products and gifts.

The basket I received included some regular condensed milk and also some Nestle La Lechera dulce de leche condensed milk. It also included several recipe cards. After looking at several of the recipes, I decided to make a Dulce de Leche flan.

Now, when I was little my mom and abuelita made flan all the time.

It was a staple in our house. They used to make me eat it but I never liked it. I always thought it was too sweet and I also thought it had a weird wiggly texture that I couldn't stomach.

As I grew up, I never ate it again and, thus, never learned how to make a good flan. So, in honor of my granny, I decided to make a flan at least one time in my life.

I love to bake but I stick with the easy peasy stuff like cakes and cookies. When it comes to more involved baking, I prefer to just go buy it. Baking requires exact measurements and being technical, something I am not known for. But luckily, the La Lechera flan recipe was pretty easy.

Basically, you caramelize some sugar for the topping. Then the recipe
called for mixing 2 cans of Nestle condensed milk and one can of the Dulce de Leche with 6 eggs. This is where it got wonky because once I blended it, it looked pretty watery but since I had no idea what I was doing, I went with it.


I put the caramelized sugar on the bottom of the ramekins that came in the basket and then added the mixture. I then cooked it in a bain-marie (water bath) for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes, it was done.

I am not flan expert so I can only hope it came out right. I have to say that it was actually quite delish and I liked it. I think the dulce de leche condensed milk made the difference because it gave it a very rich taste.

One a side note, I have to say that if someone gave me a spoon and a can
of the La Lechera dulce de leche, I could eat the whole can by myself with nothing else. It was so delicious.

For my first ever flan in 47 years, mine was pretty darn good. Hubby and mother in law enjoyed it as well. So I have to give a thumbs up to La Lechera for helping me make my first flan!

Thanks to Nestle La Lechera, I have a basket like I received for one lucky reader. The La Lechera Holiday Flan gift basket includes Nestle La Lechera’s sweetened condensed milk and dulce de leche products, a $25 Visa gift card, a set of ceramic ramekins and a disposable digital camera! Woo. Let me tell you this is a fantastic little prize.

The way I look at it is that if I can make a flan, anyone can. This is the perfect prize for the upcoming holidays! So what are you waiting for? Enter on the Rafflecopter widget and good luck.

Drano Snake Plus Review and Giveaway!



The problem we have at my house is my hair. It is long, thick and wavy. When I shower, it tends to fall out and get stuck in the drain. My hair along with the shampoo and soap always clog up the shower.

I am not kidding when I saw that we should buy stock in Drano because we use it all the time. When I received the opportunity to review the new
Drano® Snake Plus kit, I was so excited because I knew this is a product we could use.

The Drano Snake Plus combines an easy-to-use 18-inch flexible tool with a powerful pro concentrate gel which clings directly to the clog and helps dissolve it away.

Drano® Snake Plus is also easy to use:

* Insert the 18-inch flexible tool into the drain opening and move the tool up and down to better loosen the clog, then remove and discard the tool.
* Pour the entire bottle of Drano® Pro Concentrate Gel down the drain and let the powerful formula help dissolve the solution for 30 minutes.
* Flush the drain with hot water to free the drain of any remaining clogged materials.

I thought the snake was going to be a little weird to use and it was but once I got it down the shower drain and started wiggling it, it was easy. When I pulled it up, it had a bunch of my long hair attached to it. Ooky! But I knew that meant it was working.

I put in the gel and then washed it down with hot water about half hour later. The shower drain was clear! I cannot tell you how great that was. It was so easy that even I could figure it out.

I wouldn't use this for our regular vanity sinks because they do not get so clogged up but I would on the tougher clogs we get in the shower. The snake really helps getting the grunge out. You cannot use the Drano on toilets.

Drano Snake Plus is available for purchase in the home cleaning sections of food, drug, do-it-yourself and mass-merchandise stores such as Target, Walmart and CVS.

I have one kit for one lucky reader to try on his/her drain. You know the drill!

Give the Gift of Disney Magic ~ D23 Silver Membership Giveaway!



I have been a Disney fan since I was little. We lived in Los Angeles and every year we were lucky enough to visit Disneyland a few times a year. When we had visitors from Costa Rica come to our home the first thing they all wanted to do was visit Disneyland. We loved when visitors came!

When I moved to Florida and, subsequently, met my husband we began visiting Disney World a few times a year. We loved visiting. We tried to go to every resort and get on every ride. People forget that Disney is just not for kids. Disney has so much to offer us "big kids" as well.

What we love most about Disney is that there is so much for us to do. We loved gong to the parks and enjoying the rides but we also loved seeing the shows. The resorts are great. As wannabe foodies, we really enjoyed visiting the restaurants and having a gourmet meal with some delicious wine. We also loved going for the spa services as well.

Now that we live in North Carolina, we rarely have the chance to visit as much as we would like. It is harder for us to get our Disney fix. Luckily, Disney offers us Disney Lovers the opportunity to keep up with everything Disney through the D23 - Official Disney Fan Club.

D23 is the world’s only official Disney fan club. What is the significance of D23? It is named for the year that Walt Disney left Kansas City and headed for Hollywood and founded what would become the Disney Studios.

D23 offers its members a multitude of benefits including the Disney twenty three magazine. Benefits also include special events, a wonderful website, complimentary gifts, special discounts and much more.

Here's are just some of the wonderful exclusive benefits offered to its D23 members:

Disney twenty-three magazine ~ D23's stunning, over sized, quarterly publication that is available with all D23 Gold memberships

Member-exclusive gifts ~ Four times a year, Gold-level D23 Members receive a free gift with each issue of Disney twenty-three. Each free gift is a collectible surprise that celebrates Disney

Membership Card and Certificate ~ You receive a membership card and personalized, suitable-for-framing member certificate features Donald Duck hand drawn by Disney Legend-and the voice of Donald!-Tony Anselmo.

Annual Member gift
~ Each new and renewing D23 Member receives a special collectible gift from The Walt Disney Archives Collection

D23 Special Benefits and Offers ~ D23 Members can save hundreds of dollars by presenting their D23 Membership cards at select retailers, restaurants and attractions throughout the country

D23 Website ~ In-depth features and exclusive articles about Disney’s past, present and future, plus breaking news and special features from the Walt Disney Archives are highlights of the D23 website

Special Member-Only events ~ Events can include tours of the Walt Disney Studios Lot and Archives to a signature event at Walt Disney World, special film screenings, and many other events throughout the year, only D23 Members have the opportunity to enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences created just for them! (This is my favorite benefit!)

D23 Expo ~ The D23 Expo brings the entire world of Disney under one roof and is the “ultimate Disney fan event” and D23 Members can purchase special ticket discounts and receive exclusive access to this amazing event!


The Gold Membership is only $74.99 and the Silver Membership is $34.99. This is a great deal because you have Disney at your fingertips any time you like. Plus, the memberships come with a beautiful exclusive D23 Mickey Mouse watch!

This would make a perfect gift for any Disney Fan in your life! This is also a great gift to give to those "big kids" on your Christmas list who have everything. It is a unique and special gift that can be used all year-round!


This year, I am dropping hints all over the house that I would love a membership into D23. If hubby doesn't get it, I might have to get him a membership for Christmas! It would be amazing to be able to attend special Disney events and the D23 Expo!

So remember, if you have a Disney fan on your list you should really look into giving them a D23 Membership. Who doesn't want the Gift of Disney Magic any time of the year?

Thanks to Disney, I have a D23 Silver Membership  to give away to one of my wonderful readers! All you have to do is follow the entry rules to enter. Please be patient for the Rafflecopter widget to load.

Eagle Brand Sweet Secret Recipe and Essay Contest! Ends December 7, 2011!


If you have the skills to create a fantastic recipe using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk then this contest is for you! I wish I had more talent in creating recipes because this sounds like a great opportunity plus you can win $10,000!! Holy cow, that is so awesome.

According to the Eagle Brand® survey conducted by Kelton Research, 95 percent of surveyed Americans agree a secret ingredient can change an entire dish. For nearly a third of surveyed bakers, that secret is sweetened condensed milk, as 32 percent of respondents typically keep sweetened condensed milk on hand in their pantry. To help share this secret, the maker of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is launching the Eagle Brand Sweet Secret Recipe and Essay Contest with a chance to win $10,000 towards a “sweet secret” wish.

Now through December 7, 2011 (SO HURRY), home bakers are invited to enter the “Sweet Secret” contest by submitting an original dessert recipe – along with an essay of 100 words or less describing why Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is the “sweet secret” ingredient in the recipe. You can enter in English or Spanish! WOO!! All you have to so is submit a delicious dessert recipe using at least one 14-ounce can of any variety of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk in one of five categories - fudge, cheesecake, pie, cookie bar or other.

“Sharing recipes is a great way to start new traditions among friends and families,” said Maribeth Badertscher, Vice President, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. “The ‘Sweet Secret’ contest was inspired by the many ways Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk plays a role in memorable holiday traditions, and we are excited to celebrate the holiday baking season by sharing the most creative entries with everyone.”

Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is the go-to sweet secret ingredient for preparing countless holiday recipes. It is a special blend of milk and sugar that can be used to create a foolproof “base” for a variety of desserts. When combined with acidic fruit juice, such as lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk thickens – without heating – to form velvety pie fillings, puddings and other desserts. It also caramelizes evenly and easily – just empty in saucepan, heat and stir per directions on can.

I wish my mom lived here in the United States because she would be all over this! She always used condensed milk in so many recipes. How I wish I would have learned them because $10,000 is nothing to sneeze at! 

The Eagle Brand Sweet Secret Recipe and Essay Contest ends on December 7, 2011. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 years and older. Void where prohibited. For details and complete Official Rules, visit www.EagleBrand.com or www.MarcaEagle.com.

  EL INGREDIENTE SECRETO, ¡OBVIO!
El afortunado ganador del Concurso de Ensayos y Recetas de Dulces Secretos de Eagle Brand® recibirá $10,000 para cumplir su Dulce Deseo Secreto



 ¡Se ha develado el secreto! Según la encuesta de Eagle Brand® realizada por Kelton Research, el 95 por ciento de los estadounidenses encuestados reconocen que un ingrediente secreto puede cambiar un plato por completo. Para casi un tercio de los panaderos encuestados, ese secreto es la leche condensada azucarada, como lo demuestra el 32 por ciento de los participantes que siempre tienen leche condensada azucarada en sus despensas. Para divulgar el secreto, el elaborador de la leche condensada Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk lanza el Concurso de ensayos y recetas de dulces secretos de Eagle Brand® que nos brinda la oportunidad de ganar $10,000 para hacer realidad un dulce deseo secreto.



Desde ahora hasta el 7 de diciembre de 2011, invitamos a los panaderos aficionados a participar en el concurso “Dulces Secretos” enviando una receta de postre original, junto con un ensayo de 100 palabras o menos que describa por qué la leche condensada Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk es el ingrediente “dulce secreto” de la receta, en inglés a www.EagleBrand.com o en español a www.MarcaEagle.com. Los participantes pueden enviar sus deliciosas recetas de postre, que incluyan una lata de 14 onzas—como mínimo—de cualquier variedad de leche condensada Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, e ingresarlas en cualquiera de las cinco categorías: caramelo blando, cheesecake, pastel, barrita u otro.

Su combinación especial de leche y azúcar hace que este producto pueda ser utilizado como una base infalible en una variedad de postres. Al mezclarla con jugo de frutas ácidas, como el jugo de limón, la leche condensada se espesa—sin necesidad de calentarla—para convertirse en un relleno aterciopelado para pasteles, pudines y otros postres. Otra de sus ventajas es la facilidad con la que se carameliza  adquiriendo una textura homogénea. Para comprobarlo, solo basta con verter el contenido de una lata en una cacerola y seguir las instrucciones en la lata.

Coffee Stack Review! Organize your K-Cups!!

I love my Keurig. Unfortunately, we have no counter space in our house and with our new toaster oven, the Keurig was sent into a cabinet. I really missed it. Then one day at work me and my co-worker were wanting coffee and I came up with a brilliant idea: I would bring the Keurig to work.

It is the perfect place for it. Usually when I get to work, the coffee is gone. It is also in another building. If I want some coffee in the afternoon, I had to drive out to Wendy's or the local coffee shop and pick some up.
Now I can have coffee, tea or even hot chocolate whenever I want it. I had the perfect place for it as well. It sits on my shelves in my office. I also brought all my K-cups as well. I had boxes of beverages that I had to pile on top of my shelves at work. It was looking a little messy but we do not have that much space.

Then I got an email that introduced me to the Coffee Stack. The Coffee Stack is a little cabinet that holds K-Cups. It is specifically designed to free up space on kitchen counters or work shelves in my case.

The Coffee Stack holds 40 K-cups. The only problem I have with my Coffee Stack is that the bottom drawer is a little wonky. But the people at Youcopia did mention this to me and have said that the problem had been corrected in the newer models.

Aside from that, I love it. It allowed me to get rid of the boxes filled with K-cups and have enough on hand so everyone who uses my Keurig can enjoy hot beverages at any time.

It is easy to use. You just pull out the drawer and pop in the K-cup. It also looks good. My co-workers loved it as well because they bring in their own flavors now and add them to the Coffee Stack. It also has non-skid rubber feet so it sits safely on any surface. Besides the issue of the wonky drawer, this is a great product for anyone who uses K-cups.

YouCopia also makes the Spice Stack. I have to tell you I have seen the Spice Stack so many times on TV and have wanted to order one. I know now that if it is like the Coffee Stack then I really need to get one soon!

I love organizational products that make my life easier. Coffee Stack is available at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores, as well as through CoffeeStack.com. The Spice Stack line is currently sold at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores, and well as through SpiceStack.com.

Coffee Stack is available at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores, as well as through CoffeeStack.com. The Spice Stack line is currently sold at Bed Bath & Beyond and other retail stores, and well as through SpiceStack.com.

This is a great product to gift this Christmas! If you want to purchase a Coffee Stack or Spice Stack, go to their site and use the code Caro20 to receive 20% off any purchase (expires 12/31/11). Trust me, if you have a messy spice cabient or your K-cups are out of control this is a product you need!

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review & Giveaway!


I had never heard of Pine Bros. Throat Drops although they have been around for quite a while and now they are back. When I was contacted to do a review, I agreed because I am always in search of new products. With winter coming, I thought it was also wise to have some products on hand that might help us out if we get sick.

I received two flavors of Pine Bros. Throat Drops to review: Natural Honey and Wild Cherry. They came at the right time because I was a little under the weather this past week. I was able to try them and they were great.

The label says they are "softish". They look like gummy candy so I assumed I would be able to chew them but I wasn't. They are softish but not so much that they are chewy. They were also very good. They were are very tasty yet not too sweet.

My favorite flavor was the Natural Honey because it does taste like honey not just honey flavor. The Wild Cherry is delicious as well. These are so good that I am now addicted to them. I took a "puck" (what they call their little package) to work and finished them in 2 days.

I would definitely recommend these when you are sick. They soothed my throat and I didn't leave that medicine aftertaste in my mouth. I know I have my stash ready when the flu or a cold strikes! I am glad I was able to discover this "new" product because it is one that I will continue using.

Thanks to the great peeps at Pine Bros. I have a giveaway!! One lucky reader will win a Pine Bros. Prize Pack that includes:

8 pucks of our Natural Honey Flavor
8 pucks of our Wild Cherry Flavor
CVS gift card for $25
Pine Bros reusable shopping bag
CVS green bag tag

Awesome!!! Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below and you might win this awesome prize pack.

Prime Rib Roast - Our Holiday Tradition

SheSpeaksbutton

When I first met my husband, we started our own traditions. After 17 years, we still continue them. One of those traditions is having a Prime Rib Roast for the holidays.

It is a little pricey but well worth the price. When I first made my first prime rib roast, I overcooked it. The next year, I undercooked. The third year, it was perfect and from then on I have been able to perfect the recipe as time has gone on.

Making prime rib roast looks difficult but it is probably one of the easiest recipes around.

Holiday Prime Rib Roast

Ingredients:
Standing Rib Roast (3 to 5 ribs)
Pensey's English Rib Rub
Salt and Pepper
6 to 8 garlic cloves

Directions:
Bring Rib roast to room temperature and pat down with paper towels
Make a few slits in the meat and place garlic cloves in the rib roast
Rub the roast with the Penzey spice and salt and pepper
Turn oven to 450°-500° F
Place roast with the fatty side up on a roasting pan
Cook on high heat for 15 minutes then turn ven down to 350°F
Cooking time is based on weight. Allow 15 minutes per pound.
Always use a thermometer to check doneness:  115°-120°F for rare or 125°-130°F for medium.  

Remove from oven and let rest for about 20 minutes.

See how easy it is. It is also delicious. We usually serve our rib roast with mashed potatoes and homemade gravy. Also a roasted veggie and Yorkshire Pudding. Yummo!

I am submitting my recipe to the Macy's Recipe Share contest on Facebook. You can also participate as well. If you have a favorite holiday recipe, you can win some great prizes and have your recipe featured! Head on over to the Macy's Recipe Share site. Click on the Recipe Share tab. Submit your recipe.

Windex Turns 75 Review and Giveaway! *Rafflecopter*


For more than 75 years, Windex®, has been America's No. 1 Glass Cleaner. I know that in my household it is the only window cleaner we buy. We have tried others but we always come back to Windex.

My mother used Windex as did my grandmother. I continue buying Windex because it works. Over the years the formula has improved and it keeps getting better.
I had the opportunity to try Windex Original, Windex Multi-Surface Vinegar and the Windex Electronic Wipes.
Windex Original was the same as usual. It was great quality and cleaned all my mirrors without leaving streaks. The Windex Multi-Surface Vinegar was great as well. I tried it on my granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms and it cleaned up really well.

My favorite Windex product was the electronic wipes. My computer is always dirty and the screen gets so dusty. These wipes were so good. I wiped down the computer screen and it is sparkling clean now. I will continue buying these and keeping them at work as well.

To celebrate its 75th birthday, Windex® is looking back through history and inviting families to share their tried and true traditions and shining moments on the brand's Facebook page. So head on over and share your story.


If you want to win a prize pack of the products I received, you can enter here! I am using Rafflecopter so be patient as it loads!
