Twist on Tradition with Nestle El Mejor Nido and All You Magazine!
When the CQ Stacy told me that we had been chosen by Nestle to test drive their new recipes, Twist on Tradition I was super excited. Having grown up with both American and Latin American products from Nestle they are a brand that I trust, love and that I now give to my own family and recommend to my friends.
I was sent a wonderful basket from Nestle El Mejor Nido that included everything I needed to try traditional recipes with a twist, the December issue of All of You Magazine, and their Limited Edition Holiday Entertaining Guide. Now once I got the basket I got a little nervous because as I’ve shared before I’m not that exceptional in the kitchen. But my nervousness was quickly put to rest as these recipes are not only easy they are deliciosas!
I was super excited to try the Flan Impossible as it blended my two loves, chocolate Devils food cake and Flan! But I had never ever ever made flan on my own so I was really happy to know that using Nestle evaporated milk and condensed milk La Lechera I was going to be able to make a dessert I’d be happy and proud to serve to my family at future gatherings.
Flan Impossible was not only a huge hit for dessert I caught my husband and daughter having some for breakfast the next day!
The creaminess is due to the wonderful ingredients found in Nestle Evaporated and Condensed Milks.
Next up I made the kids a special treat that had Frozen Nestle Drumsticks and Abuelita brand hot chocolate mix. WOW the kids loved this as a nice treat and I loved knowing that they were having a treat made with the great ingredients found in these Nestle products. I even made my own hot chocolate with Abuelita, this has been a brand my mom has used since I can remember and we’ve always loved it but now so much more convenient in a powder mix and not just a hard tablet.
My own brats…ah er I mean prince and princess enjoying their Frozen Hot Chocolate.

I’m going to be cooking up a storm in the next few weeks and now I have great inspiration!
