Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.

The holidays are definitely about gathering with family and friends.  I love to throw on some festive music and of course gather around the table to eat.  One of my favorite things to make around this time is pozole!  Who doesn’t love a good bowl of pozole?

I have always loved my Tia Mela’s pozole and I would wait for the day she would invite us over to feast on this delicious dish (usually at Christmas or New Year’s Eve).  But now with all the practice I’ve had in the kitchen, I can whoop up my own pot of pozole any time I want.    It’s so easy especially with  #NorthgateMarket having all the items I need to make this happen.  My secret twist to this dish is adding Knorr Bouillon because it gives it an authentic flavor my family loves. And right now when you purchase Knorr Bouillon, you can get Guerrero Riquísimas flour tortillas for free.


So if you are looking for a super easy recipe, you have come to the right place!  Make sure to let me know how you’ll customize this great soup recipe for your family and search for inspiration with #KnorrCelebrations!

Happy Holidays!

Christmas is always a great time to be with family.  I especially love making memories with my kids.  This year my daughter and I decided to make some Mexican Wedding Cookies aka “polvorones”.  I love when she gets these sudden urges to create things in the kitchen because I know I get to be involved.

I posted our process on Snapchat (sillysil2u) and many of you requested the recipe and so we gladly will share it with you.  This is a very simple recipe with few ingredients.  Enjoy “y Feliz Navidad” to all our Social Media familia!

Bendiciones y con mucho amor!

Silvia and Jezreel (daughter)

1 cup of butter
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 1/4 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of chopped walnuts



Cream together butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla.  Slowly add the salt and flour.  Round 1 inch balls with your hand.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Do not let them brown too much.  Make sure to preheat oven at 400 degrees.

After they have cooled for a couple of minutes, roll in powder sugar.  Once cooled completely, roll in sugar again.


And your done!
