Ways to Enjoy Yerba Mate: Mate Cocido in Tea Bags

Don’t think the gourd and bombilla fit your lifestyle?  Why not try mate cocido in tea bags?

Yerba Mate in tea bags is commonly available online and sometimes in some grocery stores.  Simply add a tea bag to a cup of hot water and off you go.  One advantage of this method is that you can easily control the strength of the mate by adjusting the length of time it is steeped.  However, purchasing Nativa or Cruz de Malta yerba mate in tea bags can be a little more expensive than using the loose leaf variety.

Dulce de Leche Dessert Ideas: Cupcakes

We came across a recipe for dulce de leche cupcakes that we simply couldn’t resist!  Apparently this recipe has been blogged and revised multiple times on the internet, and rightfully so.  We can attest to that!

Our cans of Nestle La Lechera Dulce de Leche are ideal for both the cake and frosting.
