tres leches, three milk custard

Tres Leches or Three Milks… ahhh so so good! I have eaten this a lot over the years because my husband introduced me to it, and I have grown to love it!  Tres Leches, is a rich, creamy, gelatin like milk flan or custard. It’s made up of only 4 ingredients, but three meaning three different types of milk products.  On my husband’s side of the family, we usually enjoy it holiday time, or at a family party, but I felt the need to make it this weekend. ;o) If you make this, I know you will love it, and it will be a big hit at your next gathering!

Ingredients

  • 2 packs plain gelatin
  • 1 cup water, boiled
  • 1- 7.6 ounce can Nestle Table Cream or Media Crema (I find this in stores that carry latin foods)
  • 1 – 14 ounce can Carnation sweetened condensed milk
  • 1- 8 ounce package…

hersheys  kisses chrismas cookies

Back to holiday baking today, and had some Hershey’s peppermint chocolate kisses on hand. These cookies are sweet, minty, and oh so good! They are popular to make at Christmas time, and pretty easy to prepare.  As you can see in my picture, I have bundled them up in a cute cookie tin. I think these make a perfect sweet holiday gift to share with friends and family. Save some for yourself though, after all your the one making them, you must taste them before giving them away! Here’s the Hershey’s Kisses Christmas Cookie recipe I’ve come to love…

white chocolate peppermint cookies

Ok so I love peppermint, I love peppermint and chocolate even more…
Today I made white chocolate peppermint cookies. It’s the first cookie on my Christmas cookie list, and they were a big hit! Both my husband and my little one loved them, and I even shared some with my good neighbor. I found this easy recipe on the back of my white Ghirardelli chocolate chips, and the only thing I really added was peppermint extract, red chocolate chips from Nestle, plus crushed candy canes for a minty topping. I know you will enjoy these, and perhaps you’ve already made them. I just wanted to share with you how I made them.

Ingredients

1 cup butter, (2 sticks) room temp
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoons peppermint extract
3 cups unsifted flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
