Cooking with Abuelita: Tres Leches

When my grandmother first moved to Miami from Nicaragua, she began working in a bakery making tres leches. This dessert is famous in this town. All the Latinos love it. Tres leches means “three milks” in Spanish, and it is made of condensed milk, evaporated milk, and cream. This is by far my favorite dessert. The cake is light and airy, while the different milks saturate it, making it incredibly moist and sweet.

Since my grandmother is the tres leches expert in the family, I don’t even dare making this cake without her. There’s just a special touch she puts in it that makes it even more delicious. Liam has a sweet tooth like his mama, and he loves this cake as well.

My Family's Favorite Fall Recipe

I love to cook. All of the women in my family are fantastic cooks, and it was a necessity for me as a little girl to be in the kitchen whenever dinner was being made so I could learn from my mom, grandmother and great-grandmother.

I am so glad they passed down their love of cooking to me. We have a few family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, but my all-time favorite is:
