Today my husband and I have been married 7 years. Yay for us! Ha. But in celebration of this I decided to take on something that I found intimidating, later realizing its not. Dulce de Leche.
For the Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned Easily Good Eats. Its a blog of a professional that loves to cook, and mainly cooks things with few and simple ingredients. There were several things I wanted to make but found a recipe for dulce de leche and was ready to take it on.
Its very simple. It takes a while but it basically just sits on the stove for 3 hours and you have yourself some sweet, rich, creamy 'candy milk'.
Go over to Easily Good Eats and find something delicious!
