It is cold in Miami! Can you believe it!? It’s like 52 degrees. Don’t even tell me for a second that 52 degrees isn’t cold enough. I won’t listen! Let me enjoy my almost super cold weather. Thank you. I have my Uggs on and everything. I don’t care. It is what it is. How cold is it where you live? I’m sure the weather will go right back to 90 degrees here by the afternoon but until then, I will enjoy this amazing weather. If you are currently in a place where it is below 52 degrees, put on a coat and dance Bachata all over your living room. Trust me, after 2 songs, you’ll be warm or more like extremely hot and needing a shower. You’re welcome.
I’m so happy to be able to connect with so many of you via Instagram! Although people abuse social media aka being on it all day, I enjoy the good it brings! Connecting with people all over the world is so much fun. For those of you who may not know, I did a live with another foodie lover that I meet on Instagram. It was scary, and it was our first time! There’s such a big difference from showing my hands and showing my face! BIG difference. I’m working on doing slower videos and recording myself and let me tell you, my nerves are all over the place. You start thinking about things you’ve never thought about before like, how deep or high your voice is or how my smile is totally crooked, BUT I am getting over my fear and I’m going for it!! I really hope you guys enjoy what is to come!
Let’s talk about this Tres Leche Recipe with a twist. It has one of my favorites, Fruity Pebbles! I mean, cereal with cake? Yassss please! I am a HUGE cereal eater. I think I have a bowl almost every day and I don’t have it only for breakfast, I can eat cereal at pretty much any time during the day. I grew up with 2 other siblings so cereal was highly regulated by my mom. We were able to eat one box in one day and my mom’s pockets weren’t having it! Now that I have my own monies (The way I’m speaking you’d think I was an 18-year-old with my first job lol) I have at least 5 different cereal boxes in my pantry at all times. In other words, I’m straight balling! Cereal everywhere! Do you want one? I got you! This recipe though, literally tastes like cereal and cake. So delicious and just the right amount!
I have searched for so many different Tres Leche Recipes and I always come across recipes that can feed 20 people! Like HELLO what ever happened to making recipes for a regular family of 5 or less?
