Tres Leches Cake

May is the month of glorious beginnings and endings--graduation, end of school, plus lots of fun, fun events to celebrate.  I think the most fun is to entertain at home.

There are so many holidays, and special reasons to celebrate in May--Mother’s Day , graduation and bridal showers plus Cinco de Mayo coming May 5 and the Kentucky Derby May 7.

During holiday times, I think restaurants become so crowded that it is much more relaxed and better for conversation at home. And, of course you can select the foods you like and with a little planning, you as the host or hostess can really be a guest at your own party.

I just gave a class for celebrating Cinco de Mayo here in Albuquerque and we had such a great time, and the food was so delicious—I want to share those recipes with you.

Each of them can be prepared for any time. The Tres Leches cake is a celebratory cake and is wonderful most anytime.
