So yummy, the perfect Cinco de Mayo cake! I make this for all of my summer parties, especially cookouts!Oh, Tres Leches Cake, how I love thee! I can remember a small Hispanic bakery that moved into our little community some years ago and introduced us all to Tres Leches cake. One bite and we were hooked!

Have a successful and no stress garage sale.April showers bring May garage sales I always say! Well, not really, but it’s true. After welcoming spring and rampaging thru the house with spring cleaning, I always find I have one too many boxes of stuff that is of no use to us.
