Baking Season is Here



Now that the holidays are here, so too are times for family cooking and baking. It's a tradition I want to begin with my kids. In fact, I hope to host Christmas at our house this year. 

One excellent and delicious ingredient that makes an appearance in an. Family recipe of mine is Nestlé® La Lechera® condensed milk, which is available at Walmart for a low price of $1.47 per 14 ounce can. 

For Hispanic moms everywhere, Nestlé® La Lechera is her trusted partner in the kitchen.  Since 1910, La Lechera strives to aid moms in the kitchen with quality, consistency and creativity that she can use to bring her family together.  It is the perfect ingredient to help you pamper your loved ones with delicious desserts that fit your busy lifestyle. It’s tradition and quality - and anything you make with La Lechera, is guaranteed to create unforgettable family bonding moments.
