Tres leches cake used to scare me.

I know I’ve mentioned it before but, I want to remind you that I grew up in a very Americanized household and did not truly appreciate Mexican cuisine until I became an adult. As a kid I enjoyed all of the simple things like tacos, enchiladas, Spanish rice, etc., but it took some time for my palate to develop so that I could enjoy delicacies like a slice of creamy caramel flan, a pair of juicy tacos stuffed with tender strips of lengua, an ice cold Negra Modelo, and, of course, a light-as-air, sweet and milky tres leches cake.
