  1. Approximately how long do you have to boil the cans? I would like to try your caramel brownies & don't want to screw it up! (can you please email that time to me? I can't check on line from work - M L GAROFALO AT HOTMAIL DOT COM)

    By the way, everything I have tried off your blog has been sensational. Thank you so much for blogging about your cooking.


  2. How do you store the dulce de leche once made?

  3. @anon - if it's unopened, just keep it in the can until you're ready to use. if it's opened, then in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

  4. My hubby would love it if i was a cook like you. I will have to use some of you recepies!
