Nana’s Arroz con Leche

Growing up in large, Mexican-American family, my sweet Nanawould make her grandchildren a large pot of Arroz con Leche forbreakfast whenever we would visit. Her kitchen would be filled withthe sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar while we played in her sunroom as she cooked. This comforting dish brings back the happiestmemories of spending time with Nana in the kitchen and herteaching me my first few words in Spanish. If you choose to makethis dish, please keep your grandmother in your heart as you followthe recipe! Or better yet, give her a call and invite her over to shareit with you!
