    So easy to make just the quantity you need. It tastes much better than that canned "stuff" which I never have in the pantry. I will be making this often. Thanks for a great emergency recipe, Cindy.

    This was so simple to make! I needed 1/3 cup of evaporated milk for a chocolate frosting recipe and this made the perfect amount (actually, it made about a tablespoon extra)! I had a can of evaporated milk but hated to open it just for 1/3 cup. By itself, it's not something that I'd be drinking (I tasted it after I made it) but when mixed into something with a stronger flavor, it's great! Thank you for the recipe! I know that I'll be using this recipe again!

I am currently a stay at home Mom and wife (aka: homemaker, domestic engineer, chauffeur, etc.). My husband and I made this choice about 2 1/2 years ago. At the time I was averaging 72 hours/week +. Our kids were complaining that they never saw me, and one of them was even getting in trouble (too little supervision apparently). We got the troubled teen through high school, and she is currently preparing for college. Things have improved a lot so I am considering going back to work part-time while the kids are gone to school (if the right opportunity presents itself). <br> <br>I love to cook, especially trying new recipes. I get tired of the same ol', same ol'. I also love reading cookbooks and the history of recipes. I always hated doing all the dishes afterwards, so I did a lot of one dish meals whenever possible. Recently, my husband bought me a new dishwasher, so now I am cooking up a storm! Everyone is loving it. <br> <br>I look forward to making new friends in Recipezaar, trying out new recipes, and hope some of you will try some of mine. Please, if you try my recipes, take time to post a little note telling me about your experience and any modifications you may have made. I just love to experiment and try new things in the kitchen! :-))
