Condensed Milk

Making condensed milk is easier than you can imagine. Personally, I always thought that in order to make condensed milk you needed to put it in a pot and cook it on the stove. But to my relief and my families amazement making condensed milk is so easy. Check the recipe below!


You will need

2-Cups powdered milk (full cream or low fat)

2-Cups granulated sugar (I used brown and it came out great)

¾ to 1 cup boiling water

2 oz margarine or butter

A few drops of vanilla essence

An electric blender



In the blender, put the milk, sugar, boiling water, margarine and essence and blend until the sugar is melted and the mixture look smooth (about 5 minutes)

Pour into warm sterile jars. Seal and store in the refrigerator.

NOW! How easy was that? Never buy condensed milk again, sweetened your coffee and other treats with your own condensed milk. Some will argue that it is cheaper to just buy a tin, but from the recipe above you can yield 1 1/3 cups of milk now that is more than a small tin and it is even healthier and fun to make. In these, though economical times finding ways to save every cent is very important.





I am Your Guest

You often accuse me of carrying a chip on my shoulder, but I suspect this is because you do not entirely understand me. Isn't it normal to expect satisfaction for one's money spent? Ignore my wants and I will no longer appear in your restaurant. Satisfy those wants and I will become increasingly loyal. Add a little extra personal attention and a friendly touch and I will become a walking advertisement for you.


When I criticize your food and service to anyone who will listen, which I may d...

About Me

Jeanette R. Marcelle Like many young person, Jeanette struggle with finding her way before she fell in love with culinary. Jeanette tried her hands at many things before one August holiday she took a part-time job as a witress to keep herself busy during the long school vacation. It was one of the first fine dining restaurants in Trinidad at the time. You had to write your order on a note pad and take it into the kitcken and hand it to the chef assistant who would read it to him. If the restaurant was not busy Jeanette would stand and wait on her orders. For her, this was really fascinating to watch how the chef would take a few simply ingredients and turn it into such a magnificent dish. "it was like wataching a magician at a magic show". After the August school break, Jeanette did not return to her studies (early childhood education) instead, she continued working in the restaurant and every chance she got she used it to 'bombard' the chefs with questions and english was not their first language so you do the math... Smile! It took no time for the restaurant manager to realized that Jeanette was spending more time learning the duties of the kitcken than the duties of the dining-room. This lead to a transfer and thus the love affair began.
