There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Dulce de Leche

Dulce de leche means "sweet of the milk" or "milk candy". I found out how easy it was to make....

I not sure if you heard about the recipe of boiling the can for 4 hour. It's kinda scary and I'm sure you have heard the horror stories of the cans exploding. So I really didn't want to go that route.

I really got lucky and stumbled on a recipe that was in the microwave... plus another stove top recipe.... From Company site. Nestle's

Pour a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk into a large bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes on half power (50%). Stir and microwave for 2 more minutes on half power.

Then microwave on medium low (30%) power for 2 minutes at a time. Stir with a whisk between cooking times, for 8 to 12 minutes. Until the mild turns a light caramel color...
The milk will start to bubble up and when you are microwaving it. But when you stir it; the constancy becomes very smooth....... specially after it starts to thicken.

Or you could cook it on the stove in a double broiler about the same way...
