Post#117: No Four Star, but 19 Questions...

One of my favorite bloggers, Christine aka Mistress of Cakes, from Maman and Gourmand has chosen me to be her victim in a Foodie Tag! Since I adore her, I will acquiesce to her command! See, those SAT words come in handy.

So, tag! I am it. Now suffer through some Q&A on getting to know GabesBabyMomma (that's me)!

This is so much better than bread pudding (and the bread pudding was crazy good!)

Jennifer said...

Aw, you (and your sister) were adorable little girls!

Thanks for sharing a little about yourself. Will you share your Tres Leches recipe as well? I don't think I have ever made it, and I have only eaten it one or two times, but I do recall it was really good.

How lucky you are to have a twin! I've got twin boys and I hope they remain close as they get older.
