Guasacaca (Wah-Sah-Kaka) is Venezuela’s version of guacamole, although it is not as thick.  A sauce that is great for dunking with chips, veggies, arepas and empanadas, or spreading on grilled foods, like burgers, Portobello mushrooms, and so much more.
Guaiqueri Empanadas use a Guasacaca recipe from our Grand Mother 

Tres Leches Cake

A tres leches cake (lit. ’three milks cake’) (Spanish: pastel de tres leches, torta de tres leches or bizcocho de tres leches), also known as pan tres leches (“three milks bread”), is a sponge cake—in some recipes, a butter cake—soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.

When butter is not used, tres leches is a very light cake, with many air bubbles. This distinct texture is why it does not have a soggy consistency, despite being soaked in a mixture of three types of milk.
