Mexican Dessert

I tried Fried Ice Cream for the first time at our favorite Mexican Restaurant when I was pregnant with my daughter and instantly became hooked.

I literally would go to eat there and order only this tasty Mexican dessert.

If I had room for anything else, then I would order a meal…. My cravings were out of control.

Could be why my daughter has such a sweet tooth????
