Ya. There really isn’t much to say about this post, but MOUTHWATERING. Thank you¬†Flickr user CrazyUncleJoe-MoFo!


The “baco,” as it is aptly named, was first brought to my attention by SnarkyBytes. It is a deliciously simple process: form a four-by-four square weave of bacon and place it over a taco-shaped mold (they recommend shaped tin foil over small Pyrex bowls.) Place it in the oven heated to 400 degrees until browned and crispy. Enjoy

Two Drink Ideas to Warm the Soul

Wednesday, October 5, 2011 Review by judywrites

Summer has slipped away and soon it will be chilly, chilly, chilly. Here are a couple of Scotch drinks to warm the soul  :-).

Aberdeen Angus – makes one drink

Bottle of Drambuie


4 oz. scotch whisky

1 oz. Drambuie

1 Tbs. honey

2 Tbs. lime juice

Stir the scotch, honey and lime juice into a mug. Warm the Drambuie and light it (be sure the flame is off). Pour the burning Drambuie into the mug and stir rapidly. Enjoy.

It is fall so traditionally apple season – get some cider and try this one.


Apples Ready for Cider

A New Kind of Cider

2 oz. Drambuie

8 oz. hot cider

Stir the ingredients in a mug with a cinnamon stick.
