kahlua. nuff said.

I cannot even begin to describe the level of pissed my youngest was when he found that I was making Kahlua frosting for the chocolate cupcakes I baked. I always forget about Kahlua. for good reason I guess…last time I drank it was in white Russians at the Dance All Night Girls Only party my [...]

a new year…a new chance for chocolate

well. that was quick. Our winter trade show season started right after new years and plowed straight thru snowmageddon last week. I’m having a hard time with re-entry…so the fact that chocolate cake day came and went in a blink of an eye is quite distressing. I don’t give up quite so easily though. Check [...]

a national day of celebration…for coffee and alcohol. mmmmm….!

So, i don’t know about you, but when i stop into the liquor store it’s usually for something specific. A bottle of wine? vodka? spiced rum for some holiday hot tubbing? Anyway..Kahlua is usually stocked in the bar somewhere, but is typically not a ‘go to’ drink for me. However, in honor of National Kahlua Day [...]

WHY is there a National Crab Stuffed Flounder Day??

This was my main fascination with this day. Why? do we really NEED a crab stuffed flounder day…seriously. WTF?  Well, let me tell you…there is no plausible explanation for why this exists..other than someone decreed it so. Someone that didn’t document anything because they didn’t want anyone, ever, to be able to let the flounder trail [...]
