Whiskey Cream Liqueur

I have tried a number of different recipes to find the perfect liqueur that satisfies my taste buds using whiskey. I personally don’t like the smell or taste of whiskey, but since it’s one of the 3 beverages that are suitable for the failsafe diet, I was on a mission to find a way to like it. […]

Green Smoothie

Following on with the St Patrick’s Day theme for this week, I thought I would bring you something green that I make regularly.  I enjoy this green smoothie especially on days I have actually attempted to do a workout and I usually drink it just with chilled water added. As a refreshing drink my son and I prefer […]
