Salted Hot Chocolate Please update your google readers! As mid-afternoon hit on our snowed- in Saturday, I started to go a little stir crazy. I love being snowed in, but one can only take so many bad action movies, spazed cleaning moments, and requests to make something to eat every 5 minutes from a turkey-loving husband. I certainly think I will be well prepared for children one day. I decided to mock one of my favorite Starbucks’ drinks on the chilly day while watching the snow fall. 7 Strange Ways Harry Potter is Now Real The "Wizarding School" is at the center of the Harry Potter world. Young witches and wizards go there to learn the ways of magic, as well as to make friends and join the larger magical community. It's also made the word "wizard" into a verb. But a school like this, with subjects like "Defense Against the Dark Arts" and "Potions," could only exist in the realm of fiction, right? I mean, no one in their right mind would actually try and posit that not only witch craft exists, but works, and should be taught to children, right? Wrong.

The Harry Potter Cookbook teaches many of the treats in the book "It will be years before we go back, and there is no other place on Earth that sells Butterbeer or pumpkin juice," I told them. "Why can't you just make it?" asked my 6-year-old. Why not, indeed? Shortly after that, I discovered the "Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook" (Adams Media, 256 pages, $19.95). I threw it open to the index, feverishly searching for Butterbeer, the fictional drink from the "Harry Potter" books and movies. Perfect Iced Coffee Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years.

Top 10 Popular Shot & Shooter Recipes Today, September 22, marks the day for the fastest drinking record; Dustin Phillips of the United States consumed a 14 ounce bottle of Ketchup through a 1/4” straw in 33 seconds flat ten years ago. Ketchup seems a nasty ‘beverage’ to guzzle willingly, yet many enthusiastic participants flock to bars weekly to start (or end) the evening with the downing of a shot that none would eagerly sip slowly enough to take in the flavor or texture for a lingering moment on the tongue. Admittedly there are many shot recipes that make the conversion to cocktail easily. The Oatmeal Cookie shot is an outstanding example. However, many prefer shots and shooters too horrid to down without holding the nose or throwing them back feverishly with a beer chaser or *gasp* water back.

25 Bizarre Harry Potter Fan Art Pics In 2 more days the Harry Potter franchise is all but done with the release of the final movie.

Harry Potter Cookbook and Homemade Marshmallows I can admit it; I enjoyed the Harry Potter books and movies. They’ve also made gobs of money for almost everyone associated with the the projects. J.K. Rowling has cashed in on much more than just the films and the books though. Merchandizing is her real cash cow. It seems that people will buy anything involving Harry Potter or Hogwarts or whatever other character or aspect the marketers decide to exploit next.

Brazilian Lemonade This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit.

Through their time at Hogwarts, Harry Potter and his pals have regularly eaten some of the classics of British foods, the good and the no-so-good - tripe, yuk. Harry Potter's school food involves pies, puddings, tarts and cakes to fuel all those adventures and a tough game of Quidditch. Hearty British breakfasts after midnight escapades and delightful afternoon teas with Hagrid. Though rich in classic British food, Harry Potter's food does lack fish, vegetables and fruit but I don't think they mind so much with all the treats on offer. Harry Potter Fun Stuff
