Drunken Coffee Jello Squares

Drunken Coffee Jello Squares
OK, kids: This is coffee. In solid form. It’s been sweetened with condensed milk and booze-ified with a healthy dose of Kahlua—then rubberized into a blissful, cocktail-hour finger food thanks to the magic of gelatin. (If you know me, you know how much I love coffee, so you can imagine how excited I was when I came across the recipe.) Now, you have to like Jello, or Jello-like food, for this to work. If you do, you’re in for a treat. Huge thanks to The Food Librarian for sharing their deliciousness. (If you haven’t checked out the Food Librarian’s blog, you should. So, years ago, I had several meals that ended with Classic American Jello Mold Torture. This is not that jello. This jello is the short and stout cousin of Vietnamese iced coffee, that fabulous concoction of espresso and condensed milk. This is jello that you could serve to your foodie friends. This stuff is silly. The short version of the recipe goes like this That’s it. Read on for step-by-step instrux of what that looks like. Related:  Drinks :)

New 9/11 Footage Reveals WTC 7 Explosions Video clip NIST fought tooth and nail to keep secret contains clear audible booms as eyewitness describes “continuing explosions” from direction of Building 7 Paul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.com Wednesday, October 13, 2010 Newly obtained 9/11 eyewitness footage that NIST fought tooth and nail to keep secret contains what appears to be the sound of explosions coming from the vicinity of WTC 7 after the collapse of the twin towers, offering yet more startling evidence that the building, which was not hit by a plane yet collapsed demolition style, was deliberately imploded. The clip was released by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) as part of a 3 terabyte package of video and photo data in response to a lawsuit brought by the International Center for 9/11 Studies. The fact that NIST dragged their feet for so long in an attempt to block the release of these highly incriminating videos clearly indicates that they were part of an attempted cover-up.

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes Recipe As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right. These cupcakes consist of a Guinness-chocolate cake base, which has a wonderful depth of flavor and is also supremely moist. While you can’t really taste the beer in the cupcakes (it serves as more of a flavor enhancer for the chocolate), you can definitely taste the alcohol in the filling and the frosting. I think I need to start converting more drinks into baked goods, this was too much fun (and way delicious!). Two year ago: Sour Cream Coffee CakeThree years ago: Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

Not so much a recipe… More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?” post. Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then. I know, right!? The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce. I’d also been pouring the leftover coffee into an ice tray and freezing it in the off hand chance I’d have time to make iced coffee. See where I’m going? I didn’t have time to cold brew, so I made coffee in the french press, poured it into a pitcher, and let it rest in an ice bath. Once it was chilled, I took the caramel sauce and drizzled it in some glasses. Totally fancy, I know. Then I added the coffee cubes, my favorite creamer, then the coffee. Lovely. For this batch, I didn’t let the coffee cool enough, so the caramel drizzles disappeared when I poured the coffee in. So, now that I have the power of delicious iced coffee, you’ll find me out in my back yard, chillin’ with a book and sippin’ on love. Pioneer Woman’s Caramel Sauce Like this: Like Loading...

Hobo Stove | Practical Survivor Urban survival is a tricky subject to discuss. There are advantages to urban survival. Anywhere you look there are items in trash cans and dumpsters that can be used to improve a survival situation. Cardboard boxes can be used for shelter, newspapers can be used for insulation and to the practical survivor another persons trash can be a treasure. In this case we will use a coffee can to build a stove. Keep an open mind during any survival situation. Whether backpacking, camping, or surviving, having a way to cook can make a huge difference. A coffee can or large vegetable/ravioli can will allow you to build a stove and cook. Items used to build this stove: * Coffee can * Can opener * Tin snips * Drill and drill bits * Metal coat hanger There are many methods that could be used to build this stove. We use a metal coat hanger to build rods which will help hold up the cooking pot. The top side of a coffee can is already opened. We then used the tin snips to cut a small door. Materials:

ø Best PUA Top PUA Top Pick Up Artists 2009 ø Best Pick Up Artist PUAs For a long time now, I've been involved in the community, dealing with different PUAs, AFCs, and companies in the industry. I've met many of the top PUAs in the world, heard a lot of the rumours, and found the real facts. I've wanted to create a top 10 list for a while, and a top 10 list with a difference. I wanted to create a list that will help guys find the gurus that they should pay attention to, ones that can be great role models, teachers, and examples, and not just ones that use marketing or hype to create a name for themselves. This list is based on raw skill with women, with consideration for teaching skill, and whether they make a good example for other guys to follow in their footsteps. 1. I'd love to say it was a tough decision to choose the top PUA but it really wasn't. When I looked for proof of Adam's game I found numerous live pick up videos which show closes in high-pressure situations, day and night. 2. 4. 5. 6. 7. Mehow is the TV mogul of the Pick Up World. 8.

S'moretini Shooters Me again. Here to convince you that you need yet another trendy, insanely-flavored bottle of booze. I do what I can. I know what you’re thinking. Well… not technically. You seriously don’t want to see our liquor cabinet. But don’t blame me. Don’t mind my fingerprints. I also like my marshmallows charred. I roast them ’til they’re flaming. The good news is that this world seriously CANNOT come up with another vodka flavor that I will have to run out and immediately purchase. [Right.] The best part? People go nuts.

Jello Shots! This Post is ALL Mandi. I think she has had a few of these this morning so disregard her grammar and over excitement. See ya next week! - Dan I love jello shots. if you know me personally then you have most likely had my jello shots at least once because ill take pretty much any excuse to make them. jello + alcohol = awesome Now when I first tell people about my obsession with jello shots I think they immediately flash back to some college party where there were two types of jello shots: green with a handle of ten dollar vodka and yellow with a handle of ten dollar rum. The basic method is as follows: boil one cup of water, add one packet of jello, mix two minutes (don't skimp on this it will be grainy!) My basic tools. bowl and spoon for mixing, flat measuring cup for easy measuring of liquids, ladle and spouted measuring cup for filling. I get these little cups at a restaurant supply store. "margarita" this one can only be done as a double because it has two alcohols.

Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought. Toronto-based Mari Santos, on the other hand, is such a genius with a pair of scissors we want to hitchhike across the border, kidnap her, head back south, and then set her to work against her will on the oversize T-shirts we seem to get for free by the pound. Except that it would probably be illegal. Her ethos: "Taking something old, frumpy and ill fitting and making it into something new." More pictures below the fold. [Via ::NotCot] Club | milan.unlike Winter spells creature comforts, hibernating at home and duvet days punctuated by steaming soups and classic re-runs. Big impersonal hotels don’t stand a chance– even if they do have an aroma steam room in the basement. But there’s an exception to every rule. In this case, it’s The Hempel – a stylish homey haven in the leafier part of Paddington. Founded by society stalwart Anouska Hempel, each square foot of this delicate, delicious airy space whispers Zen minimalism juxtaposed with equal doses of upscale elegance. But let’s not forget the boudoir – an important consideration given the price tag. closed
