So, I checked out a book called 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know.  It is the first cookbook I’ve read in a long time that I love despite the lack of food photos.  Each recipe comes with a background story, and difficulty rating.  There’s a recipe for a super fast, tasty stir fry, a recipe for chocolate beer cupcakes with Irish cream frosting, and some very tasty breakfasts.  Love it.

And speaking of loving Irish cream, here is what I made for dessert tonight:

2 scoops toasted almond gelato

1 shot Irish cream liquor

topped off with a bit of almond milk.

blend into a delicious milkshake and drink rapturously. 🙂

Not fancy enough for you?  Pour it into a wine glass, top with a little whipped cream and garnish with a sprig of mint and a few toasted almond slices.
