Giving it a shot.

Ok,  new year, new goals, starting over with a clean slate...blah, blah, etc.  So not that I have a snowball's chance in hell of completing even a week of NaBloPoMo, I'm on the blogroll for January.  Stay tuned to watch me spiral down to a silent-forgot-to-blog death in the YOU SUCK blogging category.  I would hate to disappoint my hundreds four followers by actually finishing a month of blogging!  Hehh. Giving it a shot for the heck of it.

Speaking of shots- OMG - Mr. FixIt received a recipe from a co-worker over the holidays. It is a long-time used family recipe. If you like B@iley' are sooooo going to love this.  HOMEmade Irish Cre@m. A shot of this stuff is not enough. You need a glass :-D

Easy peasy. You probably have most of this stuff at home already.  Here goes.

1 cup whiskey (cheap is fine, we used Evan Williams)
3 beaten eggs
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract
2 teaspoons Hershey’s chocolate
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping (not whipped, straight from the carton)
1 14oz can Eagle Sweetened Cond. Milk

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix on high.  Refrigerate and it will thicken. Keep refrigerated, should keep for about a month or so.

Like it will last that long?? What kind of non-drinkers suggest that??  Mr. FixIt cranked out a batch of this last night for New Year's Eve and it's more than half gone already.  Wheeeeeeee!!!!!

Honestly, I think you could put a touch more chocolate in it and touch of mint extract and have an equivalent B@iley's Irish Mint, but whatever you try,  in honor of the family that has passed it down for years...don't screw it up. :-D   You wouldn't want to waste even cheap whiskey anyway, hehe.

Alrighty NaBloPoMo....Day 1 down.  Only 30 more to go!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


  1. I thought about NaBloPoMo for Jan...that's about as far as I got! Good Luck!

  2. I was going to give NaBloPoMo a shot this month - and I'll still post as much as I can, but January has already been messed up, as I failed to post on the 1st or 2nd.. Go me.

    However, I may shoot a little lower and try to complete February. We'll see if I can get the button onto my blog! =)

    Anyway, I am going to have to try that recipe! I'm not a *huge* Irish Cream fan, but a little in some coffee on a cold night is not a bad thing!

    Happy New Year and good luck to you!

  3. Well, I blew it. Started a post yesterday and saved it, but forgot to finish it until this morning. Crap. Oh well, another month I WON't complete- ha! ha!
