Buffalo Trace Bourbon


If you’re a fan of bourbon (or hot chicks) stop by the Buffalo Trace Saloon and signup today. If you’re not a fan of Bourbon, just stop by and check out all of the “Bourbunnies” – I guess that’s their little play on words to give them a reason to feature hot broads from around the US on their site. And if you think YOU are a “bourbunnie”, go ahead and signup and submit your own picture.

Dont’ forget to checkout the recipes they have under the Grillin’ section – there’s some pretty good stuff in there, all of which features bourbon in the ingredient list!

It just so happens that I’ve never tried Buffalo Trace Bourbon, so if you’ve had it before, let me know what you think. I’m not even sure that I can buy this in my area…

Starbucks Iced Carmel Macchiato Recipe – Has it changed?


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge fan of the Starbucks Iced Carmel Macchiato (Venti… of course). However, the last few times I’ve had one, it has tasted like shit! Honestly, I order the Iced Carmel Macchiato because I have a major sweet tooth. If you’re not going to load my drink with carmel flavor and carmel syrup… is there really a point to me buying it? It really seems like they’ve cut down on the use of carmel flavoring that they put into the drink, and it also seems like they’ve been using a lot less of the thick carmel syrup… that was my favorite part!!! After the drink was gone, trying to suck all that thick carmely goodness through the straw.

Are there any other fans of the Starbucks Iced Carmel Macchiato out there? Have you noticed the same thing? Maybe its just this one Starbucks location that I’ve been going to… I should try another one and see if its the same.

All-Time Favorite – Macadamia Nut Pancakes Recipe


If you’ve ever been to the Hawaiian Islands (Oahu, Maui, Kauai, etc.) or any other Pacific island, then you’ve probably had a chance to sample Macadamia nut pancakes. I’ve searched far and wide for a good macadamia nut pancake recipe and have finally come up with one that suits my liking… I think this might even make Jack Johnson switch from banana pancakes.

Serving Size: 3
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
1/2 cup macadamia nuts (chopped)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 tablespoons butter (Unsalted) (melted)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup maple syrup

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  3. Combine the dry and wet mixtures till you get a lumpy batter.
  4. Heat a non stick frying pan or griddle over low heat.
  5. Depending on the size of the pancake you like pour a portion of the batter into the non-stick frying pan or griddle.
  6. Sprinkle some of the chopped macadamia nuts onto the pancake.
  7. Once the sides of the pancake begins to harden and bubbles start to appear on the top of the pancake flip it over.
  8. Cook for another minute or two and remove.

Notes
Maple syrup works on these, but if you want that real island taste and feel, cover these things in coconut syrup. So delicious!
