Kahlua and Cream Recipe
"Kahlua, Amaretto, and Cream"
This kahlua and cream recipe hits the Italian drinks chart because it has a super addition - amaretto. We use amaretto in tons of our Italian cakes like tiramisu. And if by chance you want to make a killer tiramisu, I have the best tiramisu recipe in the history of ever. You can make tiramisu better than Olive Garden on your first try.
Ok, back to the drink. This has a hit of amaretto. Amaretto taste a bit like sweet almonds. Which makes this drink - super sweet. I only drink it AFTER dinner. It's a dessert in a cup!
You can take creative liberties with this recipe and a couple of suggestions are listed below. Don't think twice about having a bottle of amaretto around. There are many Italian dessert recipes that use it! It won't sit around long.
Kahlua and Cream Recipe
* 2/3 oz. kahlua
* 2/3 oz. cream
* 2/3 oz amaretto
* Pour the kahlua and amaretto into serving glass.
* Pour the cream over a bar spoon so that it floats. Hmmmm. ( I don't always get it.)
* So, if that doesn't work, pour it over the rocks!
* And if you don't like either of those suggestions, then just pour it in a chilled glass after you have stirred it in ice.
What can I swap out for the cream?
If you have half & half that's OK. It's not first choice. Kinda like a B-Grade movie. It's bearable but you may only want to do it once.
What can I swap out for the kahlua?
Well conviently I have espresso vodka from making my espresso martini recipe. If you happen to have that - it's a go!

Memorial Day and Warmer Weather Treats!
It's finally warming up! In my neck of the woods we had SNOW on May 2nd. Now were on to the warm weather sweet treats!
I started celebrating by having a Sangria last night. Sangria is so easy to make - and the trick to making it spectacular is - following the super easy procedure. IF you need a brush up see:

As for Memorial Day Goodies - I bake the LESS sticky stuff if I have to travel. And something that the kids can grab with their fingers as they cruise by the dessert table and run off to their next game. Cookies and brownies work the best for this!
The past month, these are my top five most viewed cookie recipes:
