Another weekend has flown by! Where does all the time go? Temps where set for 100 degrees F this past weekend and boy was it hot! I don’t know what they did back in the old days with no AC and no shelter besides a horse and wagon.

I love ordering the William Sonoma catalog, they feature some good recipes in there as long as items I cut out to add to my wish list for Santa hehe. I decided to make this recipe as something different for my hubby instead of our usually weekend splurge of food. I also made it on the weekend because it has some booze in it it and didn’t want to have to send him to work all liquored up. 🙂 To be honest it was really good, but a little too sweet for breakfast. I will make this again for sure just use it as a topping on ice cream or on a cake.

Before I get to the recipe I wanted to say congrats to our winner Monica who just won herself a bag of Jack Daniels charcoal! Congrats and email me your info at so I can get your prize out to you asap.
