Nope, haven't tried this drink yet, but the thought of maple syrup in a drink sounded pretty cool. Even better, it's super simple to make for when you're reading a good book, or to show off for friends. Here it is:
In an ice-filled shaker, mix 1/4 cup Vanilla Vodka, 3 Tbs. Pure Maple Syrup, 2 Tbs Dark Rum and 1/2 Tsp Rum Extract. Shake it up well for your aerobic activity, then strain into 2 glasses. Add a stick of cinnamon or a piece of yummy bacon if you like. Done!
Did you know that 12 people have won all four major awards since 1950? Audrey Hepburn, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Hayes and Mel Brooks are included in this esteemed list of entertainers who have won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony AND a Grammy.
Most of us use baking soda to keep the odors out of the fridge, but did you know that we can also get rid of those yucky smells with a lemon? Place lemon juice on a cotton ball, then leave it in the refrigerator for about 2-3 hours. When you go back later, that smell will be all gone!
I have to be honest. The first time I heard about this line, I thought it was a ruse, but it actually does exist. Every year in November and December anyone can call the Turkey Talk-line for cooking assistance. I don't know how they do it, but their team is able to figure out just about any scenario you can come up with. I'm sure 30+ years of experience has prepared them for anything.

Years ago, I remember getting up super early to head to K-Mart to purchase gold hoop earrings, and I was pretty much always first in line.

Black Friday Deals were so hard to find out about in advance that you had to know someone to get an early scoop. Now we can get bargains on Thanksgiving, and on-line that can be better than on Black Friday. We also find out about all those deals much, much earlier. But what about you? Any plans to head out with the masses, or will you let your fingers do the walking?
