Notice anything different? I’ll give you a hint…it used to look like this around here:
That’s right…I’m very excited to reveal the new and improved Tasty Trials website. Welcome to my new digs!
Heather at Farmgirl Gourmet is responsible for my beautiful new space here. She worked oh-so-patiently with me as I flip-flopped from teal to white to brown, from patterns to no patterns, then from this brown to that brown and back again as my indecisiveness reared its ugly head. She was the creative force behind all of it, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. Every time I open my page I do a little happy dance in my head. Thank you, Heather!
There is a teeny tiny part of me that feels a little sad and sentimental at the loss of my “old” blog. It was my not-so-knowledgeable attempt at creating a site and it’s become so comfortable and familiar that I hate to see it go. I suppose this is the same part of my personality that, when asked about my impending fifth birthday, very sadly wailed, “I’M GOING TO MISS BEING FOUR!” (Because five is apparently a very rough year.) But I got over turning five and I will get over missing my old space. This, after all, is so much better…
So (although there are still a few things left to tweak) grab a cocktail and help me celebrate the unveiling of the brand spankin’ new Tasty Trials . If you’re reading this before noon, the coffee liqueur makes this an acceptable morning drink, don’t you think?
Amaretto Coffee Chiller
1 1/2 ounces Amaretto
1/2 ounce Starbucks Coffee liqueur
1/2 ounce crème de cacao
1 1/2 ounces heavy cream
Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass or serve on the rocks.
The name of this cocktail pretty much says it all…its got almond and coffee, with just a hint of chocolate. Not a bad way to celebrate anything, really.
