50 Best Food Blogs

Last week, the Times posted an article with the world's best food blogs. Shockily, my blog was not among them (I am joking of course). I do follow one or two of these, but there are so many I have not heard of. It looks like I have some reading ahead of me :)
Happy Reading!

Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day


Today, February 11 is Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day.
So remember that every once in awhile milk spills, things happen. Try to remain optimistic, think happy thoughts, be happy with yourself and the things around you. Things do not have to be perfect and it is okay if they are not.
Spill some milk!
Homemade Chocolate Milkshake
Makes 1 - 2 servings
1 or 2 scoops of ice cream, vanilla or chocolate for extra chocolatey shake
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 - 4 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
Garnish with whipped topping and candy sprinkles or chocolate chips (optional)
Add the ice cream, milk, vanilla extract and chocolate syrup to the blender. Blend until smooth. You don't need to measure the ingredients, you can just eyeball the receipe (remember today is the day to let go!).
Pour the milkshake into one or two glasses. Top with whipped cream if you like and garnish with sprinkles. Enjoy!
