Simplest Granita Ever (White Russians)

easy coffee granita

A half pot of unfinished coffee plus a splash of sugar, frozen in ice cube trays, makes the simplest granita  (or ya know, if you feel like going all out, try this version) ever. Add vodka and milk for a White Russian.  Cheers.


Bad Bananas = Great Cake

Each day they turned a litter darker,
grew  a few more spots.
I preserved their insides
and let their coat go all to sh*t
in the frigid, frigid fridge.

One box mix of spice cake plus three beyond ripe bananas. 

Cream cheese frosting with 1/4 cup salted caramel sauce (added tsp kosher salt to store bought)

Roast butter coated pecans in 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until you can smell them. Chop in food processor or by hammering them into oblivion with your hand or a can of corn.

You know, whatever works.
