My Talking Pet

If you haven’t been wasting time with the My Talking Pet app you are sadly missing out on a pretty solid abdominal workout.  I can’t get over how easy it is and how well it works. The movements in the eyes and face make it so realistic, it absolutely kills me. Is there a My Talking Baby app, yet? Because that would be hilarious and the idea of superimposing talking mouths onto my newborn is possibly enough to make me want one.

Call me Old Fashioned: a recipe for a Wisconsin Old Fashioned using Brandy.

You don’t get much more Wisconsin than an Old Fashioned. An Old Fashioned made with Brandy (versus the seemingly more popular Whiskey variation). Admittedly I hadn’t sipped an Old Fashioned until I had lived in Wisconsin for a year or so, but once I had one I truly understood the state’s infatuation. It seems like each establishment has their own “secret recipe” for the traditional drink, here’s how we do it at our house:


Lowball glass full of crushed ice or 1 Ice Sphere
2 oz Brandy
1 tbsp Homemade Simple Syrup (or 1 sugar cube if you’re feeling lazy)
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 Orange Wedges
2 Maraschino Cherries
Soda Water (we make ours using our Soda Stream)


Add 1 orange wedge, 1 cherry, simple syrup (or sugar), and bitters to bottom of lowball glass and muddle. Top with crushed ice (or ice sphere). Poor 2 oz. Brandy over ice, top with a splash of soda water.
