Well I did the stupidest thing you can imagine this week. I got duped by the best twitter hackers around! The email was a “real” twitter email. The twitter sign-in page, was a “real” twitter sign-in page…..but the URL was twiller.com not twitter.com. Trust me, at 2am…..you cannot tell the difference! What does this have to do with Whiskey Glaze, absolutely nothing. The experience however, may get me to start drinking! Okay, not really, but I am still a bit surprised at how much this experience affected me.
It’s JUST twitter…..no big deal…..right? I think it was a combination of feeling completely stupid, the two day hassle to get my account unblocked, and the shock of how incredibly cruel people in this world are. What was the point of hacking our accounts? I was not the only one, and we both cannot seem to figure out what makes a people do this. What on earth can they possibly gain from hacking a twitter account? As you can imagine, I spent the better part of yesterday changing every account that had the same password…..that is a lot of accounts! It was my favorite password. Cute, fun, easy to remember! Oh well…..live and learn 🙂
You might remember this glaze from the Whiskey Burger than I guest posted on Julie’s (White Lights on Wednesday) site last month. I used the same sauce on my Hawaiian Chicken Grillers, and promised to post the recipe. So here it is folks, my version of Whiskey Glaze. It is perfect on those burgers, which I still need to re-post here, and chicken. I am sure it would be just as delicious on salmon, so that recipe may end up here as well!
As you can tell by the photo, I used Jack Daniels…..
No…..I am not affiliated with Jack Daniels, or any other alcohol company! The one thing that I have learned after baking cocktail cakes for the last 8 years, you cannot use cheap alcohol! It turns bitter when it is heated or cooked, however you want to look at it. If you choose to drink the cheap stuff, that’s fine by me. If you are going to cook with it, buy the good stuff! One more look at this awesome sauce in action…..
Yum! It is sweet and sticky, with some dark notes from the Worcestershire Sauce. I have mentioned before that I do not like chunky sauces, but feel free to use sauteed onions and garlic in place of the powdered versions that I used. I served the Hawaiian Chicken Grillers with my Creamy Italian Pasta Salad, just in case you were drooling over it 🙂 Enjoy!
