  1. According to my class, and having knowledge of why hackers do what they do, this type of hacking is the work of pranksters. They do it cause they can. Because it’s funny to them.

    Also, whiskey glaze, yes PLEASE! You know that Jack Daniels stuff they had at Fridays (maybe they still do but I haven’t been there in a while) well, I LOVE IT. The sauce, yea, I’d dip my fries in that!

  2. Oh, thank you thank you thank you!!! I’ve been wanting to try a whiskey glaze forever (even DID try one once and it was horrid!). This looks amazing. I’m feeling some salmon…OR STEAK coming on!!

    P.S. Glad you got the twiller, I mean twitter mess hashed out! That would have wounded me as well!

  5. Oh no, hackers are the worst! My Twitter got hacked once and they sent spam emails to EVERYONE! Luckily all I had to do was change my password. OK, this sauce. I swear I can totally imagine what it tastes like, and it is fabulous, girl! Thanks so much for sharing at Wicked Good Wednesdays! {You can expect a little feature}
