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 🙂
How to make Whiskey Glaze:
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir to combine.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
Use immediately, or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
This sauce will thicken as it cools.

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!
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.
