These Irish Coffee Cheesecake Bites are made with powdered coffee, whiskey, and Bailey’s Irish Cream for the perfect St. Paddy’s Day treat.
First off a big thanks to the guy at the gym who gets props for being creative and asking me to teach him to skate only to lose all those points asking for my “digits”.
Men of the world don’t ask for a woman’s digits.
It’s called a phone number.
He of course did not get them.
And speaking of the gym, special thanks to the woman three machines down from me on the phone.
My life is now complete knowing that you “don’t think I (you) am going to get breast implants, I (you) don’t think I (you) want to lose the sensation in my nipples”.
If you want to cheer someone up send them a card through the mail.
So much more exciting than seeing a bill or the exciting coupons that no one uses.
I got a handwritten letter in the mail yesterday and it was awesome.
It was from a reader who is 18 and didn’t have a credit card but still wanted to help me out.
Not only was their $15 cash but one of the nicest letters I have ever gotten!
Watching an old episode of Grey’s Anatomy I heard this, it’s good advice for a few people that I can think of:
“Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass.
And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim.
The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long.
And we are tired; we are scared, denying it doesn’t change the truth.
Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world.
Head on, guns blazing. De Nile.
It’s not just a river in Egypt, it’s a freakin’ ocean.”
St. Patty’s Day is knocking at your door.
And while the hubby and I will be playing in a hockey tournament instead of seeing if we can out drink the table next to us, some people actually do stuff on St. Patty’s.
So if you are being festive I suggest making these Irish Coffee Cheesecake Bites.
The original cheesecake is here.
This is a variation of that cheesecake.
But much easier for a party as they are portable.
