In the event of an unfortunate mix-up, I get nervous browsing Chart Porn on my work machine. Still, diagrams like this make it worth the risk:

    The It’s-It Milkshake [Recipes]

    August 11, 2009

    Disclaimer: My relationship with the kitchen is a lot like my mom’s relationship with the internet.  Nothing ever feels feels quite as comfortable as it should, so I tread cautiously, hope not to screw anything up, and leave immediately after I’ve accomplished what I first set out to do.  Over time,  I’ve slowly embraced the little pockets of goodness hidden within this mysterious culinary realm, but I’ve done so in baby steps.  With that in mind, you should approach my cooking advice the same way I approach all those forwarded email chains from my mom, and take the following with a massive grain of… wait, what’s that spice called again?


    The It’s-It Milkshake
    A Dreaming About Naps’ Original Recipe

    Background: At 11:30pm, craving a milkshake but in no state to drive and get one, I desperately turned to a nearby liquor store for answers.  What resulted in that next hour was an entirely unprecedented breakthrough in modern dessert-making science.

    Ingredients: One of the great things about the It’s-It Milkshake is that all the ingredients are conveniently found at any SF-based liquor store.  The only downside to this is that all the ingredients are found at a liquor store.  They are as follows:

    • Throw everything into a blender (you may need to break the It’s-It into smaller pieces).
    • Activate blender, varying time and speed based on how chunky (or creamy) you like your milkshakes.  Though texture may vary, crazy-deliciousness will remain constant.

    I probably should have included a picture of the end-product, but I totally forgot to take it.  Suffice to say, I was way more excited about drinking The Milkshake than taking its picture.  Maybe I’ll remember that part the next time I make it, which, according to webMD, should be absolutely never.

    Enjoy, and please drink responsibly.  :]
