A Game and a Recipe

First, let's play a fun guessing game.

Look at this picture (taken at the Whole Foods Bakery Counter):

Now, who can be the first person to name the movie and the quote that VUBOQ immediately thought of when he saw two of those cakes?

It made VUBOQ laugh. The Cute Bakery Girl looked at him strangely when he laughed and took a picture.

Now, Calvin asked for my limoncello recipe. I think I've given it out before, but I'm too lazy to search for it ...

The Rule of 7s Limoncello

You will need:
Lemons, Sugar, Grain Alcohol, Water, Glass Container

Place the zest of 7 lemons in a glass container.
Pour 750 mL of grain alcohol (like EverClear) over them.
Place in a cool, dark place for 7 days.

On Day 7,
Make a simple syrup: On low heat, dissolve 700g (about 3.5 cups) of sugar in 750 mL of water.
Let cool to room temperature.
Strain the zest out of the alcohol (which should be a lovely yellow color by now).

Add the room temperature syrup to the strained alcohol.

Voila! Finished. Easy Peasy.


  1. Oh glorious limoncello, I shall make you when I am no longer knocked up. (What? Drinking alcohol while nursing has been clinically shown to relax the baby. AND the mama.)
    I'm guessing something about Mini Me from Austin Powers.

  2. I have been looking for a limoncello recipe. Thanks :)

  3. Wait - the cake reference ---- you are making Bossy feel Old and Out Of It.

    The answer is...????

  4. Easy for you, maybe.

    "Make a simple syrup." That sentence is an oxymoron.

  5. Tell us the answer, PLEASE!
