It started when I shared this hilarious image on my Facebook page.

For the record, I take no credit for the above images. They are so popular on the Internet that it is impossible to find the original.

My friend Connie Campbell, of Growing, Cooking, Sharing is a consummate, always-inspiring culinary artist and when she saw the image, her creative mind started spinning out recipe ideas. It lead to this. She says you should feel free to adjust the amounts according to your palate.
