|They Asked for the Recipe Punch|
I had friends over a few nights ago and my friend Neil asked for the recipe. If a guy who is not particularly interested in cooking asks...then I am flattered. This punch served 12 with only 1 glass each..it needs to be in multiples.
They also know of my obsession with blogging and didn't even bat an eye when I was taking photos of my food.
