Very potent - do not attempt unless you enjoy very strong drinks where you can taste the liquor, like traditional martinis! Yellow Chartreuse is a milder version of Green Chartreuse, a unique herbal liqueur made from a small group of monks' secret recipe. It is available for about $44 in some stores or less on WineChateau.com - a little goes a long way though so it's worth the price. This drink created by Absolut Vodka is supposed to be done using dry ice to make it more mysterious, but this is the easy version.
Can these cookies help you see better at night? Carrots contain Beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the liver, and Vitamin A helps to maintain healthy vision. Unbeknownst to "old wives" around the world, though, the carrots do not contain enough Beta-carotene to make any significant difference.

Xi-fan means "watery rice" and it's often eaten for breakfast in Northern China, usually made with rice but can be millet, barley, or some other grain. It is often accompanied by peanuts, pickled vegetables, thousand year old eggs, or shredded pork. This easy modern version is one of the only breakfasts I can eat before working out for two hours that keeps me going! You can use any spices you like.
These are really fun to make! Everyone will love these too...not just Bugs Bunny...the starch of the carrots changes composition and with the butter and salt they're almost like a potato chips...well, not really but nothing like plain old carrots.
