B is for Buttery Nipple. You may not remember that one on the wallchart that ran around the walls of your nursery, but B is definitely for Buttery Nipple. Well, on the Out Of The Frying Pan website it is, anyway...
This is a fantastic site to get your juices flowing. The buttery nipple I so flagrantly lured you you into reading this review with, is actually a delicious, if overly sweet sounding, cocktail recipe:
3/4 oz. butterscotch schnapps
3/4 oz. Bailey's Irish Creme
Pour butterscotch Schnapps in a shot glass. Gently pour Bailey's over schnapps so that two distinct layers are formed.
Bailey's *and* butterscotch schnapps...hmm, I can't say I'm totally convinced. Doesn't mean I'm not going to try it though, for the sake of, um, research. Yeah, research.
I can see I am going to be doing a whole lotta researching with this website. Like finding jeans with elasticated waists.

Are you still reading this, Jill?
For those with a guilty conscience and an eye on last year's holiday snaps, a number of healthy and nutritious recipes can be whipped up to salve the pain of regret (when you're d
one with all the choccy ones...)
Vital issues, such as "What do you prefer - pancakes/ waffles/ neither/ ?" are put to the poll, the results of which will displayed later (can't say I'll be holding my breath, really), or you can eat, drink, be merry...and then discuss it in the website's forum. Need a particluar recipe, looking for new ideas, or just want to talk about chocolate...? That's the place to go, my little chucky eggs.
If you're like me, and want to save your exquisite designer dresses (or old rags, if the taffetta ball-gown hasn't come back from the dry cleaner's yet) from being splashed with curry sauce and garlic puree (or saliva), perhaps the stylish "All this and I can cook, too" apron andmatching t-shirt should be hurriedly purchased.
Should such heady glamour evade your budget, the Cheap Eats section should be your first port of call. "You don't need to break the bank to eat well. Rely on these standbys when times are tight." That'll be, well, always, then!
The aforementioned, and by now infamous, Buttery Nipple, is located in The ABC's of Cocktails - a page dedicated to the classic, the weird and the downright undrinkable (well, nearly...) presented for you in a handy alphabetical selection.
Perfect for the discerning cocktail gals and guys who can't think where to start, and may as well start with A. It may be best to pace yourself and not try for the whole A-Z in one go. You knew that, though.
Each recipe has full details of what and how to do, and the ever vital piccy, so you know that if yours is blue and theirs is red and orange, sommat has gone wildly amiss, and you should down it in one to avoid showing yourself up in front of guests.
You can also rate the recipe, and see what other people have thought of it so far, or click to get a printer friendly version of the page (that doesn't print all the fr
ame and junk). What's more, if you send them an original cocktail recipe that's not included in any book, if they decide to use it they will send you a free t-shirt.
You can also join the free weekly newsletter email list, if all this wasn't enough for you. I have only just joined, so don't have any details of what this contains, just yet. Still, if it's anything like the rest of the site, it will certainly be worth waiting for.
Out of the Frying Pan is part of the 'indie gurl' network - linked hip 'n' sassy pages from our friends over the pond, mainly. Some can be tiresome in their enforced
'groooovines' (heading for mall-rat city, you feel), but this is an excellent site I will definitely be making regular trips to.
Bottoms (or should that be nipples?) up!
