2 Comments 02 May 2010

I made a black shake today. Black. You are reading that correctly. Sweet Jesus, it’s the ugliest shake I’ve ever made. But, you know I wouldn’t post a shake recipe here if it didn’t taste good, so take my word for it. I’m not posting photos because I don’t want to scare you. Shake Theory [...]
