Irish Triple Threat Mini Shot Cakes

Irish Triple Threat Mini Shot Cakes

Last week I read an article on how much sleep you really need. I mean, I know that we all need a good nights rest; eight being that magic number, but this article gave me renewed inspiration. There were lots of great points in the article, and I vowed I was really going to try to get to bed early.

It always starts with good intentions. Night one, I was in bed by 10:30pm.

Next night, a little later.

By the third night, I was going to bed LATER than I normally do. Still tired from the night before, that next night I decided to make these beauties.
