I recently told one of our friends that I've never been to Ikea, and she said, "You're kidding me. In the past couple of years you and Emily have lived in three different apartments with a grand total of six rooms. She dresses very nicely and you...are engaged to someone who dresses very nicely. You two are the very embodiment of half-fashionable faux-poverty, and as such you have most certainly been to Ikea."
'Irish cream' on Serious Eats
DIY Irish cream tastes richer and fresher than the store-bought kind (though it doesn't last as long or look quite as uniform.) It's like the difference between a Chips Ahoy cookie and a freshly baked homemade chocolate chip cookie. Your own batch also will cost you at least 5 dollars less than the packaged stuff.
