foodista: A Very Unique Way of Making a Custard Pie - 09/26/11 07:23 AM
I'm not a flavored coffee creamer kind of girl.  I only buy the stuff when I'm having guests who use it.  So, after looking at the Bailey's flavored coffee creamer in my 'frig for the past couple of weeks, I got a brilliant idea!  Why not use it in place of some of the half-n-half or milk in my husband's favorite custard pie recipe?
Here's the Recipe:

Thai Noodle Salad
I often see this salad in the deli case at our local grocery store.  Unfortunately, since it sits there too long (apparently), the veggies aren't as crisp as I like.  Making this salad fresh is just the ticket!
