TEXAS (AND BEYOND): THE BEST EXCUSE FOR USING NEWLYWED GAME LINGO LIKE “WHOOPIE”

By Nora Zelevansky / February 11th, 2010

Actually, I take the title of this post back: there's actually no excuse for the word "whoopie."  BUT I am really enjoying the above FarmHouse Fresh "Whoopie" Cream.  Get your mind out of the gutter!

No, but seriously, I can't really explain the name.  BUT you know I was excited when this pretty little glass jar of shea butter lotion arrived at my house because I love all things shea butter and super dense lotions.

Yes, Andre: lotion.  I know.  You're doing a Silence of the Lambs impression as we speak.  Charming.

Anyway, the cream is a brand new product from the Texas based company and it seems to be quite hydrating, just like I like them.

Like Lalicious' Sugar Kiss lotion and Jaqua's Butter Cream body butter (which I LOVE), this smells like a variation on cake batter.  I realize that's not everybody's thing all the time (I mean, what is?), but it can be quite nice, when you're in the mood.  And I do admit that I'm shamelessly charmed by the old fashioned glass jar.  So Anne of Green Gables to me.  Should we go get drunk on cordial?  Is that a thing even?

Anyway, this lotion really doesn't make you want to "make whoopie," but it does make you want to bake a cake.

    RASPBERRY CORDIAL
    1 c. ripe raspberries
    2 c. brandy
    3/4 c. sugar syrup
    Put the raspberries in a jar and add the brandy. As with most perishable fruits, it is very important that the raspberries be completely covered with brandy. If they are not, more brandy should be added. Close the jar well, and give a strong shaking. Let it steep for one week and strain through a wire strainer, crushing any unbroken berries to get all the juice. Add the sugar syrup and strain through the cloth.
