I love this recipe and have received rave reviews every time I make it. I mix the Kahlua with Triple Espresso Vodka for a litlle different taste and I always make a bit extra to really soak the lady fingers. This recipe makes a lot - I use 2 9"x9" pans. I brought 1 pan to a party and froze the other one. After 3 months in the freezer, I defrosted it in the fridge, and it still tasted great and as light and fluffy as the day I made it. I did add an extra splash of Kahlua just to give it a little kick - freezing it slightly reduced the alcohol taste.

Your friends will think you're a master chef when you serve this dessert. It's WONDERFUL yet quick and easy to make! Instead of ladyfingers, I use Sara Lee's frozen pound cake. I also use just enough of the Kahlua mixture so that it soaks into the pound cake slices approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of the way through which prevents it from getting too mushy. It's in my family's "Tested Best" Recipe book.

This is a FABULOUS trifle recipe - especially for tiramisu lovers! I first found it on Cooking Light's website and made it with a girlfriend...and it's become a staple ever since! The sweetened condensed milk adds just enough sweetness and the Kahlua gives it the "wow" factor. I use one 6-serving box of vanilla pudding, but I've also tried it with butterscotch and that's yummy too. And in addition to cocoa, add mini-chocolate chips on top of each layer. I've served this at many dinner parties and everyone raves.

This is one of my husband's favorite Tiramisu recipes. It's not totally traditional, but I love the flavor that the pudding adds to the whole thing. I have also subbed white chocolate for the vanilla with great success.
