  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

<img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/Switzerland-FFF4.gif"> After growing up in central Wisconsin, I moved to California and spent my 20's and part of my 30's there. I've since moved to the east coast to a small village in Northern Virginia - a huge change! We moved here mainly so we could live in an area better suited to raising children and closer to family. Although it's an adjustment, we really love it here. My husband and I were married in Feb 2003 and had our first daughter, Kylie, in Aug 2004. Our second daughter, Katie, was just born in July 2006. I was an HR Director until I became Mom, and I wouldn't trade this job for anything in the world! I began cooking when I became a stay-at-home-mom, mostly out of necessity. We used to eat out for every meal...and I do mean EVERY meal. When our income was cut in half after my "early retirement", eating out was no longer an option. Therefore, if I was going to continue to eat all the delicious food I was accustomed to, I was going to have to...oh, the horror!!!...COOK IT MYSELF!!! I had grown up baking with my mom, but hadn't actually baked in years and had always left the cooking to her. To my utter surprise and delight (not to mention my husband's SHOCK and delight)...I loved it! Then, to find Recipezaar...well, it's become a much loved hobby and something I'll surely do for the rest of my life! <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://w186.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/kristybernardo/15590867.pbw" height="360" width="360"></embed><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/album/slideshow/wrapper_logo.gif" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/kristybernardo/?action=view¤t=15590867.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/album/slideshow/wrapper_viewshow.gif" style="float:right;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="http://photobucket.com/slideshow?action=landing" target="_blank"><img src="http://pic.photobucket.com/album/slideshow/wrapper_getyourown.gif" style="float:right;border-width: 0;" ></a>
