Bacon Risotto
Wow. This is like the carbonara of risotto... sooo good. It was very popular with the boyfriend, as well (of course, almost anything with bacon in it is a shoo-in). I did make some minor changes for our personal tastes: shallots instead of onion, added peas and unintentionally doubled the parmesan. (Didn't regret it.) I also fried some shrimp in the bacon grease along with some minced garlic and topped the risotto with it. I give this recipe two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Tiramisu Layer Cake
This cake was a huge hit! I took some reviewers' suggestions - 2 flavored layers, 1 plain layer; more coffee/ kahlua to soak into each layer; and substituted 2 packages of cream cheese, 5 Tb sour cream, and 1/2 c. heavy cream for the marscapone, which my grocery store didn't carry. This recipe was time consuming, but it definitely got results! Even my brother, who doesn't like sweets much, was impressed. I'll definitely make it again.

Butternut Squash Soup
One word: WOW! This recipe meets all of my criteria for 5 stars: easy, healthy, and delicious. I took some suggestions of other reviewers - I roasted the squash first (much easier that way), added less cream cheese (I didn't have the full amount on hand), and added more cayenne (love a little spice). I used a hand blender to puree. Thanks, Mary, this recipe rocks!!!
