Classic Tiramisu
I'm giving this 5 stars because the actual recipe (from the back of one brand of ladyfingers, which I lost)makes perfect tiramisu, but this copy has a few flaws. The recipe calls for 2 (3 oz.)packages of soft ladyfingers. (Not 12 oz.) You also whip the yolks and sugar together until lemon colored BEFORE you cook in top of double boiler. (Beating AFTER cooking AS Well does cool the mixture and helps it to incorporate into the cheese) I often make a "half-batch" of this layered in a bread/loaf pan using all of an 8oz. container of mascarpone cheese (as well as the full 1/3 cup liguor). A better size that's just right for the hubby and me.

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup
This IS the BEST soup! If you like Italian sausage you will love this soup. I have served it several times to family, friends and even took it to work once- always with rave reviews and many requests for the recipe!

Flan II
So easy and so perfect! I wanted to make flan to go with a Mexican dinner, but didn't have condensed or evaporated milk, (which most of the flan recipes call for). I followed the recipe (adding NO vanilla) and both my husband and I thought the caramel flavoring was all it needed. I had no problem melting the sugar. Just remember to use only medium heat so it doesn't cook too fast. Thanks for a great, simple flan recipe!
