Tiramisu III
I hate it when people "redo" a recipe that they have given 5 stars, however I am putting in my two cents worth. I am not sure that I have had a tiramisu before but it is my sis's fav so I tried it. She loved it and said it got better over time. I am making it again for the second time for my step-daughter. I used a 9 by 9 and made 1 1/2 times the mixture to fill my pan. I used Godiva Choc. liqueur in place of brandy. I also grinded up dark choc and milk choc covered espresso beans and sprinkled on top along with the cocoa. The soft ladyfingers from Trader Joe's worked great. I am not sure if this is what true tiramisu is supposed to taste like, but I really enjoyed it and will make again for special occasions. Thanks for the great recipe (and sorry for the revisions!)

Perfect Lemon Curd
I made this into lime curd instead and put it on little mini cheesecakes. They tasted just like key lime pie. I also used them on lemon scones. Mine did get a little eggy however I just kept stiring until it was really thick (about 30 mins) This is a keeper and I will be using it in my store.

Grandma Johnson's Scones
I thought that I had rated this before but I could not find it. I have been making these and selling them to the local coffee shop. They have asked me what I put in them (drugs) cause they can not keep them long!! They have people mad at them if they run out! I LOVE THESE SCONES and they are the easiest things to make.
