Aw-some Coleslaw
I would love to make this coleslaw but wonder if you would use white vinegar or red wine vinegar? I don't want to mess this up the first time made. Thanks.

Baklava
OMG!!! This was absolutely delicious and exactly how I remembered it growing up! I used half walnuts and half pecans finely chopped in my food processor, which made this step so easy. As others suggested, I added 2 T. sugar and 1/2 t. more cinnamon to the nut mixture. Others also suggested giving it a more honey flavor so I added 1/4 C. honey to the sauce. I enjoy honey so this addition was a good one for me. If you are not a real honey fan, then you should not add the additional honey. I refrigerated the sauce to cool it off before pouring it on the hot out-of-the-oven baklava. After baking, the top phyllo layers were crispy and light - not soggy. Before baking, I tried to cut only through most of the layers to the bottom of the pan before pouring the sauce over it - its hard to judge, but made the effort. I did not toast the nuts-it tasted fabulous anyway. I baked only about 45 minutes - came out perfect. My husband and daughter who are not baklava fans liked it. My son and I LOVED it! This is not a low calorie dish, remember, but it is absolutely worth making. I ate 4 in two days - not a good idea for the waistline. I froze the other half of the recipe as others suggested. So delicious!!!

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle
"Excellent" is all I can say about this dessert. I read some reviews and took what I thought would work best with this dessert. I used 5 Skorr bars. I used the fat free white chocolate instant pudding but used 2% milk in making the pudding. Use the amount of milk that the box suggests. I also used 3 boxes of the pudding - 2 with the coffee ingredient and 1 without, which I used as the middle filling. (If you can find my picutre I submitted with my trifle bowl you can see how nice it turned out. I made the whipping cream and used a layer on the top. Adding the extra pkg of pudding layer and a top layer of whipping cream you do not have to double the recipe. Also I drizzled Hersheys Syrup over each brownie layer (3 layers). So the layers went like this: Bottom layer -thin layer of whipping cream, brownie layer, syrup, toffe pieces, white chocolate coffee pudding/whipping cream mixture, brownie layer, syrup, toffee pieces, white chocolate pudding/cream mixture (remember no coffee in this batch), brownie layer, syrup, toffee pieces, coffee pudding mixture, a nice layer of whipping cream, last Skorr bar pieces and syrup drizzled over the top. It is beautiful to look at too. Delicious and thanks for offering the recipe of this scrumptuous treat!!!
