Cranberry Cornmeal Linzer Cookies
My daughter-in-law loves these type of cookies so we made one batch together. We should have doubled it as these were yummy! We used seedless raspberry jam (microwave for 15 seconds before spreading on the cookie). Don't bake until brown but follow the recipe! Came out perfect, not too sweet. We forgot to "finish" them with powdered sugar but will next time I make these for my family.

Tatertot Casserole
I have made this recipe 3x now and I found a way that I like it. First time, followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding 4 eggs and baking the tater tots 10 minutes before adding them. The result was good but I knew this recipe could be even better. Second time, I wanted to increase the flavor profile so I added a layer of sauteed vegetables: diced onions, peppers, mushrooms and zucchini but goofed by using turkey sausage. What I learned is that this tastes best with more salt and fat. Thus, the third time I made this I used regular pork sausage, a variety of veges (listed above) and more cheese. I built it like a lasagna: first layer sausage, than a little cheese, sauteed veges, a little more cheese, the tater tots, a little more cheese and finally poured in the egg mixture. And yes, of course, topped with a little more cheese. I baked it for 45 minutes and it came out perfect. Sorry, don't know how much cheese I used but my family readily ate it.

Caramel-Macchiato Tiramisu Parfaits
I made this for our holiday dessert and everyone raved about it. I used a trifle bowl instead of making individual servings to allow everyone to eat as much as they wanted. And, though I used strong coffee (at least I thought so!) I should have made it stronger yet as the pound cake absorbs a lot of the coffee flavor thus making it fairly mild. I left out the chocolate as some family members are allergic to it. Recipe is sweet but I knew my family would be happy! As people left my house, I was asked when I was going to make it again so they could come over!
