Late last year I found a new love. I found a love for cooking and baking. Every Sunday or almost every Sunday I make it a point to cook for the fambam on our Sunday family day. Everyone says what I made is really good but for some reason, some crazy reason, I can't seem to eat whatever I make. I can chow down two or three spoons of whatever I make but that it's. After that I just can't anymore, but I can however, still eat whatever other people make.
Anyone else experiencing this? Or am I just strange like that?
a couple sundays ago I made a cheesy Mexican Casserole for the family lunch.
yummy yummy yummy Tiramisu from my Betty Crocker cookbook.
For all of you guys who are in the mood for some yummy Tiramisu here's a copy of the recipes taken straight out of my Betty Crocker Cookbook:
6 large egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 pund mascarpone cheese or 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups whipping (heavy) cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 packages (3 ounces each) ladyfingers
1/4 cup cold prepared espresso or very strong coffee
2 tablespoons rum
1 tablespoon baking cocoa
1.) Beat egg yolks and sugar in 2-quart saucepan with wire whisk until well blended. Beat in milk. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly, reduce heat to low. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat.
2.) place plastic wrap or waxed paper directly onto egg yolk mixture in saucepan. Refrigerate 1 hour.
3.) Mix egg yolk mixture and cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Beat whipping cream and vanilla in chilled medium bowl and electric mixer on high speed until stiff.
4.) Separate ladyfingers horizontally in half. Mix espresso and rum. Drizzle ladyfingers with espresso mixture.
5.) Arrange half of the ladyfingers in single layer in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 11 x 7 x 1 1/2 inches. Spread half of the cheese mixture then half of the whipped cream over ladyfingers. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours or until set. Refrigerate any remaining dessert.
