Hello, everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back and it's so good to see you all! My break from YBC flew by and although I didn't get as much done as I wanted on my new book, I did do a lot of cooking, a lot of visiting, a lot of relaxing, and some traveling. I had guests from out of town, out of the country and some I hadn't seen in twenty years. I wrote blog posts (including one for a hero who has initials HH, squee!), caught up on my e-mail and got a big start on a brand new series. In all, it's GOOD TO BE BACK!
I love me a box o' books!
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
The first part is a standard pudding type recipe. Mmmmm. So hard not to eat it straight out of the pan! So, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it boils. Boil for 1 minute, then take it off the stove. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
You'll have some delicious whipped cream (do not eat!) and some amazing marscapone with custard (do not eat!).
So, we never did find lady fingers at our store. A friend offered to send me some all the way from Portland. Isn't that sweet! I love cooking pals! But in the end, my kids wanted to use pirouette cookies.
But now we're going to put on the pirouette cookies. (Usually this would be the rest of the lady fingers.)
OK, my friends, I hope you enjoyed the fabulousness that is tiramisu and I'll see you all again next weekend!
