Working my way through some of my cookbooks. Here's a Tiramisu Cake I made from "The Cake Book" by Tish Boyle. Halved the recipe & made only 1 layer instead of 2, since this was just a trial. Turned out pretty good, considering my oven has been acting up. I was expecting the cake to be more tender & taller but I know it has to do with my oven not mainting its heat. Also made Olive Garden's Tuscan Garlic Chicken. Now that exceeded my expectations, tasted just like Olive Garden's! (Trying to go all Italian with dinner.)





Here's how its suppose to look if I made the full recipe (picture from book)



Will post the recipe later if anybody's interested. Have to drive my girls to dance class.
