A very simple dinner at home tonight.....chicken picatta with butternut squash ravioli...a simple salad and a great bottle of wine.....tired but happy cook here. joey
As i 'm sure you know mimi, tiramisu is a true labor of love....i made it the zabaglione way with marsala, and soaked the lady fingers in an espresso/Kahlua mix. i was planning on adding tuaca to the mascarpone but left the bottle at home, so i used triple sec and a whiff of vanilla instead. I like this recipe over the non cooked egg yolks and egg whites version for restaurant use, but both ways are exquisite.....the zabaglione version takes a lot longer as the zabaglione...
Tiramisu two ways....
Wow everyone...so many wonderful looking plates with all around vibrancy. Mexican Sea Bass aka Corvina, grilled with roasted garlic butter, topped with tomato, basil and white bean relish. Fresh harvest squash ravioli with lacinato( tuscan kale)...the fish was so beautiful when it came in so i wanted to keep the dish simple. Dessert special was tiramisu which i will post those pix on the dessert thread. joey

If they 'can' and 'will' eat a nut crust which has lots of oil, i would think that you could use hazelnut, grape seed, hazelnut, avocado or even evoo oils in your crusts and doughs.....opens up the world of cobblers, crumbles, shortcakes, galettes, and pie!!!! Lots of switch a rooing for two though......aah,the life of the privileged and entitled! joey
