One of the things on my 30 before I’m 30 list AND one of the goals for 2012 was to make homemade tiramisu for Philly.

He loves it! It’s his favorite dessert.

So, I thought, for Father’s Day, I would make it. Little did I know, it was an all day affair! Seriously! That stuff has to sit in the fridge half the “baking time”.

I followed The Pioneer Woman’s tiramisu recipe. It’s amazing.

I learned two things.. read the instructions VERY carefully and ladyfingers are not the easiest of things to find.


I will say, it was really much better the day after I made it and it had time to set up well in the fridge.


My food critic of a husband enjoyed it, after he gave me his detailed opinion on how to improve it for next time. Either way, I think it was worth the trouble and I will be glad to make it again! It’s not that complicated of a dessert.. just time consuming.

Also, next time, I will remember my real camera and not just have iPhone pics.

  1. Oh my gosh I know!! I made it for Tim’s birthday a few years ago and had the hardest time! I started at 10 am along with the rest of the stuff for dinner that night and didn’t finish until past when we normally eat! I couldn’t find ladyfingers anywhere! I ended up making them…let’s just say I bet the ones pre-bought are a little better.

    I’m glad he enjoyed it!! And your husband sounds like Tim with offering suggestions. Tim is very good at that as well.

  2. Yummy!!! We had the worlds best tiramisu on our cruise last year.
