SHOPBOP SALE

i feel like i have to get this posted asap because everything starts selling out when does these big sales! i bought a few things, one of them being these that i really love. i lost my last pair and have been needing to replace them so now was the perfect time. you will wear them with everything, all summer long. they’re worth the $100+ price tag. and here are nice things i didn’t buy but i would if i could! the code is EVENT18 and it’s $20 for ordered under $500 and 25% for orders over $500+. i’m in love with both of the loveshackfancy dresses i included, they’d be the perfect thing to wear all summer long!  – joanie

TIRIMISU

the best tiramisu recipe | designlovefest

my mom is the queen of desserts, we used to have a dessert corner growing up at our house and she always had something on hand whether we had guests or just our family. she has some classics that i can picture her making, mini chocolate tarts with fresh raspberries in the summer, bread pudding, creme brûlée with the perfect burnt sugar crust, molten chocolate cakes with warm liquid centers, toffee in the winter and tiramisu. the story that goes with the tiramisu recipe is that it was my mom’s favorite from an Italian restaurant in telluride and she really wanted the recipe. so my dad offered to leave a $500 tip after one of their meals in exchange for the recipe and they agreed. the restaurant has since closed which makes the recipe even more special. i’ve never attempted to make it because truthfully i’m always been intimidated. it feels so involved, the layers, the soaking, the egg whites, the dusting. but it was so simple (and i’m not just saying that) and it really is a high impact dessert, you make this for a dinner party and people are going to be impressed! – joanie

Tiramisu 
serves 12
recipe by meg cusack, adapted from Excelsior Cafe in Telluride, CO

• 1 400 g package of lady fingers (not all stores carry these, we found ours at sprouts but an italian market would have them too)
• 4 cups boiling water
• 3 teaspoons instant coffee (can be decafe or regular!)
• 6 tablespoons Kahlua
• 2 tablespoons + 1/3 cup sugar
• 3 egg yolks
• 1 1/2 pounds mascarpone cheese
• 10 egg whites beaten to stiff peaks
• unsweetened cocoa powder
• 2 -3 ounces bittersweet chocolate

how to make:

• bring water to a boil in a saucepan. turn off heat and add instant coffee, kailua, and  2 tablespoons sugar. stir mixture and set aside.

• with a hand mixer, beat 10 egg whites to stiff peaks form, stopping from time to time to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. you know the peaks have formed when you pull the blender up and the egg whites hold their shape. in a separate bowl, blend egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar together with a whisk, stir in mascarpone cheese and then fold in stiff egg whites with a spatula; set aside.

• use a 9 x 13 ” glass pan and then dip 1/2 of each lady finger in coffee mix and layer in bottom of pan, generally lady fingers have one side that is crunchy with sugar, soak the other side and put the soaked side up (about 20 ladyfingers).

• next spread 1/2 of mascarpone mix on top. sift a solid layer of cocoa powder over top. sprinkle 1/2 of grated bittersweet chocolate on top of this.

• Repeat everything exactly as you did on the first layer. Top with cocoa powder, and shaved chocolate. chill in refrigerator at least 1 hour, but ideally 2-3 hours if you have the time.

• Cut into pieces and serve! this will last 2 days, but after that it starts to get a bit soggy so eat up!

one note from my mom: the ladyfingers you should use are found near the cookies at an import store- not the ones found in the dairy section of the grocery store.
