I had the best Sunday ever.
It started off well with my all time favorite parfait from Cafe Brasil. YUM.

Mom and I went to just about ever grocery store in Houston.
We made a phenomenal dinner.
Here are some pictures..

Our White Wine Sangria with Naked blueberry pomegranate juice, oranges, raspberries, and blueberries

Salmon in a brown butter sauce with capers and almonds! YUM
We did asparagus instead of green beans

Made a quinoa with thyme and scallions.

and an easy and DELICIOUS tiramisu, original recipe by Robin Miller.


  • 8 ounces regular or light cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipped cream, divided
  • 1 package ladyfingers
  • 1/2 cup prepared espresso, strong coffee, or coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Semisweet chocolate, grated, for garnish
  • ground cinnamon


In a medium mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Fold in 1 1/3 cups of whipped cream. Dunk ladyfingers in prepared coffee. Halve and place layer of ladyfingers in the bottom of 4 tall parfait glasses. Spoon half of cheese mixture over ladyfingers. Top with another layer of ladyfingers and remaining cheese mixture. Top with remaining ladyfingers. Mix a teaspoon of cinnamon in remaining whipping cream. Spoon whipped cream over top of parfaits.
