I love making tiramisu and it is so easy to make. What I do not like about it is that I cannot give any to my son because of the raw eggs, brandy and coffee. Since I think it is much healthier to give him sweets that I make at home, rather than bought, I had to come up with something to replace the classical tiramisu.
It goes like this:
- 20 pieces Savoiardi (lady fingers)
- a bowl of chopped strawberries (I don't have a precise quantity for this, but the more, the better)
- 500gr mascarpone
- 200gr vegetable liquid cream (spelt d'avoine in my case)
- 2 Tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp agave syrup
- 1 mug good quality naturally
- Start with brewing the coffee, add some vanilla and let it cool. I don't add any sugar, as the lady fingers are sweet enough to my taste.
- Secondly, put in a bowl the mascarpone, the liquid cream, the sugar and the vanilla and mix well. When it looks quite compact, let it rest in the fridge until you prepare the rest of the cake.

That's what I hope for in terms of gardening: a new year with plenty of roses, roses for indoors and roses in the garden. Of course, there's more to gardening than roses, but I tend to develop an obsession about them. Well, I've heard of worse obsessions than this. I also have a few other things I wish for in the new year: - a better garden in terms of plants arrangement and quantity of blooms - taking more regular notes about what's going on - taking more photos with my camera instead of my phone And to prove that the third line is more of a wish than a resolution, here's a first one I took using the new version of Instagram, so yes, using my phone. There is a smal arrangement I made with some cypress twigs and oriental hellebores
