Straight from Savannah

Straight from Savannah today…I little sweet treat from Paula once again.

I love tiramisu, and this easy dessert can be made ahead of your upcoming summer party. It’s very easy to whip up and “oh so yummy!”

Also, if you still haven’t checked-out Paula Deen’s website you should really take some time to do so. It’s organized so that you can search all her recipes and there’s an print button to easily print out her recipes…see here.
