Tweet Spoonriver that is located by the Guthrie Theater. This place is know for using organic food, local growers and fresh ingredients... they did not disappoint. Danielle had the Cafe Brenda Burger made out of veggies, nuts and rice. I had a fresh green spring salad with herb goat cheese and a small cup of butternut squash soup. Everything was very tasty! We decided to take a look at the dessert tray and I told Danielle she would pick out what she wanted - I only wanted a bite. She settled on a cream puff with tiramisu filling and I ended up having about half! It was soooo good and I really wanted to create my own version.
It was a first for me making cream puffs. These aren't hard to do - don't be scared away! I also needed to come up with a filling with no eggs. Traditional tiramisu has uncooked eggs and that is something I did not want to deal with. I came up with a light, fluffy filling with a bit of Kahlua (you could use strong coffee if not a fan of alcohol). And to top it off is a chocolately ganache with a bit of more of Kahlua. The combination of all three really melded together nicely!
My taste tester was blown away and has already eaten 4 in 2 days! I was very pleased too with the results and now thinking of new fillings to try.... stop by another time to see what I come up with next!

I'm still by no means an expert with my new camera. I took the picture above in natural light and the one below in a light box. Either way, don't they look yummy!
Next time I hope both the girls can meet me!
