But it's so awesome. And if I ever bothered to put custard in it it would be like chocolate tiramisu!

Totally doable.  Make a quick version of tiramisu: rum soaked sponge cakes (use twinkies if you're desperate?!?), vanilla pudding and chocolate whipped cream.

Ladyfingers are pretty cheap, like a dollar a pack. I'll have to fool around with that. With the addition of the coffee whip cream Smiley I wonder if you can make coffee cannolis?

Yeah, but all I have in my pantry is twinkies and vanilla pudding.  I believe I have a can of Redi-Whip in my fridge too Wink  Aren't ladyfingers pretty dry?  How would you pipe the whip cream into the middle?  When there's a will, there's a way, I suppose...

Continuing the coffee and whipped cream direction we're headed, a couple shots of espresso poured into a cup with a bit of whipped cream in the bottom is HEAVEN.  Like someone concentrated a cup of regular coffee with cream and sugar.  Mmm.

Then again, I work at a coffee shop, so I make it a point to try something new every day until I've tried the whole menu! 

Have you tried making coffee in a French Press?  It releases a lot more of the essential oils in the coffee beans, so that any kind of coffee is more aromatic and, in my opinion, easier to drink.  It's the only time I can drink coffee black!

Speaking of French presses, my uncle (who lives an obsessively healthy lifestyle...eats perfectly, bikes 15 miles a day to work, yada,yada) just found out his cholestorol was sky high. Dr. couldn't figure it out until he mentioned he drank a cup of French press coffee every morning and had been doing so for the past 20 years. Seems the same essential oils that make it so damn tasty can also lead to high cholesterol. Just a word of caution. I love the stuff myself.

I useally drink mine black, but sometimes I like to add flavored Coffee Mate.  My favs are Chocolate Cream and French Vanilla.
Why are you shooting us with your hair dryer? Grin

Those are actually bananas! My friend was going to Germany to study and wanted a few pics of everybody and I hate boring pics so I started grabbing whatever was near me and posing with it. Apparently she keeps this one on her bathroom mirror. It would creep me out if someone was pointing bananas at me while I was sleepily brushing my teeth, but she's a weird girl Smiley

These are all great ideas, I'm gonna have to try them all!

And be really wired Smiley

Oh bannanas! I always thought they were glue guns..

Kahlua mudslide in coffee...mmm..sugar y goopy goodness...

I'm a faithful believer in coffee chocolate and mint.

Heat some milk, throw in a bag of mint tea in it, let it seep.
Make coffee, add chocolate, then the minty milk.

I could live off that beverage.

I like mint in my coffee too!  I usually add peppermint extract but I'll have to try it with mint tea!  Thanks for the suggestion Smiley

Wow, mint tea! I always just use the syrup. I think I had some french pressed coffee a couple of times. I can't really remember what it was like, I was sort of uncomfortable socially, but I was told it was the bestest thing for coffee. I'll have to try the esspreso/whip cream thing, I bet my coffeeshop will make it for me, I've become such a regular the just give me coffee. This is really ghetto but you could use a ziplock freezer bag to pipe whip cream. Just cut a small part of the corner off. Then you don't have to buy those expensive cake decorating bags and tips!
