I use many recipes where coffee is one of ingredients. My favorite recipe is probably Tiramisu recipe.

Here is the link to my Tiramisu recipe where you can use non-coffee bevaregas and coffee. The result is always excellent.

yeah! I am excited that there is this group for cooking with coffee and that now I am apart of this fantastic idea exchange. My husband and I are just getting started in the coffee business and our shop should be opening in August 2009, so I am toying around with coffee in my recipes now. Those lemon scented espresso bars definitely got my attention.

My wifes chocolate cake recipe uses a cups worth of shots of espresso in place of the water. It is to die for! I know the chocolate frosting has some espresso in it too. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

One of the best things I did was ground coffee fine and rubbed it all over a good steak and cooked in on the BBQ it made a nice crusting and also had a good coffee flavor in the juices of the steak, it was not initially my idea but I have tweaked it and I will make it over and over.

Yum... nog is good. I always do a combination of dark (aged, not spiced) rum and bourbon. Or even just bourbon. My favorite is Cruzan Single Barrel or Pussers Rum with Makers Mark or Knob Creek bourbon. I've not done the espresso and chocolate shavings... should try that.

A way to shortcut the eggnog is to melt a high-quality NATURAL french vanilla ice cream. That said, my local grocery sells a really nice natural-tasting eggnog, so I usually just use that. I should try making the real stuff though.

Egg Nog- an old fashion was perfect. I safely prepared egg whites, egg yokes mixed with sugar, heavy whipped cream, vanilla extract, 2 cups cold milk, freshly grated nutmeg and for the grown up "nog" version, rum. Folded it all together and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes. spooned into 6 oz martini glasses and topped with chocolate shavings and a warm shot of espresso...soo yummy. I served it with lady fingers to dip and nibble on. Please share your recipes. I have always wondered why the stuff in stores is so thick and now that I have made it, it is to mimic the texture of eggy-ness...but that stuff is sooo gross to me. Taste more like chemicals and fake rum flavor. My recipe turned out smooth and deceitfully light.

Bananas Foster with coffee. This is a fun simple project, make a quick caramel sauce with butter and brown sugar, add some orange juice and a few shots of coffee with splash or two of rum. If you are unsure of a rum choice you would be surprised at the level of cooking knowledge your liquor store clerk has, or at least I was. I bought one for flavor and one for flame power! Cut up bananas and let them simmer in the sauce for 12 minutes or so. Plate it and pour a ring of 100 proof rum or more and light it up! Sounds silly but it's kind of fun. We served Vanilla Bean icecream from scratch to compliment this grown up sundae.
