What is Pistachio Tiramisu?

Pistachio tiramisu is our fun twist on the classic Italian dessert, combining the rich, creamy layers of traditional tiramisu with the unique and nutty flavor of pistachios. We create a traditional filling using mascarpone cheese and sugar but add pistachio cream. Then we double down on the pistachio flavor by also adding the cream to the espresso mixture that we soak the ladyfingers in. 

Topped with a sprinkle of crushed pistachios, this tiramisu not only tastes heavenly but also looks absolutely stunning with its vibrant green garnish. It’s a sophisticated yet simple dessert that’s sure to impress anyone who tries it!

Ingredients You Need

  • Mascarpone Cheese – This creamy, rich cheese is the heart of tiramisu — it gives this dessert its signature smooth and velvety texture.
  • Granulated Sugar – We use standard white sugar to sweeten the creamy mascarpone mixture.
  • Pistachio Cream – This is the key to infusing nutty flavor into both the whipped cream mixture and the ladyfinger layer.
  • Cold Heavy Cream – Using heavy cream helps to give the whipped cream layer a fluffy and airy texture.
  • Vanilla Extract – We love how vanilla complements the pistachio and coffee notes but if you want to double down on the pistachio flavor you can use pistachio extract, too. 
  • Chilled Espresso or Strong Brewed Coffee – Soaking the ladyfingers in espresso gives them the classic robust coffee flavor in tiramisu.
  • Ladyfingers – We use these delicate, airy cookies to form the layers of the tiramisu. Once they soak up the espresso they form a luscious light and spongy texture.
  • Crushed Pistachios for Garnish – Sprinkling crushed pistachios adds a delightful crunch and a burst of color on top. It makes for the prettiest presentation!

How to Make this Easy Pistachio Tiramisu

  1. Make the Cream Filling. Add the mascarpone and granulated sugar to a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer. Then, pour in the pistachio cream, heavy cream, and vanilla and mix briefly on low before increasing the speed in intervals until medium peaks form. Set aside. 
  2. Whip Up the Espresso Mixture. Whisk together the chilled espresso and pistachio cream. 
  3. Assemble. Form the bottom layer by first dipping the ladyfingers in the espresso mixture and then placing it in the baking dish. Then, use a rubber spatula to spread the whipped cream over the top. Do the same to create the second layer before covering and refrigerating overnight.
  4. Serve. When ready to serve, sprinkle the crushed pistachios evenly over the top of the tiramisu.

Variations

  • Chocolate – Incorporate a layer of melted dark chocolate or chocolate ganache between the layers of mascarpone and ladyfingers.
  • Chocolate Shavings – Top the tiramisu with chocolate shavings or cocoa powder along with the crushed pistachios.
  • Mixed Berries – Add a layer of fresh mixed berries such as raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries between the mascarpone layers.
  • Lemon Zest – Add lemon zest to the mascarpone mixture for a refreshing citrusy flavor.
  • Nutella Swirl – Swirl Nutella into the mascarpone mixture for a chocolate-hazelnut twist.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

Yes, you can store leftover tiramisu! Just know that as it sits the ladyfingers may become soft as they soak up the moisture from the other layers. 

Pistachio tiramisu can be stored for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Cover it tightly with plastic wrap or store slices in airtight containers. 

Freeze tiramisu for up to 3 months in freezer bags or wrapped in plastic wrap.

How to Make Homemade Greek Yogurt

Two glass Weck jars full of homemade Greek yogurt stacked on top of each other.

Have you ever wondered if you could make that creamy, dreamy Greek yogurt right in your own kitchen? It’s easier than you think! Let us show you How to Make Homemade Greek Yogurt in just a few simple steps with only two ingredients.

Two wek jars on top of each other full of homemade Greek yogurt.

What is Homemade Greek Yogurt?

Greek yogurt is a rich and creamy dairy product that’s rich in probiotics and packed full of protein. Unlike regular yogurt, Greek yogurt undergoes an extra straining process that removes much of the whey, making it super thick and velvety. This not only gives it an amazing mouthfeel but also packs it with more protein and fewer carbohydrates.

Greek yogurt has a delicious tangy flavor that adds a zing to both sweet and savory dishes! It’s an incredibly versatile ingredient — you can dress it up with a drizzle of honey and fresh berries for breakfast or use it as a base for creamy dips and dressings.

Ingredients You Need

  • Milk – You can use 2% but we recommend whole milk for the creamiest yogurt. 
  • Plain Yogurt – Be sure to use yogurt with live active cultures which help to form the Greek yogurt. 

How to Make Homemade Greek Yogurt

  1. Heat the Milk. Fill a large saucepan with the milk and heat on medium heat. Using a wooden spoon, stir the milk periodically. Use a thermometer to regularly monitor the temperature of the milk and take the pan off of the stove when it reaches 185 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. Cool the Milk. Allow the milk to cool naturally or put it in an ice bath to expedite cooling. 
  3. Add Yogurt. When the milk reaches 110 degrees Fahrenheit, measure out 1 cup of it and pour it into a bowl with the yogurt. Whisk the two ingredients together until it’s lump-free and then stir it into the warm milk.
  4. Incubate. Transfer the mixture to a clean glass container or bowl and cover it with a kitchen towel or lid before moving it to a place in your kitchen where it will remain at 110 degrees Fahrenheit for 6-12 hours. A yogurt maker is a good storage spot, or you can leave it in a lit oven or an area in your kitchen that is warm. 
  5. Strain and Store. Once the yogurt has reached the desired level of tanginess, strain it by pouring it into a fine mesh strainer (lined with cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel) that is settled on top of a bowl. Allow it to rest for a couple of hours until it is the consistency you prefer. Then transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator.

Variations

  • Honey – Once the yogurt is finished incubating, drizzle in some honey for sweetness. 
  • Berries – Sprinkle in some berries for a fruity snack. 
  • Vanilla – Add a splash of vanilla extract for an amazingly fragrant Greek yogurt. 
  • Zest – Shave in orange, lime, or lemon zest for brightness. 
  • Spices – Shake some nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice into the yogurt for warm flavor. 

Can I Store Leftovers? 

You can definitely store this yogurt. In fact, it lasts a while in the fridge! 

Greek yogurt should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for 1-2 weeks.

Homemade Greek Yogurt Recipe

Learn how to make homemade Greek yogurt with 2 ingredients and simple steps for a budget-friendly option tastier than store-bought varieties!
Author: Food Dolls

Equipment

  • 1 Large Saucepan
  • 1 Kitchen Thermometer
  • 1 Large Bowl with a Lid
  • 1 Cheesecloth or Kithcen Towel
  • 1 Strainer

Ingredients

  • 8 cups 2% or whole milk preferably whole for a creamier yogurt
  • ½ cup plain yogurt with live active cultures

Instructions

  • Pour the milk into a large saucepan.
    8 cups 2% or whole milk
  • Heat the milk over medium heat until it reaches 185°F. Use a kitchen thermometer to check the temperature.
  • Stir the milk occasionally to prevent a skin from forming and to ensure even heating.Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • Allow the milk to cool down to 110°F. Tip: To speed up the cooling process, you can place the saucepan in an ice bath.
  • Once the milk has cooled to 110°F, take about 1 cup of the milk and mix it with the yogurt in a small bowl until smooth.
    ½ cup plain yogurt with live active cultures
  • Pour this mixture back into the saucepan and stir gently to combine.
  • Pour the milk mixture into a container or bowl. Cover it with a lid or a clean kitchen towel.
  • Place the container in a warm environment where it can maintain a temperature of about 110°F. You can use an oven with the light on, a yogurt maker, or a warm spot in your kitchen.
  • Let the mixture incubate for 6-12 hours, depending on how tangy you like your yogurt. The longer it incubates, the tangier it will be. After the incubation period, the mixture should have thickened into yogurt.
  • To make Greek yogurt, strain the yogurt to remove excess whey. Place a cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel over a fine mesh strainer, and set it over a bowl.
  • Pour the yogurt into the strainer and let it drain for at least 2 hours, or until it reaches your desired thickness.
  • Store it in the refrigerator and consume within 1-2 weeks.

How to Make Shrimp Avocado Salad with Tahini Dressing

  1. Prep and Cook the Shrimp. Place the shrimp in a colander and rinse before patting them dry and coating them with Cajun seasoning, oil, salt, and pepper. Then, place them in a pre-heated skilled and sear until cooked through. Transfer the shrimp to a plate to cool. 
  2. Make the Corn. Using a sharp knife, slice the corn kernels off of the cobs before adding them to a skillet that has been pre-heated and drizzled with oil. Place the kernels in the skillet and saute until browned. Transfer to a bowl. 
  3. Prep the Veggies. Chop the herbs, lettuce, and red onions, slice the tomatoes in half, and dice up the cucumber. Place the prepared vegetables in a large bowl. 
  4. Whisk Up the Dressing. Stir together the oil, lime juice, Greek yogurt, minced garlic, chives, dill, parsley, and water in a small bowl.
  5. Put the Salad Together. Add the charred corn and cooked shrimp to the bowl of vegetables and toss before folding in the diced avocados.
  6. Finish and Serve. Add the dressing to the salad and gently toss to coat all of the ingredients. Serve immediately or refrigerate briefly before serving. If not serving immediately, wait until you’re ready before adding the avocado and dressing. 

Variations

  • Spicy Mango – Add diced mango and a dash of hot sauce for a sweet and spicy twist that’ll make your taste buds tingle.
  • Mediterranean – Toss in some kalamata olives, feta cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
  • Citrus Basil – Swap the lime for a mix of lemon and orange juice, and add fresh basil for a bright and zesty flavor combo.
  • Shrimp and Quinoa Power Salad – Mix in cooked quinoa for a protein-packed, hearty version that’s perfect for a filling lunch.
  • Asian-Inspired – Add shredded carrots, edamame, and a sesame ginger dressing for a fresh, Asian twist.
  • Tropical – Include pineapple chunks and toasted coconut flakes for a refreshing, island vibe.

Can I Store Leftovers? 

You can absolutely store leftovers but be sure to keep the components separate so that the greens don’t get soggy!

To refrigerate, store the components of the salad separately in airtight containers for about three days. 

While you can store the cooked shrimp for up to 3 months in the freezer, we don’t recommend freezing the other ingredients of the salad.

How to Make Peaches and Strawberry Fruit Ice Cream

  • Nuts – Sprinkle in some finely chopped nuts like almonds or pecans for a delightful crunch and added richness.
  • Chocolate – Drizzle in some melted dark chocolate or add a handful of mini chocolate chips to create a decadent chocolate-fruit combo.

How to Make Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

  4. Stuff the Peppers. Take the peppers out of the oven and uncover. Transfer the meat and vegetables to the peppers and sprinkle cheese over the top. 
  5. Bake the Filled Peppers. Place the peppers back in the oven and bake until the cheese is slightly browned and bubbly.

Lamb kofta burgers.

If you’ve been looking for ways to upgrade your burgers, you might just fall in love with our crave-worthy Lamb Kofta Burgers! Inspired by the rich and aromatic dishes of the Middle East, this recipe combines juicy ground lamb with an irresistible blend of spices and fresh herbs for a truly unforgettable burger.

A lamb kofta burger on a plate with fries.

What are lamb kofta burgers?

Our lamb kofta burgers are a mouthwatering twist on a classic burger, bringing all the vibrant flavors of the Middle East right to your plate. “Kofta” refers to a spiced meatball or patty in many parts of the Middle East, South Asia, and the Balkans, and these burgers are our take on the traditional version. We mix juicy ground lamb with a heavenly blend of spices like cumin, 7 spice, coriander, and allspice, plus fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro. Then we throw in some finely chopped onions and garlic and cook it up for a burger that’s bursting with flavor!


These lamb kofta burgers are rich with a flavor profile that’s anything but ordinary. Serve them up with a dollop of creamy yogurt sauce, tangy tzatziki, or nutty tahini dressing, all tucked into a toasted bun or warm pita bread. No matter how you customize it, we guarantee this burger is bound to be a crowd-pleaser!

Ingredients You Need

  • Ground Lamb Or Ground Beef – While we love using lamb, you can use ground beef if you prefer.
  • Jalapeno – We like to add a little kick to our burgers with this spicy goodness — feel free to dial it down or take it up a notch depending on your palate.
  • Garlic – Garlic adds savory depth to the burger — in our house, no burger is complete without it!
  • Onion – Onions bring a subtle sharpness to the table and perfectly balance the richness of the meat.
  • Parsley – Parsley adds a pop of vibrant color and a burst of fresh flavor.
  • Cilantro – Cilantro adds a slightly citrusy zing that pairs beautifully with the other spices.
  • Ground Allspice – We love sprinkling in this in for warm, subtle sweetness. 
  • Ground Coriander – Earthy and lemony, coriander seeds add a warm, nutty flavor that’s simply irresistible.
  • Ground Cumin – Smoky and slightly peppery, cumin is a must-have for that authentic Middle Eastern flavor.
  • 7 Spice – This is a magical blend of spices that’s like a flavor bomb. It gives our burgers a rich and complex flavor profile.
  • Sea Salt – This essential seasoning makes all the flavors pop!
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper – This classic spice adds just the right amount of gentle heat that rounds out all of the other ingredients.

How to Make Lamb Kofta Burgers

  1. Combine. Pulse together everything except for the lamb in a food processor. Once the texture is fine but chunky, pour it into a bowl with the lamb and use your hands to mix it together until the ingredients are evenly dispersed. 
  2. Make Patties. Form the lamb mixture into uniform-sized patties. 
  3. Cook. Place the patties on a skillet, in the oven, or on the grill. Then, cook until they reach your preferred doneness. 
  4. Serve. Allow the patties to rest briefly and serve with toasted buns, sumac onions, and tzatziki sauce.

Variations

  • Meat – You can swap out the lamb or beef for ground chicken or turkey or mix together a combination of ground meats. 
  • Cheese – Crumble in a bit of feta for a tangy addition to the burger or sprinkle in your favorite shredded cheese — cheddar, gouda, mozzarella, and parmesan all work well. 
  • Herbs – Add more fresh flavor by mixing in basil, rosemary, or thyme. Or, if you’re not a fan of cilantro, substitute Thai basil or dill. 
  • Smokiness – Give the burgers a smoky flavor with harissa or smoked paprika. 
  • Citrus – Brighten up the burgers with a bit of lemon zest. 

Can I Store Leftovers? 

You can absolutely store these burgers — they’re perfect for meal prep

Place leftover lamb burgers in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. 

Freeze lamb burgers in a freezer-safe container or freezer bag for up to 3 months.
