My wife is from Maine. Her Dad's second career of 3 was as a Maine State Trooper. He would tell some tales. Like chasing cars and seeing them disappear into a snowbank when they failed to make a turn. Or the time they shot the tires off a car and only put one bullet in the car body. They were something else.Good Morning.
The German may have been Danish and was text on a link in another thread. The title of the book in your coffee post: MROK seemed like such a strange word that I had Google check it.
Mrok is Polish for "darkness."
That is appropriate for the first full day of Autumn. It is a harbinger of what is coming, especially in my location (north of the northern most point in the US state of Maine). I don't understand how @Alasgun survives the Winter in good mental health. The absence of light at his latitude would drive me crazy!
Wow that looks really good! I want to sink my teeth into it! 😋I am trying different ideas of Tiramisu-type sweets for my shop. This strawberry-misu is the third trial and it's so good.

It's so perfect for anyone who doesn't want to use oven, clean a lot of utensils, or read through a lot of details in a recipe.
Please refer to any Tiramisu recipe, I improvised this when I got a small box of fresh, local strawberries from the supermarket.
1. replaced black coffee with the mixture of fresh strawberry and Advocaat and used the liquid to quickly soak the ladyfinger cookies.
2. used heavy cream, Mascarpone cheese, freeze-dried strawberry powder, and honey to create the cream layer. I didn't use eggs at all, too much troubles without critical enhancement imo.
3. let it sit in the fridge for at least 24 hours - it won't taste good otherwise.
4. It's the same freeze-dried strawberry powder on the top and some 90% bitter chocolate. I guess, the normal dehydrated strawberries can be used to make similar powder, or just use sliced/diced strawberries to create different finishing.
