    Aww, thanks for the shout-out, Gene! Yet another mashup I need to bookmark. 😀

    To all you folks out there, the original tiramisu recipe has coffee (espresso) in it, but this “pumpkin” version does not. Don’t kill me; I PROMISE it’s super-yummy, nonetheless!

  2. Pumpkin tiramisu. Two words I never thought I’d read together, but make my heart smile. Great links as always, Gene!

  3. So much good stuff. This time I’m heading to Chuck Wendig, Kait Nolan and Jami Gold. Thank you for faithfully compiling links for us!

    Thanks for another great mashup, Gene. I think I can handle reading one more post today. My eyeballs are aching for the 4th day now. Might be a sinus infection. 😦 I’ll save the rest for later. I save all your Blog Treasure posts. Gotta hang on to these gems!
