Spring Recipe Contest Results
Many thanks to the finalists from our Spring 2013 recipe contest for their inspired crowd-pleasing submissions. Congratulations to the winning recipe, Three Cheese Tortellini Salad.
Notes from the Cuisinart Chefs
Easy to double or even triple for a crowd, this creative take on the traditional mayo-based pasta salad would be ideal for your next picnic or outdoor barbecue. Bright in color and flavor, this dish comes together in no time, as most of the prep work can be done in a Cuisinart food processor plus the tortellini does not even need to be boiled!
The Heavenly Chocolate Ganache Velvet Cake is true to its name. A thick coating of rich chocolate cloaks an intense red interior and a filling of slightly tart raspberry jam offsets the cake from being too sweet. Take the time to prepare this cake for someone truly special.
Comforting in its simplicity, Cherry Butter Crispsandwiches sweet cherry pie filling between a thin cookie-like crust and a brown sugar crumb topping. We like how the filling peeks through when the crisp is sliced into squares. For a variation try adding chopped toasted nuts to the topping or a few zests of orange or lemon rind to the filling.
Thank you to everyone who submitted recipes and again, congratulations to our winner. We look forward tasting more of your recipes.

Mocha Tiramisu Cupcakes (submitted by AmyInCA on 02/20/2011)
If you love Tiramisu, you’ve got to try these Mocha Tiramisu Cupcakes. The chocolate cupcake itself is moist, with a lovely mocha flavor and a hint of Kahlua. The espresso-Kahlua syrup really did wonders to the cupcakes. The Mascarpone frosting is light, creamy, smooth and fluffy.

Crabmeat & Latke Eggs Benedict (submitted by Iris M. on 01/02/2011)
To me, there's nothing better than a great breakfast. For the home cook, making breakfast at home doesn't mean you have to sacrifice quality or elegance. You can not only be creative and use elements that aren't traditionally used for breakfast, but you can have fun with the ingredients as well.

My Grandma used to make these Orange Cream Stuffed French Toasts for me as breakfast before school. Now, I’m a mother of 2 and I make them for my kids all the time to carry on the tradition. These French Toasts are creamy, flavorful and super delicious.
