Lesson Learned

When making Tiramisu, if you run out of cognac, as you are sniffing the various bottles of alcohol in your stash in order to find a suitable substitute, don't think "hmm... whiskey smells an awful lot like cognac" and proceed to use it as a straight substitute. It turns out that whiskey is a LOT stronger than cognac, and your meticulously peaked and folded egg whites and cream that you spent overly long watching to confirm that they did not seize up will end up tasting like a glorified, chewable whiskey shot. And nobody likes that. Well, except for perhaps Brianna...though I like to think she was only being polite.

The rest of dinner was very good though. Possibly because I made none of it. I'm planning to post some pictures- the heart shaped lobster ravioli was great- you should go buy some.
