Hello all! I know I've been extremely absent for about a month; my apologies. Sometimes life is just so full and busy that I have to practically force myself to open my laptop! I know a lot of people struggle with exactly the opposite, but I guess I'm just an old-fashioned girl born into a childhood from whence I draw memories that just don't involve personal computers....and those peaceful memories have stuck with me ever since. ;o)
Today I simply want to share two wonderful recipes with you! These are long overdue as they were prepared and enjoyed on Easter weekend, but I have not forgotten them, and I do hope you'll try them at some point.
The first recipe is: Easy Pavlova ---click here!
I was originally going to make a Ghirardelli Chocolate Coconut Torte, but didn't have all the ingredients I needed. Then my husband's amazing cook/baker of a Grandmother looked through what I did have, and saw that I had all the ingredients to make Pavlova, a fluffy, creamy Australian cake named after the famous ballet dancer, Anna Pavlova.
The recipe sounds like it might be difficult, but once you get going it really is very simple! Just be absolutely sure not to allow any water/grease/yolk to mix into your egg-whites.
