I have never really liked to cook or bake. (I have liked baking a bit more because I love sweets!) I do love to eat, but I had the attitude that there was no time to spend cooking, it took too long. Well, it's been really fun being married and having someone to cook/bake with! I think that was my problem, I LOVE being with people and cooking was lonely. Adam and I decided to try to bake this incredible dessert that we tasted at a party my mom had. It is an Australian dessert named after a Russian princess....Pavlova. It is divine! We thought it looked hard to make, but we didn't anticipate trying it out 4 times. The first attempt just stayed in liquid form. We did everything wrong that you could while making meringue..we fished out egg shell with our fingers, we used a plastic bowl, a drop of egg yolk was in the egg whites, the egg whites were cold. After reading how to do it, we were laughing so hard because we checked off everything on the list that you shouldn't do!
Here is our 3rd try...at 2 o'clock in the morning
Ahh..the finished product. It was worth coating the entire kitchen in sugar, going through 36 eggs, and doing lots of research about meringue!
