A while back I was off gallivanting with two of my cousins who have a myriad of food allergies. Even more than me!
I wanted to bring a fun dessert along, but was trying to find something they both could eat.
Settling on a scrumptious-sounding meringue recipe I found on foodnetwork.com, I emailed the ingredient list to the girls and got a green-flag that they both could eat it.
Although the dessert did not transport well (could have been the way some one haphazardly tossed it in the car) it tasted really, really good. So good, I made it for my book club friends the other night, to their rave reviews.
This isn’t hard to make, just takes a little time, but will leave your guests impressed! I promise!
And for those of you who like tidbits of odd information, Pavlova is named after the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova. The dessert is believed to have been created in honor of the dancer either during or after one of her tours to Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.
