8 Weeks of Easy Family Dinners E-Cookbook!
Hello Yellow Bliss Road fans! My name is Sarah McKenna, and I blog over at Bombshell Bling. My blog is about a little bit of everything – jewelry making, recipes, holidays, crafts, home decor, and parties. I have a particular fondness for s’mores recipes and fun Halloween ideas. Today I am going to veer from those two fixations to share a recipe with you for one of our favorite desserts to serve to company: Pavlova!
Pavlova is a light, yet decadent treat. My husband spent two years in Australia serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint, and this was one of his favorite foods to which he was introduced during his time in Australia. Pavolva is a dessert that was created in honor of the ballerina Anna Pavlova during a tour that she did in Australia and New Zealand.
I have served this dessert at many dinner parties and events, and every time that I do people ask me for the recipe. And here’s a little surprise for you: it’s shockingly good for you, at least in comparison to other desserts of similar decadent tastes. It is one of my favorite desserts to make while I am on Weight Watchers (sorry, I don’t know how many points it is on the new system), because it is practically just egg whites, so the whipping cream is really the only thing adding serious fat and calories to this tasty treat!
This particular pavlova recipe is slightly adapted from a version that my in-laws found in an old cookbook called The Silver Palate. I shared it on my blog a couple of years ago, but since then my mother-in-law has tweaked it a bit to start making individual serving pavlovas so that they are prettier for serving to company.
Now let’s get cooking! If you would like to see step by step pictures of this process then see my original blog post HERE.
