Ooops! (Some housekeeping)

Posted by on Jul 31 2008 | General Ramblings

1. I am a bad sister. I neglected to mention that my wonderful cupcake teapot was a very thoughtful gift from my brother M. Thanks!

2. I found the Tayberries at a local farmers market – I think that Loganberries or Raspberries would swap in to the crumble very easily. Also, regarding the amount of sugar in the crumble: I found the fruit just right – sweet but tart. However a second opinion is that it’s very sweet. I think I have a high sugar tolerance :-)

Chocolate raspberry pavlova

Posted by on Jul 25 2008 | General Ramblings



Despite my love of chocolate I’d always resisted chocolate pavlovas. Pavlova is one of my favourite desserts, and messing with it seemed unnecessary.
And now… I maintain that position. This was tasty enough, but nothing wonderful.
