P is for Pavlova
For some reason I've been seeing the word pavlova a lot lately. Maybe because the light and fluffy pavlova is a popular dessert during this time of year, or perhaps it's because I've been reading so many wonderful food blogs lately and the pavlova seemingly pops up every now and again. Admittedly, I didn't even know what a pavlova was until about 3 weeks ago when the LA Times food section ran a little article about this dish. The Times carried a gorgeous picture of their version of the pavlova and that's when I decided I too wanted to make this dessert.
I found this recipe on the beautful smittenkitchen website. Making a pavlova was much easier than I thought it would be and even though my pavlova may not look as gorgeous as the LA Times version, it certainly tasted delicious!
