‘The Word is Flood’


Memories rushed on the water stream,

Moments of laughter overflown…

Seconds of an endless dream,

That will always be our own.

Cascade of laughter

‘Cool Summer Dessert’


Have I got a treat for You:)

Pavlova with strawberry sauce

I don’t make Pavlova very often…and I don’t know why, because it’s one of the easiest recipes out there and one of the best desserts you can have on a summer afternoon:)

Ingredients: 4 egg whites, 200 g caster sugar, pinch of salt, 400 g fresh strawberries, 2 nectarines, 1 banana, 100 ml cream, 3 tbp icing sugar or ready sweet whipped cream.

Method: Use a hand mixer to beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks, add the salt, then add the sugar slowly while the mixer is at full power for about 8 minutes until the meringue looks glossy.

Spread it in form of a circle creating a crater on the baking tray. I’ve used a baking tray with a silicon sheet. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour.

Once out of the oven, let it cool and make the cream by whipping up the double cream with the icing sugar. Spread the cream over the meringue, cut the fruits in small chunks and spread over the top.

To make the strawberry sauce, I’ve used 250 g of the strawberry and blitzed it until I’ve got a smooth fresh sauce, which I’ve served with every piece of Pavlova.

The best way to serve Pavlova is very cold…it’s absolutely deliciously refreshing:)
