Fave Memory. Snow Ice Cream! My granny lived with us when I was growing up in Ohio and we would have snow days, she'd say go get me some snow and I'll make ice cream. So I'd fill up a big bowl and she'd whip it up. I'm not exactly sure what was in it- maybe vanilla, milk, perhaps an egg, chocolate sauce on top. It was cheap and good and I remember if fondly. Hoping for a snowy winter here in Portland this year!
FAVE MEMORY: For as long as i can remember my mom has made this absolute classic for every family celebration we have - it would not be a party if there wasn't a pavlova!! She has offered to make other things - she makes a mean trifle and is an excellent baker - but my sister and I insist on the pavlova, and our kids love it too now. It's completely delicious, surprisingly simple to make and looks really impressive on the table. Crisp meringue, with a gooey centre, lashings of cream and a mountain of fresh fruit - it's an absolute stunner. It has to be the Delia Smith recipe as mom swears by it and even the book itself holds so many memories for me.
My FAVE MEMORY relates to travelling with my family through Europe while visiting relatives, and my 10 year old son had decided that each day was not complete unless he had had a gelato, which was fine with us too as the gelati were so delicious, especially in Spain and Italy. The gelati were presented so beautifully in Spain with fresh fruit and chocolates often placed alongside the colourful trays.
Favourite Food Memory. An eagerly awaited treat, Mum's Party Trifle is served in a glass dish showcasing the beautiful layers of jelly-soaked swiss roll, fruit, custard and cream, topped with bright sprinkles and crowned with a cherry. As a child I loved helping to make the layers and watching the dessert take shape during the day ready for the big reveal at the party!
One of Mom's many famous deserts was her individual Baked Alaskas. She usually made them with French Vanilla ice cream (Dad's favorite), but I thought it would be fun to pair the pineapple and coconut with raspberry ice cream instead.
Once upon a time, my favorite comfort food was peanut butter mixed with marshmallow creme. A few weeks ago, after a particularly-ugly-dreadful day, I eagerly went to the kitchen to prepare my recipe. Sadly, I found no marshmallow creme in the cupboard! But I did find a tub of frozen topping in the fridge. I mixed peanut butter with the topping—it immediately became my new comfort food. BONUS: fewer calories!
