Anyone remember that song by Strauss, that was used for Space Odyssey 2001?
Dahn... dahn... dahn... DAHN DAHN!!
I apologize for the huge font. But any who, this is the most fitting music for my seemingly "post-comatose awakening". I was put to shame when I read my own description of this site... it said I was regularly blogging again... I'm sorry, clap me in irons?
In my defense, I do have a defense: school. And that's all I'll say. Worst school year of my life. And I'll have you know I did actually do some other cooking that didn't appear on this site! Pumpkin donuts, Japanese Christmas cake, cinnamon-sugar cookies, custard crostata.... I have most certainly been baking, just never got around to slapping the pictures up here.

Nevertheless, on the topic of school, my 'Hospitality' exam is coming up. And it's pretty disgusting stuff guys. Starter: Sweetcorn pancakes with chakalaka relish... apparently South African. Main: Fish Pie... 'nuff said. It's pretty bad, but as they say every cloud has a silver lining, in this case the dessert. Pavlovas. Easy, pretty and delish. It's a nice little gift from the SQA (Super Quokka Aliens)...(better known as the Scottish Qualifications Authority).
Practiced last Saturday for my exam, and these babies just made my night! They turned out perfectly, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. And the combination of red berries mixed with icing sugar on the top, cream and chocolate was just wonderful.
So without further ado, here is the wonderful recipe!
