“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead.”
~AA Milne, when we were very young
NOTE: I am away at the moment helping my mother with her treatment for lung cancer. I have set up a few posts to post whilst I am away as a special surprise. Some are new and some are reposts of old favourites that you may have forgotten, or if you are a new reader may not even have seen. I'll be back at the end of May, but in the meantime . . . Enjoy!
PS - I will only have sporadic internet use, so if you ask a question and I don't get back to you . . . it's not that I don't want to. It just may take me a while.

I love desserts, and like most women, I have a sweet tooth. I really want to indulge now and again, but it can be a real struggle at times to find a balance between decadent indulgence and watching my waist line. It can be sometimes difficult to find a dessert recipe which is not only delicious, but at the same time falls within the bounds of healthy eating!
I believe that this recipe here today does just that. You get to feed your sweet tooth, but there is very little guilt involved, as this dessert uses low fat ingredients and fresh fruit! It’s a win/win proposition!
Meringues can be kind of tricky for some people. But this video clearly outlines several secrets to making beautifully crisp and delicious meringues, so you needn’t be afraid to tackle them!
I love lemon curd as well, but it can be rather high in calories . . . using this lovely passion fruit curd, solves that problem beautifully . . . and goes so very well when spooned over the crisp meringues. Garnished with some lovely red currants, this is a dessert that will not only be pleasing to the eyes and taste, but also to your waist line!
This is truly a dessert that you won’t need to feel guilty about indulging in or serving to even your most discerning guests!
