This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie choice is made by Shari of Whisk: a food blog. She chose Floating Islands, on page 401-402 from Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
Floating Islands are a lovely mix of smooth creme anglaise (Matt says just call it custard), meringue poached in milk topped with strands of crispy caramel. This is a lovely desert. My only drama is I may have cooked my caramel too long. Fab flavour but not happy to form itself into polite strands in the Darwin humidity.
I just tried to upload pictures for this and it wouldn’t work. This leads me to another tech drama story. I am currently using my good husbands computer. This is because all my mac would do is flash a folder with a question mark at me. I have been told this probably means my hard drive is gone. Thankfully it is all backed up (and under warranty) BUT, I need a computer to house all that data so I am playing the waiting game.
So maybe I will post pictures soon. Until then I will sigh in the general direction of the expensive gadgets that I dearly love but that have let me down. In the scheme of things it is not that bad but annoying all the same.
Now go check out the TWD blogroll to see the pretty floating island pictures.
