Sorry folks, I decided not to make this week's recipe for "Tuesdays with Dorie," the Floating Islands.
You see, my husband and I share a dislike of meringue. We both agree that it is way too sweet, doesn't taste like much of anything other than sugar, and is basically just boring. I must admit, the processes of making the meringue and the sauce and the caramel all sounded quite fascinating...but there was no-one around to eat the results! If I ever find a friend or family member who's a meringue fan, I may try this. And I really hope we have some other chance to make the creme anglaise sauce...
I'll be posting a rewind of the Tall and Creamy Cheesecake very soon, and can't wait to get started on next week's White-out Cake! (Although, given our dislike of meringue, I may make a different frosting. I'm thinking whipped cream flavored with coffee and Kahlua, stabilized with white chocolate and gelatin. It'll be a brown-out cake instead!)
Meanwhile, please check out all the other TWD blogs for some fabulous Floating Islands.
