The group was not composed of bloggers but folks whose lives entwine with ours, engineers, scientists, educators, the camera staying quiet for the festivities. Not every event in my life is posted for the world, parts of me always remaining intensely guarded and I cherish the lives of good friends and colleages who wish to enjoy these gatherings in the most private of settings.
But I have to share the dessert for this Father's Day in case any of you are thinking "what to make today that's special and unique, just like my Dad". With it was a delicious blueberry tart that one of the guests brought and the always popular Creme Brule baked in a casserole pan instead of small ramekins (yes, you may use the large spoon). But this dessert was truly the star of the show.
Pavlovas are quite fragile and have a habit of deflating and forming cracks when you open the oven to a colder temperature. Simply have some extra whipped cream to cover any crevasses. It will be a spectacular dessert either way.
May all of you that are Father's, mentors and friends, enjoy this day. Know also, that as good men, you make a difference in someones life each and every day, even if you don't think it's noticed.
