Mixed Berry Pavlova

For you frequent readers you will remember that I was on  my way to NJ for our quarterly trip and had suffered temporary loss of my  tastebuds.  If that wasn’t enough I had to contend with preparing dinners for a vegetarian, a gluten intolerant person and the rest of the mob.  It turned out to be less of a struggle than I anticipated and a good learning experience for creating meals for those who don’t tolerate all things wheat.

The pavlova was a requested dessert and turned out to be the perfect ending to a great meal.  It is important to follow the baking instructions to ensure the pavlova are crisp on the outside and creamy and soft on the inside.
