I have been very remiss of late and have not been adding the blog of the week as often as I should. So in an attempt to rectify this situation I decided to start by dropping in on one of my many favorite sites Months of Edible Celebrations. Louise gives so much interesting information and past history about recipes that I always become totally absorbed by what I am reading and time passes all to quickly.
If you are ever stuck for an idea on what to prepare for a particular celebration, then Months of Edible Celebrations will certainly give you great recipe ideas. It seems there is a celebration on almost every day of the year.
While checking out whats new on Months of Edible Celebrations this morning, I came across a recipe the I haven’t made for many years, it used to be a favorite of my friends and family – Baked Alaska. We knew it as Bombe Alaska but the principle is the same. Although a cake base is generally used, when I was at school (seems like a hundred years ago) we were taught to place the ice cream on pineapple rings which also makes for a tasty dessert.
The recipe is courtesy of the Millennium Hotel, Anchorage, and my thanks to Louise for mentioning it. I have to say it brought back some very pleasant memories.
