Getting Back to Blog of the Week

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.

  1. Good morning, Wanda. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. It’s always so nice to “see” you. I’m also glad because for some reason, I seem to have misplaced your wonderful link. No more for that, I’m adding your link to my sidebar “as we speak.”

    I may not be able to get by as often as I would like but at least now, I’ll know where to click when I can.

    Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for the link. I’m delighted you enjoyed the post. Louise
