Historic Storm on the Way

Here in New York we are bracing for a “historic Blizzard” to hit our community.  YIKES!!  Not really sure exactly what that means but it doesn’t sound good.  I thought I would share an AMAZING recipe with you to help wait out the storm.  It would be great to try this while you are homebound.  I heard making the meringue is tricky, so these next few days are the perfect time to practice!  I have a friend who makes this Pavlova for all our pot luck luncheons and it is OUT OF THIS WORLD.  The recipe is just too good not to share with my readers.  I am hoping that once you make it, it will help you to forget the disaster that is happening outside your windows!!!!!
