TWD Floating Islands


I have never heard of floating islands , but thanks to Shari of Whisk: a food blog I learned. This was a fairly easy recipe to follow, although I'm still not sure what the kitchen towel was for! I made these on Sunday, the creme anglaise was pretty easy to make , I do think it was my first attempt at tempering , it was a success! When I made the actual islands I wasn't sure if I poached them long enough , they seemed OK. They were pretty yummy. I don't think I am in any hurry to make them again. Although it is gluten free so SIL can have this... and.. It did make a really pretty dish! Speaking of dishes I went to HomeGoods Saturday and picked up some really fun dishes!! You'll see them throughout the blogging. Check out Tuesday's with Dorie to see how everyone else did! OH!!! and next week THE COVER CAKE!! I can not wait to make this!!

So , in other news , I think I should mention Rachael Ray in every blog I post Why? cause my hits have increased a TON since my last post... Who knew she was such a touchy subject!

I'm finding I'm picking up a lot more food props since I started blogging too. I'm glad you made this dessert with me this week!
