Pavlova for Easter with Lemon Curd and Fresh Fruits

pavlova with lemon curd

This year for Easter I decided to prepare something dreamy and airy. What better option than to go with pavlova? I went for a pavlova with lemon curd and fresh fruits. Never heard of pavlova? According to my research this dish is seen as the national dish of either Australia or New Zealand, both countries are still fighting about that. In the 1920’s the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova visited both countries and this dish was invented in her honor. It contains a meringue base, which usually has the shape of a nest and is filled with whipped cream and fresh fruits.

Simple Sour Cream Cookies for Easter

I promised I would introduce more cookie recipes during my second year of blogging. For that reason I decided to make some simple sour cream cookies for Easter. I actually got this recipe when I spent one year in Canada. It is a very old-fashioned recipe and not too sweet. These cookies are very soft, cute and pretty. Obviously you don’t have to make Easter bunnies and the like, I remember just using a glass in order to cut out the cookies in Canada.
