How Sublime... (TWD)

Lime Cream meringue tartlets TWD 004

One thing I love about cranking about the blow torch and gently slip-sliding over the surface of meringue is watching as the snow-like fluff bubble and brown. Growing ever so slightly like the heavening of a chest as fresh breath is drawn in, the surface glistens and bubbles in heated turmoil before reeceding down with an attractive coat of caramelised sugars once the flame has moved on.

Guess this may be just about a week late but thanks to Linda of Tender Crumb for picking out this devilish recipe for TWD.

For this time around, my pie crust retaliated with the most unglamorous butter dripping disaster of an outcome and hence I resorted to making a fresh batch of mini tartlets to contain the velvety lime cream. The latter, emerged a winner, taking the 'creamiest' title without a doubt. Tangy, lip-pucking yet maddly sweet at the same time. With a fresh topping flame-kissed italian meringue and a gorgeous reputation to boot, I was stuck to two chattering uncles after that who insisted that I should set up a shop soon. haha.

Moving on, here are more unpublished photos from the Australian trip a while back. Why?

Just because I feel like it.

Watching the sunset whilst observing free spirited bats exiting the dark drawls of their cavern homes.

Exploring the mind blowing number of cascading waterfalls in Tasmania. Back to nature and loving it.

Visiting the misunderstood Devils at a conservation home near the Blue mountains. It looks more like a docile puppy rather than a menancing carnivore here.

DSCN1256

Walking on endless stretches of white sandy beaches, only to catch sight of pod of dolphins playing with surfers on a wave.

Reviewing the dark past of Port Arthur. Convict history lessons.

Ruins of the Captain's quarters.

Stepping into fields of lavender and dreaming up a multitude of images of clean lavatories upon inhalation.
