happy australia day!

It was Australia Day yesterday and we celebrated at home with friends, a bbq and yummy pavlovas! They were fun to make and decorate, although I forgot the most essential ingredient.....passionfruit. I thought something was missing, they just weren't the same without passionfruit and now we have half a dozen sitting in our fruitbowl. I think I will have to make another batch today!

I've also been tagged by Tiff, to mention 5 things that I haven't mentioned before on this little blog! I find it difficult to say too much about myself and my family, which is why I prefer taking and posting up pictures. So for a change I am going to let you know a little bit more about us.........
1. I'm 34, been married for 7 years, work part-time and have two little ones that keep me busy!
2. I was born in West Germany, to Korean parents and have been living in Australia since I was 2.
3. I can't cook (much prefer cleaning). I can't resist a good recipe book but always end up baking up something from the dessert section.
4. I studied economics and didn't like it, which is why it took me 6 years to finish a 3 year degree!
5. I love being an at home mum.
I'd like to tag Ali and Kirsten, if you haven't been tagged already!

nothing wrong with just making desserts. nothing wrong at all.

i'm not a big meringue/pavlova fan, but your photos make them look pretty enough to eat.

Those are such a nice looking dessert. Is that a type of merengue cookie?
