I recently joined my first baking club — Sweet Melissa Sundays. I’ve wanted to join for a while, but Steven felt that it may be too stressful to make sure I do my “homework” for Sweet Melissa Sundays. So I never joined, and plus…they weren’t accepting new members.
However, last weekend I decided that I’d just go ahead and buy the cookbook and bake along with them. As I was browsing their page, I found that they were accepting new members! I immediately emailed and asked if I can become one of them. The next morning, I received an email from Karen of Karen’s Cookies Cakes & More telling me that I was accepted! Yay!!!
So…my first homework assignment…the Pavlova Peach Melba. Now, the Sweet Melissa Baking Book is not a cookbook that has a picture of EVERY recipe. I saw the name of this week’s recipe and thought…”Huh??”
After reading the recipe, and Googling it, I understood what it is I will be conquering this week. 🙂
It’s a little difficult to find good quality, fresh, ripe peaches this time of the year, so I went the frozen route. I also went the frozen route for the raspberries.

Although hard to eat, I still received many compliments for it. Even Steven’s papa ate the whole thing!!…and he doesn’t even like non-Asian foods.
