Vanilla Pavlova with Cherry Vanilla Sauce ◍^◍

It's been a while since last time I posted.
I have been super busy making,testing,shooting my recipes....for my recipe book.
Yeah, MY recipe book!!
I am thrilled to announce that my first recipe book will be released in Japan next month!!
(Butterflies in my stomach!!)
I am still working on for the final editing process, but can't wait to see how my pics and recipes come out in one book;)

Today I am going to share the recipe using one of my favorite summertime fruit, cherries!
 It's " Vanilla Pavlova with Cherry Vanilla Sauce".
A delectable combination of pavlova and fruity,sweet cherry flavor with a touch of vanilla sauce makes everyone smile:)

Make sure to prepare pavlova ahead of time. Baking it with low temperature for 1 hour and leave it in
the oven until completely cool (at least 2hours to overnight).
This makes a crunchy outside shell and marshmallowy inside perfect pavlova.

Enjoy this summer dessert you can enjoy only during the summer time!

Happy Baking!

chamomile shortbread slice recipe**

My chamomile plants in the garden are finally blooming which I've been waiting for a long time.
I tried so many different chamomile seeds and plants but
 all ended up just growing the greens with no flowers.
This time I bought a different kind of chamomile seeds.
I forgot the name of this chamomile, but it's a little bit bigger than the german chamomile and
looks like it worked well with my garden's soil.
I am enjoying seeing and smelling these lovely aromatic yellow/white flowers everyday.

Today I'll share the recipe inspired by the lovely chamomile flowers, 
the shortbread with chamomile,vanilla and jam.
Buttery shortbread with sweet aroma of chamomile and a fruity jam are perfect combination.
They will absolutely melt in your mouth;)

This time I used my favorite jam, apricot jam. But you can use any kind of jam you like.
Hope you'll enjoy my recipe!

Happy baking ♡

No-bake cheesecake recipe.

Cheesecake is one of my all-time favorite dessert.
I like both baked and no-bake cheesecake.
But I make no-bake cheesecake more often especially during the summertime.
I don't need to turn on the oven to make it but yet still have
creamy, smooth and delectable bold cheesecake flavor.

This time I used the bear shaped graham crackers, because I wanted to decorate with them.
But you can use any kind of graham crackers for the crust.

Hope you'll like my recipe.

Lemon / Lime curd recipe ♪♪

Lemon curd.
Lovely bright yellow color, rich, creamy and lemony delicious spread.
It's perfect with pancakes, scones,cookies and you can also use it as a dessert filling,too.

Making your own lemon curd is very simple and easy.
You'll need only four ingredients and won't take much time.
It's worth making your own.
Fresh and much tastier than a store-purchased;)

Here's my recipe;

This time I used the curd as a filling of meringue kisses.
The sweetness of the meringue cookies and the sourness of the lemon curd was just perfect!
Hope you'll find your perfect combination with this lemon(or lime) curd,too.

Yogurt mousse with cherry sauce with recipe♡

Yay! Cherry season has finally arrived.
I'm not sure how much I have been eating cherries last few days.
I (+ my kids) eat them like crazy;) 
♡ cherries!! 

I don't really like to "bake" with them because they are already fantastic on their own.
They are sweet, fresh,juicy and can be just a great snack or dessert as is.
But I have been enjoying making sauces and jams with fruits recently and I decided to make with
cherries for the first time.
 Well, it turned out just wonderful!
 Fruity, rich and bold intense cherry flavor stands out and it was so delicious!
I thought this sweet cherry sauce would be a perfect match with slightly sour yogurt mousse 
and tried that last week.

And yes, successful. 
Sweet cherries and the sourness of the yogurt and lemon was a perfect match!
All of my family enjoyed it so much,too:)
I am sure this would be a one of the best summer dessert.

Hope you'll enjoy my recipe,too!
Just to make sure to strain the plain yogurt the day before you want to make this mousse.
This process makes this mousse creamy, rich and delicious!
