I am a lover of all things meringue and chocolate. One of the first desserts I ever made for Kayne and his family happened to be a Double Chocolate Berry Pavlova – little did I know that actually Kayne’s mum is also a meringue-a-holic. Most of the time when we go to her home for dinner she always presents us with some sort of meringue and fruit dessert – and who’s complaining? Not me… or Kayne, or Jasper for that matter. I know that meringues have a rather high content of sugar, however, I am a firm believer that with moderation you can enjoy most things.

In line with moderation I made this dessert using Greek fat free yoghurt and fresh strawberries I get from our local market. However, a dessert in our house more often than not has to include chocolate and so I decided to make a chocolate meringue and use up the egg whites I had left over from the Carbonara I made for today’s lunch.

I'm a mid twenties mummy living in North London, a graduate in English literature and creative writing from the university of Aberyswyth in Wales. I love to bake, cook, read and watch films, and love spending time with my little toddler, Jasper, and our new addition, Mylo. I blog about our family life and my general interests, with the odd guest blog from my partner, Kayne.
