    I live on a floating island… and ate my share of meringue with “watered custard” as a child! My mother used to make this when we had company over. I’m figuring out how to make a scaled back version to show to all of you. Have a great weekend!

    Traded out the ice cream for vermouth poached peaches. I was not disappointed :-)

    Have a great holiday, all!

    I tried the traditional method. Next time I’m going with Dorie’s oven method.

    No matter whether you call them “floating islands”, “îles flottantes”, “oeufs à la neige” or “Schnee-Eier” – this is a very elegant and dreamy dessert!

    I cheated and made my favorite meringues, but the Crème Anglaise was by the book! Yummy, yum! :)

    Predictably, I just made the Crème Anglaise now, so will be posting tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s take on this recipe – I heard about some fantastic versions, so far this week.

    Ack. Finally got this one done and there was no way I was going to let this one slip by me.

    I’m late again – just returned from sous chef’s surgery this morning. It’s a little goofy, probably due to lack of sleep and white knuckle driving on the way home this morning – love Floating Islands! Somehow I deleted my photos when I was cleaning up camera space :(

    Happy Labor Day weekend!
