CELEBRATING WITH MEMORIES

I am posting my Love Is...today It is special because I just had a birthday (December 3rd) and I love to eat cake with my "Sweets". I thought this little comic by Kim Casali is sweet as can be!
Please come join us .Marydon and Sherry
I started to write this post and than I had another idea! I was searching the web for recipes, Baked Alaska or Alaska Bombe. I guess I had been thinking of my brother-in-law, who is staying with us temporarily and heading to the most remote corner of Alaska near the Russian border. It made me start thinking of my mom and the wonderful dessert she use to concoct, Baked Alaska! I remember she used neopolitan ice cream and made the most fabulous dessert. As a kid it was the most amazing thing ever. For a grown up version you can make Alaska Bombe and pour some heated brandy over it all and light it like a firey celebration. Go to  Allrecipes for some tasty recipes. With the Christmas season quickly approaching I wanted to share this special memory with you. I am showing you another internet image so you can see this lovely dessert. Maybe you will concoct one for the Christmas dinner dessert.

Well that looks delicious..I have never made one, but had had them and they are as good as they look aren't they? Do they even make neopolitan ice cream anymore, used to be one of my favorites!
Have a great day!

The only time I attempted, yup!, to make one of these, you'd NEVER have recognized it from the picture. Looks good to me, when I come over you can bake it & we'll celebrate birthdays then. I know you had a lovely bday, sweetie. A new home, a happy phamily, what more can one ask for.

Have a wonderful Christmas week ~
Huggers, Marydon

If this is as good as it looks, it would be wonderful. I have not had baked Alaska.

Happy Belated Birthday! Thanks for stopping by! My mom used to make baked Alaska too. I always thought it was magic how she got it to work out.
