Pavlova for #SundaySupper

Happy Mother's Day!
Did you know that Pavlova is perfect for your Mother's Day dessert?
What is Pavlova?
 It is a dessert baked with meringue and filled with fruit.
It is just the most incredible dish! You start with meringue that you bake in a circle. Then you fill the top with fresh fruit. There are lots of recipes, but this Pavlova recipe has the added deliciousness of a bed of lemon curd that tops the meringue and gives the fruit a place to nest.

If you have never had Pavlova, you will want to try it. It is fancy, decadent, creamy and refreshing. It is a challenge to make. The humidity does not play well with the meringue, which resulted in me having to make the meringue twice. Even the second time the meringue cracked, but it was usable, and although not as perfect as I would have liked, I hate to waste, so I went with it. And it was great!
