4. Toasted marshmallows, because the word s’more cannot and should not be used if there aren’t real toasted marshmallows involved.

5. Boxed brownies, because they’re about the only thing in a box that doesn’t make me shudder, and they’re easy. Also, they’re foolproof, they’re cheaper than making homemade batter, and I just don’t enjoy making brownies from scratch for some reason.

She periodically offers cooking classes for locals to learn how to make a few of her famous recipes, namely her incredible pavlovas, which she sells at a nearby café. Awhile back, some friends and I signed up for one of her classes because we were dying to know how to make her desserts.
