Cold Dessert Recipe by

What about the name you wonder?

LOL… I wondered about the name as well when I first heard about this dessert! That was years ago when a friend of mine told me that she tasted a delicious cold dessert called Brides’ Bra! At the time, one of my close friends was getting married and I was planning her shower party. And this cold dessert with it’s strange name definitely caught my attention!! I thought, that will be a nice addition to the menu… and it surly is going to draw a few laughs over the name! 

I asked my friend to get me the recipe, and I prepared it a few days before the shower party to make sure that it tastes and looks good.  It did! We enjoyed it a lot, the only change I did was doubling the chocolate syrup portion.

For the shower party, I  got a bit creative and decided to purchase different brands of canned peaches in order to have different sized peaches… get the drift of my thoughts? Sometimes I even add some M&Ms on the top of each peach before serving… they look more original that way!  

Nowadays, whenever there is a bridal shower that I am invited to, I get asked to bring this dish along… sometimes I wonder whether it is me or the Brides’ Bra they want at that party! Smile

Yes, these are quite a few things to juggle but believe me I do manage to find the time to also cook for my family, workout at the gym, and organize all the social events of my family and the club! I learned to love the kitchen from my mom who spends most of her day cooking and then distributing her tasty creations to family and friends. My journey with cooking started with desserts and from there it developed to all kinds of food. Knowing the pleasure my dishes bring to my husband and boys gives me a great sense of enjoyment.

Good morning how are you?

My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

For all this I would ask you one small favor:
Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Jordan? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Jordan in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

Emilio Fernandez Esteban
Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
28902 Getafe (Madrid)

If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

Yours Sincerely

Emilio Fernandez
