James Peterson, author of Kitchen Simple (Ten Speed Press, 2011), reminds home cooks that good food isn’t necessarily complicated. In his most recent book, Peterson offers a diverse collection of more than 200 satisfying, quick and easy recipes. The following excerpt, from "Desserts," is for a Simple Pavlova recipe.

This is essentially a cake made with a special meringue that contains corn starch. It is traditionally topped with whipped cream and strawberries. Because this cake is very sweet, you may want to substitute a pint of sour cream or crème fraîche for the traditional whipped cream.

Simple Pavlova Recipe

• 5 egg whites
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• Pinch of cream of tartar (optional)
• 1 1/4 cups sugar
• 5 teaspoons cornstarch
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 cups heavy cream
• 1 pint strawberries, stemmed and quartered
• Confectioners’ sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan.

2. Combine the egg whites and salt in a large bowl. Add the cream of tartar (if you are not using a copper bowl). Beat until the egg whites form medium peaks—the meringue sags slightly when you hold out the whisk straight out. Add the sugar and beat until very stiff.
