Peppermint Meringues

The holidays mean family, friends, love, peace, joy and cookies! Cookies in all shapes, sizes, colors, flavors and origins. These easy peppermint meringues are some of my favorites this time of year and they look and taste like the holidays. While some consider meringues to be a bit finicky, just follow these simple steps and I promise they will be perfection!

Anniversary Rose Macarons (A Simplified Macaron Tutorial)

Anniversary Rose Macarons (A Simplified Macaron Tutorial)

A year ago I launched this blog as a birthday gift to myself. It was something that I had thought of for a long time that had finally come to fruition. I could not predict just what a fulfilling and joyous journey it would turn out to be and how truly grateful I am for each and every reader. It is a privilege to share this passion and my heart with you all. So in the spirit of celebration, I cannot think of a better way to mark this milestone of a blog meant to teach and inspire you to bake than to tackle perhaps the most feared and intimidating bake of all, the French macaron. This recipe is for my intoxicating rose scented macaron with a silky dark chocolate ganache filling.
Meringue Cookies

Meringue Cookies

Meringue cookies are one of my children’s favorites. They are light as air with a satisfying crunch and delicate flavor. They are also perfect for kids with food allergies, like my sweet boy, as they are gluten free, nut free and dairy free.  I’ve made these meringue bones and ghosts for the last few years at Halloween and they are a favorite among family and friends, which is why I wanted to share them with you all.
