Meringues

Meringues are such a delicious, light, and fluffy treat! They’re so easy to make and only need 4 ingredients! There are just two tricky parts about meringues. One is the weather. I know this sounds weird, but it’s true. If it’s too humid out they will come out chewy. But honestly, even the chewy ones taste good! The other tricky part is adding the sugar. You have to add it very slowly to keep them light and airy. Like a cloud!

Lemon Lavender Marshmallows

Did you know marshmallows are super easy to make from scratch? I probably wouldn’t make plain marshmallows from scratch because I’m all about the easiest way possible, and it’s obviously easiest to buy plain ol’ regular marshmallows. For the record, I also hold this opinion about standard pie crusts. But with marshmallows made from scratch, you can make so many different flavors! And I can’t think of a better flavor for spring than Lemon Lavender Marshmallows! These are light and bright and are the perfect flavor to bring spring!

We are in a strange and unprecedented time. Schools are shutting down, everyone is working from home, and we are practicing social distancing to help protect our communities and those around us, especially those most vulnerable. This is a hard time for so many people, but one concern I’ve heard a lot about is parents finding ways to entertain their kids at home for 2 weeks. Baking is a fun activity for the family, and a great way to learn math with a delicious result! If you need a kid-friendly recipe, or ten, I’ve got them here! And if you don’t have kids, these are still quick, easy, delicious recipes that can bring a little bit of joy to your household…there’s even a recipe for your dog!

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pupcakes

THIS POST CONTAINS DOG PHOTOS! I thought that might get your attention. My dog, Gizmo, has a birthday coming up at the end of the month. I love to celebrate his birthday by spoiling him with special birthday treats, most often homemade cupcakes, which I like to refer to as pupcakes! There are so many different dog-friendly cupcakes (though always check with your vet before giving your dog people-foods) and my dogs like them all. This particular recipe is for Peanut Butter Pumpkin Sweet Potato Pupcakes.

Guinness Black Currant Cupcakes

I’ve never been much of a beer drinker. I just don’t care for the bitterness. I’ve also never been to Ireland, though I’m dying to go! I’ve heard from many friends who have visited that Guinness from the source itself tastes so much better than the Guinness they serve in the U.S. Because Guinness is particularly bitter, an acquired taste, it’s apparently also common for college kids and tourists to add black currant juice to the beer to make it more palatable.
