Margarita Meringue Pie

I have so much egg white in my fridge right now. It seems like so many of my recipes call for egg yolks that I’ve just been collecting egg whites. I don’t want to waste them, but I don’t know what to do with them other than making meringue. There are so many delicious things to do with meringue, but after a long train of thought, I determined that the best way to use meringue is in a margarita meringue pie! And I have to admit, I was right.

Hot Cocoa Pie

My parents got me a Tasty calendar for Hanukkah which includes not only the usual holidays, but it also tells me about all those fun food holidays we see on social media! I’ve been using these holidays as inspiration for my 2020 recipe planning, so you’ll see a lot of my recipes this year inspired by these food holidays. As it turns out, January 23 is National Pie Day (not to be confused with Pi day in March). So what better pie to have for a cold, snowy, probably dreary January day than Hot Cocoa pie?!

Bourbon Molasses Chocolate Pecan Pie

Boston is one of the most historical cities in the U.S. and as you walk through the city it is so apparent.  There are so many historical sites.  So many, in fact, that there is a walking trail you can follow through the city to hit some of the biggest historical spots.  There’s the Boston Tea Party, and Paul Revere, and the Boston Massacre. There’s the Bunker Hill Monument, the U.S.S. Constitution, and the Boston Common.  There’s Harvard University and Fenway Park. Every single thing in Boston has quite a history.  But there is a much lesser known story in Boston’s history.  More specifically, in the North End of Boston (also known as Boston’s Little Italy).

We’re right in the midst of the chaos that is the holiday season! It is such a fun time of year, but I always feel like I’m falling behind on everything! Which is why I am here, in December, after you’re probably all burnt out on pumpkin pie, to bring you a brand new pumpkin pie recipe!  Now I know it’s more of a Thanksgiving dessert, but today is a very special occasion for which this recipe would be perfect…not that Pie Thursday wouldn’t be a winning idea!

Campfire Treats

Earlier this summer my husband discovered a spot in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire to unplug, disconnect, and refresh.  With everything we have going on I was hesitant to book a reservation, but there was only one weekend left with openings for the summer so we did it.  YOU GUYS.  I cannot recommend this enough.  We went to a place called Getaway House. They have locations outside of Boston, New York, and D.C. and it is worth every single penny.
