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!

And I have to admit, I was right.

Just because I’m out of town this week doesn’t mean I’m going to leave you hanging on a recipe!  But I am going to keep this post short and sweet.  Summer will be here before we know it and I can’t think of a better flavor combination than raspberry and rosé! Rosé seems to be trendier this summer than it has before, and rightly so.  Rosé is the perfect summer drink. Light, cool, refreshing, and most importantly, delicious!  And adding raspberries is really just a good idea. Continue Reading

Shipyard Pumpkinhead Iced Cookies

You wouldn’t know it from this heat, but fall is almost here! Fall is my favorite time of year.  And to be honest, (unpopular opinion coming…) I’m not a fan of the pumpkin stuff.  I don’t drink the PSLs, I don’t eat pumpkin pie, I just really don’t care for pumpkin anything.  But Shipyard Pumpkinhead is a super popular fall beer here in Boston.  And it’s served in a glass with a cinnamon sugar rim.
