Pavlova with Lemon Curd and Mixed Berries

I just bought a big jar of lemon curd and I keep spreading in on my toast, which I know isn’t really that healthy since there’s enough sugar in there to put an elephant into a diabetic coma, but I don’t really care.  I love lemon curd.  A lot.  I also love meringue and indulging every once in a while in something completely decadent and ridiculously sweet.  Lemon curd and heavy cream atop a pillow of meringue, topped with your favorite fresh berries; get the recipe here and show me how the piggies eat!

A galette is a round, flat cake with fruit on top.  Galette, the word itself is derived from galet, a pebble weather-worn to the shape ideal for skipping.  Nectarines are my favorite fruit and I love anything fruit, crust, sugar and baked involving so this is going to be an all-time favorite of mine, I can tell already!  Click here for the full recipe.

As soon as I pulled this recipe up on my computer, my sweetie exclaimed “I want a cookie!  I haven’t had a cookie in forever!”  And this is a rather correct statement for me as well, rather correct in that I cannot remember the last time I had a cookie and just how sad is that?  Click here and make cookies with us tonight!

Just in Time for Independence Day :: Lemon Meringue Pie

Photo courtesy of Designsponge.com

I am obsessed with all things lemon and lemon meringue pie is one of my all-time favorites second only to strawberry-rhubarb pie, and it’s a close second!  I highly recommend buckling down and making your own because no store bought pie is ever going to taste as good as the pie with all your love in every bite.  Though let it be known I personally will not judge you should you decide to buy your crust…  I am an admitted pie crust purchaser, judge me if you will!  Click here to get the Melina Hammer’s full recipe and start whipping those sugary egg whites into peaks!
