I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE meringue cookies ever since I was a little girl.  I remember moments after school, when my grandmother would often surprise me with a paper bag full of meringue cookies.  She purchased them from a local market not too far away from our home in the Philippines.  Since then, meringue cookies have always been a part of my life.

So here we are…for those who want a little more substance than jello shots.  You can have these mini cupcakes and eat them, too…Cheers!

I’m not much for ready-made dough, but when push comes to shove and I need a quick, easy way to entertain I never go without these wonderful crescent roll dough.  Any brand will do, and I happened to stumble upon these 2 for deals at the grocery store the other day.  So here’s an ode to easy entertaining and a few interchangeable options to boot…

I’ve got a back log of recipes to share since I’ve decided to coordinate our new blog website.  So now it’s time to play catch up!

Last week, after contemplating as to when I was going to finally try some of the new kitchen gadgets I have laying around the house, I opted for the birthday present that I received last June.  My cousin gave me a Mini Pie Maker by Bella (not a plug-in for the brand, but wanted to simply let you know that this particular one worked great.)  Since I live in an area where there are an abundance of farm-fresh produce and fruits around, I decided on blueberries and cherries–two of the top favorite fruits at home.
