I FINALLY got around to making this wonderful dessert that I have seen plastered all over Instagram. I thought what better way to enjoy my all-time favorite meringue cookies in a ‘messy’ sort of way! When all was chilled and ready for devouring, my son says to me, “Oh it’s good…but kind of messy…” I simply smiled and said, “An Eton’s Mess” 😉
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…
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.
