Hi! I'm Lindsay and welcome to my page! I was born and raised in New Jersey, which is where I currently reside with my husband Justin, and our two dogs, Leo and Penelope.

Growing up food was always a big part of my life. I spent most of my childhood in the kitchen baking all sorts of sweet treats, thinking about my next meal, and to this day I will always save room for dessert!

I graduated from the French Culinary Institute in 2005 with a degree in Pastry Arts, and have worked in some of New York City's most prestigious restaurants.

I started this blog to share all of the delicious recipes that I have created over the years.

Thanks for stopping by!

Raspberry and Lemon Pavlova

Raspberry and Lemon Pavlova


Sweet, crunchy meringue topped with creamy lemon curd and fresh raspberries. The perfect Valentines Day dessert for anyone looking for a lighter, chocolate free option.  Leftover lemon curd will hold for a week in the refrigerator. It's so good, it probably won't last that long!

Coconut Meringues

120 g egg whites

100 g granulated sugar

100 g powdered sugar

50 g unsweetened shredded coconut

Whip egg whites in a mixer, when frothy, slowly add the granulated sugar. Whip until medium-firm peaks.

Fold in the powdered sugar and coconut until combined, being careful not to deflate the meringue.

Drop in large spoonfuls onto a parchment lined sheet pan, sprinkle with extra coconut if desired.

Bake at 200 degrees for 2-3 hours or until fully dry. Store meringues in an air tight container at room temperature until ready to use. 


Lemon Curd

300 g sugar

200 g lemon juice

5 eggs

300 g butter

Whisk all ingredients together in a metal bowl and place over a double boiler.

Cook curd until it thickens and is the consistency of hollandaise sauce.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer and cool over ice until ready to use.
