Welcome

 

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!

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.
