Perfect, Fail-Proof Lemon Meringue Pie

Perfect, Fail-Proof Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie can be a very tricky dessert to make. The 3 different components (pastry, filling and meringue) require perfect execution. This is a super user friendly recipe that yields perfect results! No weeping meringue, no crumbling base and no runny filling. Perfect and delicious – my ultimate recipe for Lemon Meringue Pie 🙂

Banana & Chocolate Cupcakes

Banana & Chocolate Cupcakes

Most Banana Cupcake recipes I’ve tried, taste more like muffins or banana bread, but this recipe is different. Caramelizing the bananas in salted butter intensifies the flavour drastically and it’s just so darn YUMMY!! The smooth chocolate ganache and chocolate cream cheese frosting round off he experience to perfection. I love these cupcakes! 😀

I love this particular recipe so much because I have a thing for toasted pecans. They are one of my top 5 yum high inducing ingredients. Fact. These Apple, Date & Pecan Muffins are packed with apple goodness and carry notes of spice and caramel. Absolutely delicious!

Caramel Apple Pie Blondies

Caramel Apple Pie Blondies

These Salted Caramel & Apple Blondies taste like a slow-roasted Apple Pie (if there ever was such a thing)… Like an Apple Pie Brisket if you will. The Salted Caramel takes these Apples to a whole new level. Ground Cinnamon rounds off the flavour perfectly.
