Striped Meringue Kisses | Domestic B(i)atch

8.8.17

I am not great when it comes to leftovers. If we haven’t consumed all of dinner, we both really have the best intentions of eating it for lunch that week, or on another night.  Usually though, it just hangs out in one of my tupperware containers until we do a deep clean of the fridge and have to smell what it is to remember what it was. We’re working on getting better at it. However, this doesn’t apply to my baking.  I often have extra of at least one component. It sits there staring at me.  But unlike home cooked dinner, I am always determined to make something out of leftover frosting, or curd, or in this case, extra meringues from the cake I made.  After choosing the prettiest ones for the top of the cake I had the rest just hard chilling with no purpose. The meringue can be eaten on its own, sure, but HOW BORING. Gotta amp it up.  Dip it on some chocolate and then into some crunchiness for an exciting cookie I can get on board with.

Welcome back from the Thanksgiving weekend! I’ve already got some holiday ideas to create and in progress, but for now, enjoy part two of my trip to LA.

 

I wouldn’t travel across the country for just anyone.  The groom in this bright and beautiful wedding has been a close friends of mine all the way from the depths of early high school. When we were all awkward and full of baby fat and feelings. I think there’s something really special about keeping in touch closely with friends for over a decade. Granted, social media has made this a lot easier, but it’s actually investing in each other’s lives that takes it a step beyond ‘liking’ the pictures of dinner posted every other day.

Oh October!!!! Here you are! And while everyone posts on social media that famous October quote, I’ll just flat out say autumn continues to be the best.  Sweaters and scarves, colored knee socks and dresses with pattered tights. Cozy evenings with bourbon or pumpkin ale.   An impending hurricane in NYC has left the city wet, blustery and cold.  Not that it stopped us from taking AWESOME rockstar photos for this post.

I think one of the best things to come out of creating this blog is how incredibly supportive and encouraging my friends have been about it.  At this point that’s probably all that’s reading this, my fantastic friends, and their feedback and excitement has added to my own. So on this post I was able to do my first collaboration and bake WITH a friend to make something for her husband to celebrate their 4 year wedding anniversary, his grandma’s banana cream pie.
