SMiLes by Meg

Angel Food Cake

I’m running out of weekends baking at the first location of SMiLes by Meg. There are six more weeks of school, and of those, there are only three weekends where I’ll actually be at my apartment. In fact, there are all sorts of “lasts” going on over the course of the next couple of weeks, which is both exciting and a little sad (but mostly exciting).

Lemon Meringue Pie

On Friday, I played a round of golf with my dad (I get out maybe once a year) and we were discussing summer desserts.  I, personally, am of the belief that any real dessert has to include chocolate, and the denser that chocolate, the better.  However, my dad, also a sweets connoisseur, was arguing for the merits of a light, sweet, lemon meringue pie.  I have always shied away from meringue, because some part of me was convinced it was far too hard to make (it’s not), and have never actually truly made a pie from scratch, crust and all.

Pumpkin Bread

I love the Fall.  I say that about every season, but Fall has the best smells.  And after baking this pumpkin bread, I’ve been leaving my apartment just so I can walk back in and smell the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
