Tarte à la Rhubarbe meringuée, Rhubarb Meringue Pie

Hooray, another wish ! As you may know, it is a tradition in my family to make a wish each time we do something for the very first time ! And I had never cooked rhubarb before today. I have always been impressed and intimidated by their very long stalks: for me, that meant that they were probably hard to peel, cut and cook. My, how wrong was I ! It can’t be easier ! And I also found out about their benefic effects : rich in fibers, they are good to your stomach and they are also a great source of vitamin K (prevention of... [Lire la suite]

Des Meringues so "Roma Baby" pour utiliser vos fonds de Limoncello ! "Frenchtalian" Meringues to use your Limoncello leftovers !

Ah, sweet things have such a strong healing power ! Stronger than chocolate, I can tell you ! My only problem was the sudden irruption in my kitchen of my little froggies, attracted by the decadent smell. And you... [Lire la suite]

Meringues Pavlova aux Fruits Rouges, Pavlovas with mixed red berries

At last, the end of my fruity menu : The Pavlova meringues with mixed berries have decided to come along for the closure ceremony. Seem easy when you look at them, but quite tricky to make, actually : they can become chewy if you let them rest in your kitchen, because they love, love to absorb humidity…This is what happened to me, unfortunately. Now, I can tell you that, next time, I will not forget to leave them in the switched off oven until ready to be served.  Beside, do not expect a perfectly crunchy meringue both... [Lire la suite]
