Lemon Meringue Pie

Grandma's lemon meringue pie was my favorite as a kid, and now I have finally added this delicious creation to my cooking repertoire. (This is the second time I'm making this within a month.)

Carrot Lox Mousse

It's time for the second Christmas dinner recipe!

This recipe has been on my to-post list for a while. The first time I made this was for my birthday party last summer, so definitely consider this as a festive food for any season. And it was a huge hit! Because the carrot lox itself takes time to prepare and needs to marinate at least over night, this isn't your last minute life saver. Saying that, I need to point out that even though it takes time, it's not complicated at all - don't be afraid of the preparing.
