Meringues are one of my favorite desserts, and the steps to making these sweet treats are super simple and easy! These meringues only require 4 ingredients to make, and best of all you might already have these in your kitchen. These are a great dessert to make for a special occasion, or a quick pick me up. Recipe by Chef Eric Crowley. Enjoy! – Lizzy
4 Egg Whites
1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Sugar
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees with the rack in the lower third of the oven.
2. Coat two baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
3. With a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar until the mixture is in soft peaks form.
4. Very gradually beat in 1/2 cup of sugar, adding 1 tablespoon at a time until stiff and glossy. Add in food color as you please.
5. Drop 4 inch mounds of meringue onto prepared baking sheets, or put the meringue in a piping bag, to make the meringues into different shapes. Spread the meringues 4 inches apart.
6. Bake until dry but still white, about 1 1/2 hours, rotating the baking sheets halfway through. Let them cool on sheets.
Good news everyone, the blog is back up and running again! We got our new theme installed, which we are totally obsessed with, and have so many ideas and projects in the works that you will be seeing soon. Recently I (Lizzy) just got back from a trip travelling along the east coast, to do some college tours, and see the east coast, which I’ve never been to before. When I was in New York, I stumbled upon the cutest Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village, named Olio E Piú. Heres a few photos I took at the restaurant, which by the way has the best pizza I’ve ever eaten, and I’m sure their other options are just as amazing!
This time of year its especially hard to know what kind of shoe to wear. Even though it’s the middle of October and I feel like by now I should be walking out the door with a cute pair of booties on, its still sooo hot outside. I’ve been mostly wearing my sandals lately, and sneakers a little here and there, but here’s a nice inbetween shoe that combines a little of fall and summer.

I can’t believe that this day last weekend it was raining here in LA, and it was only 65 degrees. Today it was over 100, but even though its crazy hot, it really has begun to feel like fall. Fall is one of my favorite times of year, even though I seem to easy forget that, and it always seems to go by so fast and never feels long enough. Here are some photos to make this fall feel a little bit longer.
On Sunday yesterday Emily and I (Lizzy) spent the day walking around 3rd street looking going in and out of stores and checking out all of the cool walls of course! One of our favorite places we stopped by was Sockerbit, a swedish candy store with a minimal clean layout and scandinavian feel. The store was filled with colorful candy and white bright white walls. We left the store with our custom made bags filled with yummy candy!

At the beginning of the week Viv and I (Lizzy) visited Plant Food and Wine a vegan restaurant on Abbot Kinney in Venice. The atmosphere was incredible filled with white walls, marble tables, and succulents everywhere with a very sleek and minimal vibe. Everything tasted so fresh and healthy too! Viv and I shared the avocado toast, and I had the market greens salad with cherry tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, and green beans with a mustard seed dressing. Here are some out of the many shots we took!
