In the Kitchen: Colorful and Cool Desserts

Is it getting warm where you are?  It certainly is in the northeast of the U.S. and I am thoroughly enjoying it.  I find myself craving watermelon, ice cream, and ice frappucinos most of the time.  I am a big believer that food, especially dessert, should reflect the weather and the temperature.

I have collected over the years quite a few vintage cookbooks from as early as 1896 to 1980.  They are my pride and joy and each one I find is a cherished addition to my collection.  When it came to deciding posts for this month, I was nervous that my cooking ability would inhibit the beauty that this month is all about.  Therefore, I decided to just share the recipe I was planning on making of Rainbow Meringue Torte  from one of my 1950’s cookbooks, with the hope that you all might try it yourselves…without letting my, perhaps, poor attempt stop you.

So whether you are sitting out on a patio, front porch, or chilling in front of the AC, I hope all your desserts are delicious, cool, and beautiful.

Have a wonderful rest of May and I will see you all in June!
