Meringue Tart (Pinch Pie)

Meringue Tart (Pinch Pie)

This sure-fine hit dessert is so good, it’s been passed on from one generation to the next. I’m sure your guests will go home happy, alive and replete. I got the recipe from my step-great-grandma who got it from a “Joy of Cooking” cookbook. I hope you and your guests love this dessert as much as I do.

Belgian Waffles

Belgian Waffles

I got this recipe from my step-mom, who got it from her mom. I will probably pass it on to my kids, and hopefully they will pass it on to their kids. When you think about favorite desserts, a few things come to mind – fruits, ice cream, and waffles. But when you think about belgian waffles, you think of warm, decadent, sweet waffles, maybe covered with whipped cream and fresh fruit. This recipe is good enough to last generations.


1 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/8 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 cup milk



1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium sized bowl. Make a well in the center.

2. Mix eggs, yogurt, melted butter and milk in another bowl. Pour this mixture into the well in the dry ingredient bowl. Mix everything together. Add more milk if needed.
