when i say mile high...

i mean MILE HIGH!!


 i've never actually made a lemon meringue pie all by myself before.
 my sister mellon, would do all the baking when we were kids...and i would sit there, cheer her on, and eat the perfect looking dessert when she was done.

now, we're all grown up and she lives clear across the country. its very sad...
especially, because i now have to do all my baking for myself.

some of you may remember this baking episode.

so, about a month ago, i got a started to dream about lemon meringue pie.
when i finally got brave enough....i realized i was missing a few key ingredients, namely, lemon juice.
yeah, thats kind of a necessity.

after several trips to the store with out a shopping list, i finally remembered to pick some up.

a week later, i mustered up the courage, and closed the kitchen to all little fingers.

do you know how hard that is???

well, i did.

then,  i called mellon,
got all the itsy bitsy details, tips and hints for pie baking perfection and kept her on the line...
just in case...


so pretty, isn't it !?!

now, im just wondering if it will taste as good as it looks and if i should share it, or save it all for myself.
