Whether you celebrate Passover, Easter or no holidays at all, these pastel meringues will work. They’re flourless, pastel colored, and super sweet. Josh and I spent the weekend at his family’s home and his sister and I spent Sunday in the kitchen. I love that Josh has two very smart & sweet sisters to perfectly balance out my boy-filled household (my mom & I were always outnumbered by my dad & brothers). I’ve always wanted sisters, so much so that I chased after my poor brothers with my tutus and lipsticks trying to get them to dress up (it didn’t work). Now I get to paint nails, watch Revenge, and make pastel colored meringues for the holidays, and Josh can talk sports and “guy stuff” with my brothers all he wants…It’s the best of both worlds.
