While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Pucker up, sweet stuff - August 15 is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day!
Do you meringue? Whether or not fluffy, toasted egg whites are for you, meringue sure makes for a heavenly topping on this decadent pie.
If you've ever tangled with making a lemon meringue pie, you know that the lemon curd and cornstarch filling can be a fickle feat. The best advice I ever received was from my grandmother: "Keep it simple, honey." She swears by the recipe on the side of the cornstarch box, and if you're ever unsure about the consistency, cook it just a minute longer.
Don't worry, we won't tell if you sweep the meringue to the side and dig out all that rich lemon filling.
