Red White And Blue Meringue Cookies I love, love, love meringue cookies!  This is a super simple recipe you will see me use often.  In my opinion, meringue cookies don’t taste that great, but they are super easy, once you get the hang of them and are impressive to look at.  These are great for get-togethers or anywhere you want people to thing you really know your stuff in the kitchen.  You can also get super creative with different piping tips and pies.   You can add flavoring and colors

Balloon Party Ice

Balloon Party Ice I saw this super cute idea on Pinterest and had to try it for myself! The Pinterest pin I read said the balloons could be thawed and refrozen. I wouldn’t recommend doing that as the balloons become very fragile after freezing. I also will say to be very careful when handling these frozen balloons. Although this craft is super simple and cute to make, once the balloons are frozen, the ice inside has sharp edges and can pop the balloons. It’s not that big of a deal since they are frozen
