No TWD...again...damn humidity

Well...I really wanted to make this week's Coconut Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise....minus the pineapple. But I was reading on the P&Q that humidity would be an issue. I knew this...I have made meringues in the middle of summer and had them come out chewy and not so meringue-y. So I didn't want to take the risk, even though I secretly like chewy meringues! But with already wanted to sub out the pineapple and the crazy humidex here in GA I just plain bailed.

I apologize to Andrea, of Andrea in the Kitchen, for not participating...please don't hate me! I promise to make this by the end of the year when the weather isn't so sticky! And be sure to stop by Tuesdays with Dorie and take a peak at all the other creations.

Oh....Check out our new logo....pretty awesome eh?

Thanks to Jaime of Good Eats n’ Sweet Treats for passing our contest info on to her friend Lisa of Surviving Oz for creating it. It Rocks!

More treats to follow.....

Take Care,
Love Big, Bake Often

Sorry about the humidity, it was a long time to have the oven on thats why I used puff pastry!

You were smart to pass on this, the last time I made meringues when it was humid they turned into marshmallow soup.

We thought the roasted pineapple was the best part -- but, if you (or your family) don't like pineapple to start with, I doubt that roasting will change your mind.

The weather has finally turned cool again here, hope you're getting some of that where you are!
