Tasty home baking

My Chocolate and Raspberry Pavlova.
Basically I made 2 meringues and sandwiched them together with freshly whipped double cream, raspberry coulis, fresh raspberries and chocolate sauce. The top was finished using fresh raspberries, and drizzled with raspberry coulis and chocolate sauce. Delicious!

Lemon Meringue Pie.
This was my second attempt at making lemon meringue pie. The first time I made it was straight forward enough, everything was going great until it came out of the oven. I didn't realise that I would have to leave it for quite a few hours before cutting into it. So Dave and I had been waiting for the oven timer to go off so we could start eating it. I left it to cool for about 10 mins and just couldn't wait any longer, I needed to try it. I placed it on the chopping board and cut into it and the lemon filling came oozing out in liquid! Quickly we both got a spoon and we ended up eating the whole thing between us as I was unable to save it. Needless to say we both felt a bit sick afterwards but it was very tasty which led me to have another go. This time I left it overnight and it was perfect!
