Food as memory - A few months ago we invited our neighbors over for dinner. They offered to bring dessert. What a treat we had. Mike made a Apple Custard Meringue Pie. I had never heard of this pie and the combination of flavors was truly unique. I vowed to recreate it. After searching the internet, I found a link to a recipe. It took me some time to get my nerve up to tackle this recipe, but I am so glad I did.
