Another option for Meringues is to leave out the lemon and use vanilla or almond to flavor them. Use a spoon to make an indentation on top like a little nest. Just before serving, fill with whipped cream and sliced strawberries.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
I love this bread. I could eat it every day, it's that tasty. I do add a cup of softened raisins to this. Since I use a buttermilk powder, I make the buttermilk with warm water and soften the raisins in it, and just dump the whole thing in. Last time I tried using 1 c whole wheat flour and 3 c white flour. Still came out fantastic. You simply can't go wrong with this bread!

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers
I make something very similar to this. However, I add raisins to it. A surprisingly tasty addition!
