The table had something for everyone. I baked my mother's recipe for a lemon merengue pie (which is to die for, so I'll ask her permission to share the recipe with you) and Ina Garten's sour cream coffee cake. I heated up mini filo quiche (store bought), and offered goodies for the kiddies, including squeezable applesauce from Trader Joe's. If you're lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe's in the US and have a toddler then run, do not walk, to your nearest TJ's and buy these little guys - totally awesome snacks for kids. All natural, no added sugar and all that jazz. I've also seen similar versions in Publix, fyi.
I enjoyed baking up a storm for my dear "H", dear girl friends, and their lovely kids.
