~Nutella Meringues and New Finds / Simple & Sweet Fridays~

I saw this recipe on Cecilia's "Atelier Cecilia Rosslee:Cuisine" blog.
 I thought it would be easy
 and they looked so delicious.
 I had to try making them.
 Our daughter, Katie was home last week so we made some.
Katie whipped up the egg whites by hand.
Then she added the nutella.

They looked so pretty lined up.
If you want to impress your dinner guests,
 make these!
I wanted to share this obsession I have,
 about getting things for free.
My neighbor had this chair out in front of his house for the garbage,
 and I just couldn't let it go without putting it in our garden.
I paid nothing for it and who knows how long it will last
 but I got it for free.
I saw this miniature house at a garage sale for $10.00.
Of course, I had to have it.
I knew I could put it somewhere in the garden.
I painted it with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Chalkboard paint
 for the house
 and the trim with Old White.
Stan added a copper roof to it.
We even added solar lights to it.
I hope the fairies like it!

Happy Thursday everyone!

  5. So many great features and I am in LOVE with your new spruced up fairy house!! Your yard is so interesting... so many things to look at. Hope you are getting around okay with that knee. I imagine if there were some of those meringues at the end of the kitchen counter I could hobble anywhere! Macy would love them... must try! Thanks! :)

    Hope your week has been extraordinary!

  11. I love your gardens and yard! Delighted to find your link party and join in today. Thank you for visiting and inviting. Have a sweet weekend. xo

  12. I remember when my middle son was in about 6th grade and friends with a boy whose mom was from England. Her family shipped Nutella over to them here and since it was not sold in stores around this area at the time it was an oddity and delicacy. I should make your recipe for that son of mine and bring back fond memories! :)

  13. oh my those Nutella Meringues, look heavenly! just linked up, thanks so much for hosting!

  14. Love your freebies and LOVE your fairy house!

  19. How nice to have your lovely daughter at home and to cook together! What a find in the wicker chair and darling fairy house! Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week!

  20. How fun to have your daughter home and be able to work on something together. My youngest will have a break in August and I can hardly wait to be together. Aren't adult daughters the best? Thank you for hosting again this week and blessings to you, Patti

  21. Hi Jody and Stan; a lovely surprise to see my Wicker Paint Bling and Memories post featured this week. Thank you.

    I think your doll house painted with ASCP may be a first. Looks great, love the roof, love the setting. Great finds this week indeed.

    Thank you for hosting, I love joining in. Have a great week.


  22. What a great idea for the dolls house, I am sure there will be occupants soon (maybe a bird's nest too!). The meringues look fantastic and I will definitely be making these with my daughter this weekend!

  23. Jody, what would we do without the parties! Thanks for hosting each week. Such inspiration to be found here!

  24. You have such a way with taking the ordinary and making it special. I love what you did with that doll house - would never have thought of putting it in my garden - but it works!!

  25. Thank you for this party - I'm new here and look forward to checking out your site, and a few links! Have a great weekend! Jules

  26. I must try this- my family is addicted to nutella - we spread it on everything, have you tried the cookies yet on pinterest? Delish!!! Anyway, thanks for hosting and sharing this recipe. have a great weekend!

  27. Hi Jody,

    So nice to meet you! Have been taking a little tour around your lovely blog! Your rescued dollhouse 'renovation' is GORGEOUS! Love that duck egg blue with the white trim! Thanks so much for stopping by my place. This blogosphere is so huge right now, don't know if I would have found you!

    Your newest follower,

    Poppy :)

  28. Hi Jody,

    Thank you for following me, now I'm following you back!
    Great you have link parties too:)

    Have a great weekend!!

  29. Just like me,I can't let freebies go either. There is always somewhere to fit them in. I so love your little doll house and how lovely it looks with its new coat of paint. The roof will make it last a little longer I should think. I'd love to see it at night all lit up. I'm sure the fairies will move in for sure. x

  30. so pleased to learn that I'm not the only one to blove to find things for free !!! Love so much the tiny little house !
    thank you so much for hosting.
    xoxo from PARIS


  31. Jody and Stan Thank you so Much for your kindness and support over the past years!! And, as always, for your wonderful link party!! I think I'm going to have to try those Nutella Meringues, too!!
    Hugs and Blessings,

  32. What delightful finds! I'm so jealous- thanks as always for hosting your wonderful parties-
    and for sharing the Nutella meringues- that is a must try recipe!

  33. That looks so good! Must try it. Your features are all so creative.

  34. Thanks so very much for stopping by and following, I've followed you too!
    I love that picture too of my grandmother, I never got to meet her as she died young, my mom was only in her 20's when she passed away so I'm sure that's one of the reasons I was named after her. Again thanks for following and the sweet comment, hope you continue to stop by as I will!
