Mom's Lemon Meringue Pie

Mom's Lemon Meringue Pie

My Mom’s Lemon Meringue Pie has always been a staple in our family and our holidays, and you will understand why with the first delicious bite!

I have been thinking about my mom a lot lately. As we near the birth of our son in a month or less, I can’t help but think about what advice she might have given or what stories she might have told about me as a baby. But really I think most about how excited she would have been about her “baby having a baby” as she said the night we told my parents we were pregnant.
