Foodie Friday: Lemon Balm-Blackberry Meringue

Last weekend I had enough people over to cook some recipes that make more than Keltin and I should each normally. For dinner I made Coq Au Vin Blanc (from this post) and it turned out fantastic but for dessert I wanted something lighter. Thus I decided to try my hand at a meringue based
