A few years ago I started making these cute little Baiser Geister or Meringue Ghosts for Halloween. The kids love them… and since meringues are favorites of mine, I love them too.

My mother and my Oma came from different corners of Germany, so naturally, they each make different styles of cucumber salad. Oma passed along this Creamy German Cucumber Salad recipe.
