Yia Yia's Meringue Cookies (Bezethes)
This page is in progress!

In the Star Trek sim , the USS Eagle, we play a variety of characters from different cultures and different worlds. A sim is an online role playing game. Ours is played in a chatroom. We type in text and play characters in a story.

 This is a page for the Captain's family and culture.  It is written as if he posted it. He is half Chinese and half Greek and enjoys cooking, when he's not out saving the galaxy. If you would like information on our Star Trek RPG just email me or check out the rest of this web page with the links below. The recipe comes from his father's side of his family. For those of you don't know what a yia yia is, she is a grandmother.
