I have been listening to Christmas music for months. My kids knew I was serious when I put CDs on my mp3 player to use when running.
Saturday, I decided to do some holiday baking. I was heading to a party, needed to take something with me and wasn’t sure what. I decided to try two new recipes – Cinnamon Roasted Nuts and Mint Meringues.
I gathered my ingredients together. Those of you who make meringues are probably laughing right now. I am not a big egg person so bought egg whites in a container. My mother, now after a lengthy discussion, says I should have used regular egg whites – hoping and praying I got them separated cleanly – or egg white powder. I guess what I don’t know sometimes does matter.
I followed the recipe and had a horrible time getting the egg whites stiff, hence the flat mint meringues.
