Making meringue at high altitude recipes

The Making of a Strawberry Cake

With the mixer on low, add the freeze-dried strawberry powder, powdered sugar, meringue powder, vanilla and salt until combined

Bûche de Noël

The important thing when making this dessert, is the way it is cut and decorated. Many people decorate it with meringue mushrooms, but I had no time to make them (They have to stay the whole night in the oven…)
Coconut Lime Layer Cake

What I did REALLY like was the Swiss Meringue Buttercream because it had just the right amount of sweetness

Jack-O-Lantern Apple Hand Pies: #ProgressiveEats

If you're making this at sea level, see the notes below for the changes you'll need to make. Obviously you don’t want to use the same apples for making applesauce as you do for an apple pie

Cookies, Cupcakes and Christmas

Pour over the bread, making sure all the bread gets thoroughly soaked. After all the excitement and anticipation for Christmas to come, the baking, the shopping, the gift wrapping, and the decorating, it feels like it's over far too quickly, and I always wish it would last just a little longer

small victories

We are settling into a nice routine with the pups and I think we have Neva to thank for making Free Range Yuki a reality

Chocolate Kisses for Dieters

Add granulated sugar to egg whites one tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition and continue beating until it is stiff and glossy (meringue)
