I seriously love this cheese!
I topped a big bowl of roasted veggies with two very large spoonfuls of ricotta cheese, marinara sauce and Parmesan cheese.
It was delish!
After lunch, I headed out to run some errands and by the time I headed home the weather took a turn for the worse and it was poooouring outside!
Rainy Day Coconut Meringues
Rainy days make me want to bake!
Something about baking and the smell of something sweet in the oven makes a home feel oh-so-cozy.
I didn’t have too many quality baking ingredients on hand, but I had the essentials to whip up a batch of coconut meringues.
I whipped up egg whites, cream of tartar and coconut extract until soft peaks formed.
I then added Splenda (Yes, I use Splenda… Gasp!) and continued to whip the mix until the Splenda was fully incorporated.
Within 12 minutes, I had soft, fluffy coconut meringue cookies!
The meringues were a light, sweet and tasty snack!
Dinner is almost ready… Gotta run!
