A Mid-Pie Baking Rant.

FYI. If meringue were a person we would not be friends. It's way to picky about the type of bowl it will sit in and heaven forbid a tiny drop of yolk sneaks in. If you do not play by its rules forget about getting it to peak. Tell me who invented meringue? I would like to have their name. It's not even that good.

I have to go buy more eggs. Perhaps, I'll buy whip cream just to be spiteful.

Meringue was invented in 1720 in the Swiss town of Meiringen by an Italian chef named Gasparini. He served it to royalty and it was a favorite of Marie Antoinette. You have to conquer it because Mamaw's chocolate pies won't be the same without it.

Thanks mom or should I say google? I went to the store at 11:30. People shouldn't make meringue that late. Does that make me a serious cook?

Meringue is gross. Team Whipped Cream!

And of course your mom knows all the details of it. Why doesn't she have a television show? She's neat. : )

What? Google? Yes, it makes you a serious cook and you are rapidly becoming a prisoner of your own excellence. Make a run for it while there's still time!

And thank you, Kelley for your nice comments.

I assume you mean the nice comments about you, because I don't have anything nice to say about meringue.
:p
