So I figured I’d continue the coconut theme from my last post. As I mentioned, when I made the coconut cream pie I ended up with extra egg whites and extra coconut. I hate wasting, so I searched around for ideas for other things to make with the egg whites. I have never made meringues… Continue reading Coconut Meringues
