  8. I just did meringues last week, and its funny, I thought I’d made way too many and how on earth would I get through them all? And what do you know, now i crave meringues and have none to satisfy my craving. :-/

    I wouldn’t have thought of including coffee. Sounds like it would be a nice touch. Looks great!
