The start of bigger things to come at Delish!Posted: August 26, 2011
This summer has flown by! Back to school specials will soon be here. Of course the weather outside is still stifling (we never thought we’d be a part of such an intense record!). In the spirit of enjoying light bites we got to work this week experimenting with our Meringue Cookies. However, we did have a major change in the way we did things.
When we started out talking about flavors we realized we had a lot of great ingredients to work with. Lisa just brought us back a delicious cassis syrup from her summer vacation in Canada, Chelsea picked up a bottle of orange blossom to play with, and Jessica has been craving mint meringues all summer. Generally when we do meringues we pick one flavor to do. We’ve been limited in the past by the size of our equipment but things are starting to change.
Usually this is the mixer that we use to whisk our eggs for our meringues…
This is one of our original mixer sizes. Now, once upon a time, we made most of our batches of cupcakes out of this mixer but we’ve long outgrown using this size for that! We have been using it for meringues but it can only hold so many egg whites. Our other mixer option is our good old reliable hobart.
He’s pretty fantastic but lately he hasn’t been enough to get the job done. Luckily we’ve been able to invest in our workspace this summer. For months we have been dreaming about our new mixer. We’ve looked at different models the way most women look at shoes! When it finally arrived we put it straight to work. We’ve got so many plans for this fall. We are so excited to for you to taste what will come out of this big guy!
We have absolutely loved breaking in our new mixer. This week we went a bit crazy but the results have been very tasty. We did our biggest batch of meringue yet and were able to do 4 flavors out of one batch! This week we invite you to try our Meringues in a variety of flavors including Cassis, Orange Blossom, Mint, and Cookies and Cream. They are delicious and completely addictive…and only the beginning of what we are able to start doing with our Big Mixer!
