I am very happy to report that the little girl who, in first grade, wrapped herself around my legs every morning from August to December in the school cafeteria, and pleaded with me not to leave her is now not such a little girl and a graduate of sleep away camp. I'm so proud that she's brave enough to go off to camp with one friend and about one hundred relative strangers, and then come back to me dirty but happy and drama free. She's even talking about camp next year already!
So without further ado friends I will introduce you to the yummiest dessert I could find on the world wide web- some call it gooey cake, some call it crack pie, and I've even heard Neiman Marcus brownies (fancy), but I'm going with the chess bar title because it sounds the most appetizing.
I also have been waxing poetic about meringue cookies. I had three egg whites left over from making key lime pie, and while I could have saved them for an egg white omelet I decided to whip them up with 1/3 cup of sugar and a drop of orange extract. Amazing. AH MAZ ING. How, HOOWWW, can yucky clear sticky liquid whip up into crispy on the outside and sweet, chewy on the inside deliciousness?? It truly is the incredible edible egg.
