Saturday = baking day

Baking. It's not one of the things I'm particularly talented at, but since I'm all for bettering oneself, I had a light bulb moment the other day. Dave decided that every Saturday morning, he would go help out his dad with his super cool coin op. and electronic business and leave little ole helpless me to fend for myself at the homestead. And then it struck me. This idea was like a bolt of lightening sent straight from sugar land. But not the band. It's that a country band? Anyone? 
I decided that I would turn my Saturday mornings into baking day! Grand idea, no? Today was the first day on my journey through ooey gooey sweet (sometimes chocolaty) treats. My baking/cooking mentor Becky was thankfully by my side every step of the way. We made the down right cutest cut out cookies known to man. Alright, so they look a little plain in this picture, but I did the best I could, ok? And I learned about meringue powder. Fascinating stuff. I liked it so much, I'm now going to use it in all of my baking and cooking for that matter. Meringue powder stir fry, meringue powder spaghetti sauce. The possibilities are endless. Ok, so that's a lie. I actually don't have any idea what else I can use it in besides royal icing. Whatever.
