Fearing Meringue And Other Silly Things

Do you know that for years I avoided any recipe that had a meringue component? I don’t know why I was so afraid of something as simple as beating egg whites.

It was our daughter, Michelle that finally got me over this irrational fear.

Silly huh? I think it was the idea of trashing a bunch of ingredients if said recipe failed, that stopped me from even trying.

My keto coconut macaroons will make even the meringue challenged feel accomplished.

Facing Our Fears

Reflecting on my past fear of all things meringue related, makes me think of how many things I have not attempted because I was afraid to fail?

The truth is mistakes are inevitable. We can’t really accomplish anything meaningful if the fear of failure keeps us from trying.

The willingness to fall flat on our face is part of the growing process that leads to the reward of success. However, it only comes when we stay the course, no matter how challenging it is.

Eventually what we feared can be mastered as we continue to put forth our maximum effort.

How are you facing your fears? I know this is a recipe for Keto Coconut Macaroons, but can you agree that life’s lessons are wrapped up in our every day experiences and that it’s up to us to see that we are surrounded with opportunities to grow.

Tips For Perfect Meringue

Ok, now that I shared a little life wisdom, let’s get back to egg whites If I had one piece of advice when trying to make a recipe that requires meringue, it would be to make sure no egg yolk gets mixed in with the egg whites.

The protein in the yolks will prevent the meringue to rise properly. So as long as you’ve learned to separate your eggs you will win half the battle.

Besides making sure that no egg yolks make it into your egg whites, adding a little cream of tarter to your egg whites will further stabilize your meringue.

After, separating thousands of eggs in the course of my life, I think it’s safe to say I had the skills to tackle beating egg whites. Big thank you to my Michelle for pushing me to conquer the elusive meringue.
