3 egg whites at room temperature
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup of sugar
3-4 tablespoons of blueberry sauce
6 ounces of fresh blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup of water
To make sauce: Over medium heat, boil water, sugar and blueberries. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes until sauce begins to thicken. Strain and toss solids. Make sure sauce is cool before swirling into meringue.
1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Begin to beat egg whites with whisk attachment of electric mixer (stand mixer works best).
2. Add lemon juice and salt once egg whites are foamy, whisking on medium speed. Keep whisking and add sugar, then whisk on high until glossy, stiff peaks form.
3. Dollop heaping spoonfuls of meringue on prepared baking sheets. Gently flatten tops with back of a spoon. Drizzle 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of blueberry sauce on the meringue and then swirl with a toothpick.
4. Bake for 60-90 minutes, or until the outside of cookie is stiff. Turn off heat and leave meringues in the oven overnight to set.
Makes approximately 24 meringues

About 12 strawberries quartered, or as many as you prefer!
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Mint leaves to taste
Ice and purified water
Place lemon and strawberries in bottom of a large pitcher; add a layer of ice then fill with water. Refrigerate for about an hour to infuse water with fruit.
Add mint leaves to taste. You can refill pitcher with water a couple of times before needing to refresh fruit, if you keep refrigerated.
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
Sprinkles, chocolate syrup… any toppings you love!
Mix cinnamon and sugar together and ready on a plate to dredge taco shells. Cut out 3-4" circles from tortillas. Heat cooking oil and lightly fry each side of tortilla circles, drain quickly, then dredge through sugar mixture. While still warm, fold into taco shape.
Once taco shells are cooked and cooled, fill half way with your favorite ice cream, top with chopped, fresh strawberries and your favorite toppings. Be creative!
