About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Coconut Macaroons

I love Coconut Macaroons and I found a really easy recipe that is very good. You can tell I'm in the mood to bake this morning with all these candy/cookie recipes!

2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cold water
1 tablespoon corn syrup
14 ounce bag of sweetened shredded coconut
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small saucepan, bring sugar, cold water, and corn syrup to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. In a medium bowl, combine the syrup with the coconut and let cool. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg whites and vanilla until foamy and thick. Stir into the coconut mixture. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto each of the 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Bake until golden, switching pans halfway through, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely on racks.
