Wednesday's Chow - Coconut Macaroons

Starting in September, I'm going to change things up a bit .... and try to get myself organized ... okay, you can stop laughing now. I'm going to do a certain recipe group each week, 1st week appetizers/soups/salads, 2nd week side dishes, 3rd week entrees and 4th week desserts and sweets. At least it'll seem more organized.

And I'm going to hold a recipe contest during September. You'll get your name in the hat if you send in a recipe for a prize drawing to be held each week. And if I post your recipe, you'll get an additional prize. So, for the first week of Setptember, you'll send in appetizer recipes, the second side dishes, etc. Each week, I'll hold a drawing from those sent in recipes. Then in October, I'll start posting the recipes sent to me. If I use your recipe in the future, you'll get a prize. Sound good? I hope so, because I just now figured it out, lol.

Here's today's recipe:

COCONUT MACAROONS

2 egg whites
2/3 cup granulated sugar
Dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup flaked coconut

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add salt and vanilla; gradually add sugar. Beat until stiff. Fold in coconut. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.

Yeah, P.L., I've pretty much run through my recipes, so I need some new blood, so to speak.

I have to decide how I'll have them sent, posted on the blog or e-mailed to me. Maybe I should take a poll on that.....
