Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce

We've been really busy dealing with Ivan, so I haven't been able to cook much in January. I missed cooking. This morning, I made Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce for breakfast. I really enjoyed getting back in the kitchen and making it. Hehe. I got the recipe off Tastespotting - you can click here for the recipe.

It was delish! Here's a pic of my version:

Coconut Macaroons to ring in 2009

I decided to make Coconut Macaroons to ring in the new year. It's my first time making macaroons. I had a bunch of shredded coconut left over from Jerry's birthday, so I was looking for a recipe to use the coconut.

We were invited to a dinner with the Wongs, so I brought some for dessert (in addition to the chocolate mousse pie Jerry bought).

The ingredients were all white (flour, sugar, vanilla, coconut, salt, and egg whites)

The egg whites beaten:

Sugar combined with the beaten egg whites:

The coconuts added to the mixture:
