After a few days in Cleveland, Ohio, attending a rained out Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago White Sox game and then a week at Myrtle Beach soaking up the sun and revisiting old haunts from beach week trips during college summers, I was ready to make these airy, but chewy chocolate almond meringues chosen by Mike of UglyDudeFood. The humidity is terrible here in Georgia, definitely not conducive for making meringues, but turning the AC temperature down to 70° F helped somewhat. My meringues are light-colored due to the fact that I only had a really, really scant 1/4 cup of cocoa, but that didn’t seem to affect the chocolate flavor.
After cheating on the chocolate, I also cheated on the photography! My house is up for sale and it’s tough for me to pull out all my photography gears and props, so I used my iPhone to take the photo. I think as long as you don’t use any weird filters on food photos, you can take a fairly decent food photo. After uploading the photo from my phone to my computer, I used onOne Software Photo Frame to add the blurring to the outside of the photo.
