This blog resembles the pages of a glossy food magazine with a fleet of stylists making sure every bite looks impossibly scrumptious. But behind the scenes, there’s just one incredible couple, Amy and Dylan Jameson. The division of labor is simple: She cooks and blogs; he photographs. The result elevates whole-food ingredients to epic proportions. Sandwiches, noodles, green salads, and other divine dishes have earned the attention of many in the food world, including magazine, which named Good Food one of the best original recipe blogs.
|3 egg whites
|1/4 cup white sugar
|1 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
|1 cup finely ground almonds
Good Food sounds like the name of an amazingly delicious food delivery service, but don't be fooled. The blog is actually a compilation of recipes, cooking videos, and nutrition tips.
|Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
|Beat egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until whites are foamy; beat in white sugar and continue beating until egg whites are glossy, fluffy, and hold soft peaks. Sift confectioners' sugar and ground almonds in a separate bowl and quickly fold the almond mixture into the egg whites, about 30 strokes.
|Spoon a small amount of batter into a plastic bag with a small corner cut off and pipe a test disk of batter, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, onto prepared baking sheet. If the disk of batter holds a peak instead of flattening immediately, gently fold the batter a few more times and retest.
|When batter is mixed enough to flatten immediately into an even disk, spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip. Pipe the batter onto the baking sheet in rounds, leaving space between the disks. Let the piped cookies stand out at room temperature until they form a hard skin on top, about 1 hour.
|Preheat oven to 285 degrees F (140 degrees C).
|Bake cookies until set but not browned, about 10 minutes; let cookies cool completely before filling.
