Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Peanut Meringues with Chocolate Peanut Sauce

Saturday, May 05, 2012

4 egg whites
¼ t cream of tartar
¼ t vanilla
1/8 t salt
1 C sugar
½ C finely chopped roasted peanuts

1/3 C sugar
1/3 C water
1/3 C peanut butter
1/3 C Nutella

Beat the egg whites and the next 3 ingredients in a mixing bowl on medium speed until soft peaks form.  Gradually beat in sugar on high speed until stiff peaks form.  Fold in the peanuts.  Shape with a spoon or pipe onto parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour or until set and dry.

For the sauce, combine all in a small saucepan, heat until sugar is dissolved.  Drizzle over ice cream on top of meringues.  You’ll find lots of other uses!
