We had a sunny but windy Sunday up here. I'm so glad we decided to take a short trip to a lake nearby despite the heavy wind. The forest ground was full of kidneyworts (Anemone hepatica) and wood anemones (Anemone nemorosa). Seeing the sea of wild flowers is definitely a proof of spring to me!
To celebrate the spring we cooked asparagus with hollandaise sauce, it was as delicious as you can imagine. To make a hollandaise sauce you need the egg yolks only. I didn't want to waste the egg whites so I baked meringues. This was my first try with meringues and they turned out just nice ( I whipped egg whites and sugar by hand and baked the cookies in 100 celsius for about 1 hour 10 minutes). Next time I would love to try a lemon meringue tart. I just found a recipe for this on Mitsy's blog, fun! Have you ever baked one and how did it turn out?
