Hey everyone! its food fridays again heh. today, I got a wonderful low calorie treat for all of you - chocolate meringue cookies!

at only 11 calories per cookies OMG I can totally binge on them just kidding

Ingredients:

6 egg whites, room temperature
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1 /2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
¼ cup unsweetened chocolate cocoa
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preparation:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or use the Silicone Baking Mats to prevent the cookies from sticking.

In a small bowl, combine the ¼ cup cocoa and sugar together; set aside.

In a large bowl using your electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy/frothy. Check out How To Make A Perfect Meringue. While beating to the frothy stage, add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract. After reaching the frothy stage, add the cocoa/sugar mixture (1 tablespoons at a time) while continuing beating until the egg whites are stiff and glossy.

Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets (1-inch apart).

In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon cocoa and cinnamon. Using a sieve or a sifter, sprinkle mixture over the non-baked cookies.

Bake 90 minutes; turn off the oven, open the door slightly (secure with a wooden spoon), and allow cookies to cool in the oven. Remove from oven and store in a tightly covered (airtight) container.

Yields 50 cookies.

Kings of crab: Cousins claw out success at new Opa-locka seafood shack

Sandwiched between a Jamaican restaurant and an unopened pizza shop in an Opa-locka strip mall, Crabman305 buzzes with customers. They come in and out at such a clip that the door of the new Miami restaurant rarely shuts.

At lunchtime on a recent Tuesday, Crabman305’s fans each walk out with two, three or more Styrofoam boxes, most filled with hot, garlic-smothered steamed crab — the house specialty.

“We’re trying to take over the seafood business in Miami,” said Johnny Fannin, 36, co-founder of the month-old storefront at 2006 Opa-locka Blvd. “We just want to grow, reach out and give back to the people of Opa-locka.”

Crabman305’s crabs-to-riches story is unlike that of most restaurants.
