Oh my goodness, those look delicious! I've tried like 5 times--failing each time--to make paleo meranges. I'd love Jocelyn's recipe!

It's here in the surplus eggs thread! The initial recipe picture there is not mine. I usually don't flavor mine (except for maple syrup) and I just spoon them onto the cookie sheet instead of using anything like a pastry bag or tube. I just put another tip or two here with photos of ones I've made in the past in that recipe thread.

This thread is for celebrating Akhu and all the awesome work and learning experiences the boots are racking up. Gut gemacht, meiner guter Herr!

Thanks so much for the picture of Gert's cabin.  I heard about it on the podcast but it's nice to see it.  I really like the stepping rounds of wood.

It's great to see people gathering and getting things done.  Hurray for boots!   Hurray for Fred!
