Sweets
Packed lunches, scratch desserts, and laundry -- those are my three strong points as a wife. You don't want to know about my weak ones ...

I recommend the fluff. It's light, delicious, refreshing for the summer, doesn't heat up the kitchen, and isn't too bad for you. It requires some maneuvering, though, which is difficult for me since I have very little counter space.

You take 3/4 of a cup of sugar and mix it with three egg yolks in a bain de marie over low heat. (I don't have a bain de marie and don't see the point. I just stick a small saucepan in a larger saucepan with water in it and it works fine.) Mix it till it's fairly smooth and add the grated zest and juice of one large lemon. Remove from heat. Dissolve two packets of gelatin in two tablespoons of boiling water, then add it to the lemon-sugar-egg mixture. In one bowl, beat up two small cans of evaporated milk till it's twice its original volume, and in another whip up the three egg whites till stiff. Beat the lemon-sugar-egg-gelatin mixture with the evaporated milk, then fold in the egg whites. Pour it into a bowl and refrigerate it until it's stiff.  Just the thing for a hot night.

I read up on egg safety and am convinced that as long as you use undamaged, properly refrigerated eggs and are in good health, it is safe to eat them raw.

So are we doing a cookie exchange or what, guys?
