My thanks to author Jena C. Henry who has sent me this cook from scratch recipe for some wonderful eggs for the whole family.
Magical Cloud Eggs – (for American and English cooks)
I wish I had sent this recipe to Sally before Mother’s Day. Kids would have a blast making this magical dish for Mom’s (Mum’s breakfast in bed.
But Cloud Eggs are fun any time. I made these eggs for me on a regular Thursday and giggled while (whilst) I made them and smiled as I ate them. Adding this recipe to my favorites (favourites) Enjoy!
Here are my directions. I got carried away and wrote 8 steps, but it’s really simple: separate eggs, whip the egg whites, plop them whites into cloud shapes, with a well for the egg yolk. Bake the cloud egg whites, drop in the egg yolk, bake some more and eat!
1. The only ingredient is an egg. One egg makes a serving. Decide how many eggs you want to use. (Use may Parmesan cheese if you want.)
2. Preheat your oven to 450 F degrees (I believe that is 232.222 Celsius, have fun with that!) A hot oven is what we want.
3. Separate the eggs. I put all the whites in one big bowl, and each (unbroken) yolk in a separate little cup. So if you are making four cloud eggs, you will need 1 big bowl and 4 small cups. Or if you are a child making this, you will need 7 big bowls and 21 little cups. And you might as well eat the chocolates Mom (Mum) had hidden in one of the bowls.
4. Whip the whites at high speed until stiff peaks form, about 2-3 minutes. As you may know whipping egg whites is amazingly fun. If you are a child, your Mom (Mum) would prefer it if you kept the beaters in the bowl.
5. If you want, add some grated Parmesan cheese to the egg whites. I didn’t do this, because I wanted to try it plain and then decide if I wanted cheese.
6. Put parchment paper, or something similar, on a baking sheet. Then make your clouds. Plop a pile of egg whites on the baking sheet, and make a little well for the yolk.
7. Bake the egg white clouds for about 3 minutes. Then slide the baking sheet out and gently place an egg yolk in the well you made in each cloud. Bake for 3 more minutes.
But you may want to think about timing, depending on how runny you want your egg yolks. I would say it takes 6-7 minutes of total baking. If you want firmer eggs, then I would only bake the whites for 2 minutes, and bake the yolks for 5 minutes. That way your egg white clouds won’t bake too brown. So adjust depending on your taste. Do you know what I mean? If you are child, just go watch TV and forget about them.
8. Gently remove the baked cloud eggs from the baking sheet and to loud acclaims and applause, enjoy them! Kids- Mom (Mum) doesn’t care if you dropped one on the floor- just pick it up before a pet gets it.)

About the The Golden Age of Charli RSVP
Charlotte McAntic spent her thirties, forties, and even fifties in peace and harmony aligning her marriage, mortgage, careers, and children. As she stumbles into a new phase of life—also known as the Golden Years—Charli cannot help but wonder where the gold and her husband, Pud, are hiding.
Pud is happily cruising down the retirement path that, for him, leads straight to the golf course. While Charli spends her days at home cleaning out closets and the basement, she yearns to gaze deeply into Pud’s blue eyes and remember all the reasons why she fell in love with him thirty years ago. Unfortunately, the only thing Pud is eying is the next fairway. Knowing there is more to savor in retirement than silver-hair shampoos, senior discounts, and hernia surgery, Charli embarks on a quest to do whatever it takes to spend retirement in the embrace of the man she loves. But is it too late for happily ever after?
In this humorous novel, a high-energy wife and her solid guy must learn to adjust to a new chapter in their lives and find their way back into each other’s hearts after their retirement begins with a jolt.
