Home with the kids? Looking for a project? May I suggest making wonderfully tender homemade marshmallows? It's true! You can make marshmallows! And, like so many things, they are so much better than what you can buy. It's a great baking project, and watching the sugar, egg whites, and gelatin transform into pillow marshmallows will have the kiddos in awe (note, keep younger or less experienced cooks far away from the sugar syrup - it's hot and it burns something wicked). I've broken it down, with plenty of pictures to guide your way, in How to Make Marshmallows.
