Author Notes

I named this recipe because it is mostly nothing but air. It's fun to make because it's sort of magic. It breaks all those rules you've heard abou egg whites. You don't have to let them get to room temperature. There's no whipping them first and carefully folding in other ingredients. You just put all the ingredients in a big bowl and beat until you have this huge strawberry cloud. —judye
