Very Good 4.0/5

Gazpacho is one of my favorite summer meals, and it's no coincidence that it's also one of the easiest to make. It's simply a chilled, usually blended vegetable soup of Spanish origin.

Angel Food Cake
Good 3.0/5
(1 rating)

Found this recipe on allrecipes.com
I didn't have cream of tartar, so I omited it, making sure that the egg whites were room temperature as suggested. It worked out really well: the cake is satisfying and light, and moist. I have to freeze half of it so that I don't eat it all at once! Each slice is only 115 calories.
