Foolproof Rib Roast
This is the right method, but 145 degrees will get you a medium to medium well roast. For medium rare, I would not let it go past 130 in the final cooking time. Check the temperature before you turn the oven back on. Based on the size of the roast and the quality of your oven, you might already be at 130 after 2 hours with the oven off. Based on the pictures, most of those look medium well with very little pink. Remember that the ends will always be more cooked, so if you have guests that don't like medium rare, you can serve them the end pieces. And keep the yummy rare pieces for those of you that know better.... And yes, somebody else has published this recipe with her name on it, but I betcha her grandmother was already using this method before she became famous.

Started the dough using the sponge method and then divided into 15 balls to rise. I think my dough was a little dry, so they came out rather thick. I cooked them over medium-high heat in a large fry pan and they came out lovely. I will omit the garlic next time as it scorched during the cooking. I think they needed more salt, but the texture was perfect.

Authentic French Meringues
Confectioners suger contains some cornstarch, which will contribute to the stability of the meringues. If you substitute regular sugar, you should add a tablespoon of cornstarch at the end, along with any flavoring or food coloring.
