How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Royal Icing

For Gingerbread houses, or graham cracker houses @ Christmas time, as is one of our many, many holiday traditions.

3 egg whites,
a splash of warm water
about 4-4 1/2 cups of powdered sugar

Mix really, really well with electric mixer on low speed.  Might have to add more water or sugar to get the right consistency.  For kids' crafting purposes, the right consistency is:  thin enough to squeeze through a ziplock bag w/ the tip cut, for piping, but thick enough that it works like glue for candies onto the graham cracker houses.
