Thankfully, most of my family doesn’t even pay attention to this site. Because of this, I can admit to the following. Now that I have started working again and I am getting back into the swing of things, I am totally going to take advantage of having babysitters that are here after work twice a week to get some posting done. It might be a while before I get into crazy recipes again. Finding the time to take photos while cooking is a whole new challenge. Luckily, I have a backlog of quite a few recipes to write up. Who know, maybe this will give me an opportunity to tweak and perfect some recipes too.
In the meantime… One of my maternity leave goals (pre-baby) was to learn how to make French Macarons. It was successful! Have you had one? It is a delightful little almond flour meringue cookie sandwiched with a bit of whatever filling you can dream of. You can flavor the cookies or not. They have the perfect combination of soft & chewy and crispy & crunchy. A bit of magic in your mouth.
For Valentine’s Day I gave my husband a dozen roses :0) I am a super cheeseball. We are suckers for flower flavors. I have a thing for lavender and he likes rose. So, my first batch of macarons was a pink cookie with either lavender or rose buttercream filling. Recipe will come soon eventually. For now, what other flavors should I try once I find the time to spend on these delightful little bites?
