#90: Try macarons and then make them.

I've always wanted to MAKE macarons because they are SO DELICATE AND PRETTY, but I've never had one, so I'd make them and then be like, I don't know. Probably?

But then Joel went to New York and brought me back two macarons from La Maison du Chocolat, which is apparently The Fanciest.

He had to transport the macarons in his glasses case, because how else do you get something like this home?

Pistachio: a weirdly good flavor for things.

Coffee: never a bad choice.

The crust is crispy like woah, and the insides! So creamy! How is a thing LIGHT and RICH at the same time?

Alas, a lonely plate.


Strawberry-chocolate macarons!

Most of them were funny-shaped, but now I know what I'm doing and could do it again, and better.

if you ever should happen to find yourself in edmonton, please let me know and i will take you to a delicious french bake shoppe that makes many different flavors of macarons. at valentine's, they even make heart-shaped ones.

Crazy. I just made macarons and had that feeling of "probably?" since I'd never actually had one before. Perhaps I should make them for you and you can judge.
