Operation Macarons… success!
I’ve been obesessing over Macarons over the past few weeks, and I finally get a chance to give it a try. It’s not perfect, but definitely better than I expected. I did very extensive reasearch, compared to what I do normally, I looked up many different ones, and read about common mistakes (over beaten batter, etc), and in the end decided to use David Lebovitz’s recipe, cause it’s the simplest one, and sounds the most delicious, it’s chocolate!

Summer TO DO list: Number two.
Learn to make these delicious, little devils. I’ve only ever had them when I was in Paris last October. I don’t know where to find them anywhere close to home, though.
Just went absolutely MAD today, I found out that the V&D (a dutch department store) is selling macarons! So I had to go there and get some! Not exactly Laduree but they’re nice enough. :D
