I know it's been a long while since I updated last. As always, life happens and the simple pleasures of life get set aside. Not that my passion for baking has been set aside! I've been baking almost every day! From cookies, to cupcakes, to breads, to strudels. There is always freshly baked sweet or savory something in my house.
Today was no exception! I've been craving these little bad boys for a while now. I love it when I go into an Italian restaurant (fancy and non), and get garlic knots. They're always so garli-ky, oily, and there's always that something when you bite into one that makes you just say "yummmmmmm"! I've made these once before years ago, but these came out way better!
I have accomplished one of my life goals, which was to make French Macarons!
Mastering the art of the French Macaron is a challenge. The process itself isn't hard, but it does take practice to make the technique perfect. There was so many ways in which you can screw up your recipe and technique if you're not careful. Otherwise, your macarons won't be smooth, round, and fluffy. There are a lot of websites and I suggest doing your homework and watching videos before trying to tackle these.
