This weekend I tackled a fun item on my 30 before 30 list: baking macarons from scratch! I took a class last summer (and marked that off my list too!) which was super helpful background when trying to recreate them on my own. The verdict: I was 50/50 on macaron success. I made a batch of lemon macarons that were  a bust, they lost their shape and cooked unevenly. But batch #2 — a raspberry macaron with raspberry champagne butter-cream filling — came out great. They weren’t perfect, but they were tasty and looked pretty good! I filled up a footed bowl with them and brought them off to Easter celebrations.

    Macarons + that outfit + that bowl = perfection.

    These are GORG it’s not even fair. I’ve had the best luck with Martha Stewart’s recipe (#typical) and am dying to try them again soon!

    I have been dying to make macaroons lately! It seems every time I decide I will something pops up. I found a great simple recipe recently that I really want to try and compare to some more advanced flavors. Macaroons are some of my favorite treats 🙂
