Yes, it's Really a Thing!

National Macaron Day actually started many years ago originating in Paris and soon spreading to New York. If you're lucky enough to be in either of the cities celebrating, you can enjoy complimentary macarons at your local bakeries. If you can't get out to celebrate, go ahead and make your own at home.

They require some concentration, but the results are worth it.


The first tip would be to remember that a little bit of food coloring goes a long way. Don't overdo it! The second tip would be to make sure you don't skip the "smacking" step. That's when you have squeezed out the mixture onto your sheet pan and you gently hit the pan against the counter. This ensures that all of the air bubbles go out, so you get that smooth top you're looking for.

Bake these when you have the morning free and are looking for a fun new project. They hold well in the fridge for a few days, so you'll have plenty to pack with you to work.

That Floral Feeling

I chose these lavender macarons for you to try because they really signify the start of spring! Honey and lavender is an awesome duo and I can't wait for you guys to try them!
