Chocolate Macarons

The only thing that could possibly improve the macaron is with chocolate.  Ever since my last post about macarons, I’ve improved my technique a bit, and I’m proud to say I can successfully make them almost every time.  Now the only thing left for me to do in the macaron world besides mastering the cookie, of course, is to make every flavor known to man.  I decided to start with something simple, the chocolate macaron.   Continue reading Chocolate Macarons

RE:Framed: Countless Baking Fails

For the first time this school year, I’m genuinely enjoying the book I’m reading in my English class:  The Count of Monte Cristo.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Alexander Dumas’ genius, it’s a book about pure revenge.  The count, or Dantes, as he is referred to, has been betrayed by his enemies and is throne into the horrible prison of Chateau d’lf for life.  Basically, that’s the gist of where I am in the novel right now, I don’t want to give away too much.  The book right now is full of exciting twists and turns and new characters.  It’s like Pretty Little Liars, except… in English form?

Macaron Mishaps

We’ve all been there.  You take out a good 3 to 4 hours of your day to attempt the afamed macaron, a delicate French cookie that seems to be taking the world by storm.  And, after those 3 to 4 hours, as you sit by the oven, watching your creations, terrible things happen.  From cracks, to macarons stuck together, to hallows, the marks of a failed macaron are endless.  You’re about to pull out your hair because you spent so much time on these finnicky cookies.

RE:Framed: A (Krimi) Sweet Creation…..

I’ve always had a dream that one day, I’d open a world class bakery/cupcakery catering to sweet tooths all over.

But, honestly, I don’t know if I’d actually have the patience (or the fiance) to sprout a bakery form scratch.  I mean, I’d have to pay rent, figure out all the business junk, and all that craziness.   Continue reading RE:Framed: A (Krimi) Sweet Creation…..

Macarons De-mystified (Part 1)

First, you might notice the “typo” in the title.  It’s not a typo.  It’s the correct way how to spell macarons.   A macaron is completely different from a macaroon.  Usually, when people say “macaroons,” they are probably thinking of the light and delicate almond meringue cookie that’s sold at a ridiculously high price at high end bakeries and patisseries.
