French Macarons...

After the week that I've had, dreaming of making some of these scrumptious little cookies is just what I need to make life feel a little bit more normal again...

Do I dare try to make some?  
Or will I find myself getting addicted to them as everyone else in blogland seems to be?

And lets not forget how hard they are to make or should I say, "easy to mess-up"...

BUT they are just so pretty/dainty and yummy- well at least that's what everyone says- 
{ can you believe that I have never actually had one }

And the flavor combinations are just AMAZING!

If you would like to experiment with your own flavor combinations, I found a few recipes you can use for the basics of making macarons...
from Kevin & Amanda, French Macarons
from Cake Journal, How to Make Macarons

Now if you're like me and aren't quite into creating your own flavors, then you can do a simple search on Pinterest and find hundreds of options!

Here's what I've found so far.

Have a wonderful week, lovelies- I've got a certain little prince needing some cuddles!

Pin It!
