i have fallen madly in love with macarons. the first time i tried them, i didn't know what all the fuss was about...but the past month or so i find myself constantly sneaking away to Honoré Bakery, which is dangerously too close to my house; (luckily, tho, it is just far enough away for me to not visit there every day.) sadly, tho, this last visit i was horribly bad and bought a dozen!
i fully intend to attempt making some of my own one day - hopefully soon - they just seem so intimidating.
they're so pretty i always find it hard to choose which ones i want and i always try new flavors when i visit...and am usually quite satisfied. the lavender is always my favorite.
