Hello and Welcome
I really wanted to start my blog off with a beautiful photo. I am currently in love with this picture. Mostly because a. I took it and b. I also made those gorgeous, yummy macarons in said photo. I'm quite proud of myself, especially for the latter.
The recipe I used can be found here on Cannelle et Vanille. Aran needs no introduction, as I'm sure if you've found your way here, you've certainly passed through her amazing, drool worthy blog.
This particular recipe for chocolate macarons has worked every single time for me that I've tried it. I filled them with a simple bittersweet chocolate ganache flavored with a hint of frangelico liqueur. I used equal parts (by weight) chocolate and whipping cream, replacing one tablespoon of the whipping cream with the frangelico.
More macaron musings to come, in the meantime, feel free to drool over the photo.
