Hello everyone!  I hope everyone had a happy holiday season.  I'm still here in Missouri, baking cookies as usual.  I've switched gears from sugar cookies to macarons.  I hadn't baked these since pastry school and forgot how fun they are to bake.  They're tricky to make, but once you've made them a few times you get the feel for them.  I've baked four batches in the past month. 

I'm trying to perfect the recipe and technique.  Soon, I'd like to experiment with different flavors and colors.  Pictures to follow!  Do you all have a favorite macaron recipe?  Or a technique I should know about?  What flavor should I bake next?  I'm thinking some Valentine's Day macarons need to happen.  Or Mardi Gras.... that could be fun as well.
