This week, friends, I’ve got a shiny new recipe that took many attempts to perfect.
I offered to write a guest post for Laura’s Mess and decided upon French macarons.
As we Northerners enter into the cold and desolation of winter (Well, we’re technically entering into fall, but we likely won’t be graced with its presence for long before winter shows its face!), and Southerners enter into the fresh rejuvenation of spring, I decided on a macaron recipe fitting for all seasons and any hemisphere: Dark Chocolate Orange. The slight piquancy of citrus is especially for those of you in or entering a season of warmth, and the chocolate is for anyone, because is there ever not a time for chocolate?
Laura somehow stumbled upon Milk & Cereal a year or two ago now, and she immediately started following this blog, always leaving the sweetest & most encouraging comments. Though we have yet to meet face-to-face, I consider her a true friend and am continually blessed by her. Laura’s stunning photos, captivating words, and love for the Lord are an inspiration, and you should certainly go have a look at her blog if you’ve never done so! Honestly, her blog is not like the rest out there (in the best of ways!).
So head on over to Laura’s Mess to see my Dark Chocolate & Orange Macaron recipe, complete with a plethora of tips from my own experiences and from the pros!
What have you all been up to lately?
Rob and I enjoyed a relaxing Labor Day weekend at home, with nothing on our schedules and free to do whatever we felt like. The week before, we visited my mom in Breckenridge, CO. The weather was rather cold and rainy much of the time, but we managed to get in one small hike. It was wonderful to be up in the mountains spending time with family!
Thanks for stopping by, and I do hope to be back with another recipe for you before long!
