I love to bake. I absolutely love it. When I was growing up, I would be my mom’s helper in the kitchen, probably making more of a mess then I should have. Because my mom is amazing, she taught me the basics of how to make most things and I have been using that knowledge to be fearless in the kitchen. This past fall, I think I have been too fearless, using too many eggs, pounds of sugar and sticks of butter, to attempt recipes that are super complicated. I must admit, many things have not turned out just like the are supposed to in the pages of Martha Stewart Living. Instead, they were an utter failure.
I have a friend though, Kristina, that has become my baking partner in crime. We have spent lots of time in my kitchen experimenting with making French Macarons. Each batch we make is an improvement on the last and they are so delicious. My favorite flavour was mint chocolate, coloured to be a bright teal.
I photographed the mint chocolate flavour and the lemon that we made. Enjoy!
My kitty, Maverick had to get in on the action!
