Macarons and Mia

I spent yesterday morning with my friends Basak, Hillary, and Baby Mia baking macarons. Well, three-month-old Mia didn’t bake, but she was our team mascot. Our very cute team mascot.

Now that I know how to bake macarons, I fear I will start making them all the time. You know, the same way I made homemade Oreos and bacon chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter sea salt cookies. And the same way I fear I shall be making jam and pickles in two weeks or so. Oh, and my mom has promised to give me her recipe for tomato candy. Yes, folks, such a thing exists and it is amazing. Expect me to eat that for three weeks straight.

Anyway, the recipe we used is here. I had to hand beat the egg whites because, unbelievably, neither Basak nor I had a working mixer (and one must never, ever beat eggs in a food processor). Hand beating was way easier than I remembered it being. My muscles must be getting strong from all the silkscreening. Or from all the baby holding.

    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service?
