French Macarons

The last several weeks I have been getting exercise with my friend Rosemary. Our reward after walking about an hour is usually going and getting something sweet! Yes, it probably voids the exercise but, it makes us feel better! One of our favorite treats is at Miette, a Hazelnut French Macaron . These are heavenly treats and totally worth the small fortune that is paid for just one macaroon. I decided to try and make the macaroons a few weeks ago and they turned out really yummy. The one thing I forgot to buy was heavy cream for the fillings so I improvised and used a peanut butter and chocolate mixture.

Holiday Wreath

Since Thanksgiving I put my last years wreath up on my front door. Which I thought I was going to keep up until I went to my friend Liz's house and she was making the cutest wreath for her front door. I decided to make the same wreath as Liz! Thanks Liz! The only thing I had to buy was a wreath wire holder, which I got a Micheal's Craft Store for like 3 bucks! How cool is that!
