I haven't really done much since the move, mostly just job hunting. I haven't even finished unpacking yet, not having a dresser to put the remainder of my clothes in.
However, today being the first official day of Spring, I felt the need to celebrate a little. I knew I wanted to bake something and it, somehow, had to be light and fun. French macarons were the perfect option. I have only made them two other times on my own so I knew it would be a challenge. I used this recipe for the shells (very detailed and easy to follow directions for any beginners) and then just made a simple raspberry butter cream for the filling. The final result was probably my most successful attempt yet. The texture and look all turned out near-perfect.
I look forward to enjoying them after dinner with Josh, who has never had French macarons before. I hope mine are a good first impression.
