It's that time of year!
I am ready to start baking...
and my quest is to make French Macaron cookies.
I have been wanting to make them for a couple of years now...
and this year I am giving it a go!
I have pinned a slough of pictures on my Pinterest board of
these lovely creations.
They are a little tricky to make but I am
ready for the challenge.
Here is my thought:
I would love to give these as small gifts for Christmas!
So, that is my incentive!
In preparation for the holiday's I also bought myself
a new cookbook:
A delicious baking cookbook.
(the Model Bakery famous English muffins)
The book is recipes from the amazing Model Bakery that is in the Napa area
of California. St. Helena to be exact.
The weather is on my side... cold and rainy, so the perfect time to fire up the oven
and get busy in the kitchen!
Another wonderful place in Napa is the Jordan Vineyards and Winery!
In my opinion,
Napa is probably one of the best parts of California...
the food, the wine, and the countryside.
Here is a video from their chef on making French Macaron's!
How to Make French Macarons: demonstration video tutorial (not Macaroons)
The Jordan Vineyards has another You Tube video on making pie crust...
it's well worth watching!
Happy hump day!
