I swoon over French macarons. They’re so delicate and sweet and divine. I’ve tried making them once before, and I can now truly appreciate the effort that goes into making one of these little cookies (and I can understand why each one costs at least $1 wherever you go).
After dinner at Mas Malo last night (I’m such a sucker for the potato and cheese tacos), I headed over to Bottega Louie for a sweet fix. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had revamped their flavors for Fall. They still have some of the stand-by favorites - Tahitian Vanilla, Earl Grey, Rose, Raspberry – but they’re also serving Cinnamon Caramel and Chestnut Apricot. The Chestnut Apricot was my favorite of the newbies - Autumn spices and a tiny bit tangy. Plus the gift box ($10 for 5) is just so cute. It seriously makes the best hostess gift. Or "thanks for watching my dog for the weekend" gift – Thanks, Natalie :)
