Pink French Macaroons  and Pink Paris Accented Shorts and a Handbag.

It was just a PINK weekend..

My Tiffany and I have been wanting to make some of those French Macaroons and of course we wanted PINK.  So finally we found the Almond Meal/Flour and this was no easy task.  After searching our local shops for some time we finally found out that it is usually in the health foods isle with nutritional foods, vitamins etc.  So here is the almond meal/flour that we found.  It runs about $9.00 a bag but one bag will make a lot of macaroons.

I had searched the interwebs and I found a recipe that I thought would be easy enough and we followed this recipe for our Pink French Macaroons. You can find the recipe here:

This was our first attempt and although they did not come out perfectly beautiful and they seem to be missing the macaroon foot, they are fabulous!  We love them because we made them together and we had so much fun making them.  Also, they are beyond delicious.  I had no idea French Macaroons were so delightfully tasty and good.  Now I know and I plan to make more in the near future.  I also think I know why I did not get the macaroon foot and I intend to fix that tiny problem.  

We filled them with white chocolate granache which I already know how to make. We are very happy with our macaroons and here they are.....

Aren't they beautiful!  We think so and WOW are they ever so delicious!!!!!!

I also made another pair of shorts and a handbag for myself.  I made the shorts just like I had made my other set using my favorite shorts to cut out a pattern.  

I used a cotton duck fabric that I found at Hobby Lobby.  It has shades of pink and green in it and cute little Paris images. 

I asked my resident model to show off my shorts and my handbag for me and she was happy to do it. Here is Tiffany modeling my new summer shorts and matching handbag.

Such a happy girl!

Isn't she the BEST model ever?  The camera loves her.....
Thank you my dear sweet Tiffany. 

Oh I almost forgot, while taking pictures my Tiffany wanted to take some of me.  I shared hers so it is only fair that I share mine. 

Me Dancing!

 Say Cheese!

My new too Faced Make Up 
makes me feel so special and girly!

Until next time happy everything,

I am thankful for my blessings.

  3. OHHHHH!!!! You girls you!! Busy in the kitchen and having a blast making memories!! I'll be that was so much fun! I have never tasted a macaroon, and yet I see them posted all over blogland (those French one especially), and wonder, what on earth is there so exciting about a macaroon??? Is it better than an Oreo??? SO...let me know! And your model is gorgeous!! The shorts are just so cute! And a matching bag is something I'm jealous of. Now I must thank you so much for the help with the pictures and the photos you sent! I'm going to try to work the Monkey thing and get some good shots from them...maybe even a sparkle or two!!
    Your first photo in this post shows some drop-dead gorgeous tiny dishes...salt dips??? but what ever they are they are hand painted and LOVELY!! So excited that your summer is fun!

  6. Ohhhh, how wonderfully delicious your macarons look. A few years back I developed a serious egg allergy and haven't been able to bite into a macaron since, so I just enjoy them vicariously through sweet posts like this. (I did recently find a recipe online for vegan ones that forgo eggs, and I think I might try it for my birthday or another fun celebration this summer.)

    Your new make-up is so splendidly pretty! There isn't a single hue in the summer eyes palette that I wouldn't wear, too.
