This, my friends, is the first bite of the first macaron I've ever had. For years I've been dying to have one. I've drooled over countless pictures and recipes.

Macarons are a traditional French pastry and this one was worth the wait. There are no bakeries around me that make macarons (I had this in Vegas), so now that I've had one - I'm just going to have to make them myself. And let me tell you, I am scared! Making these little suckers is all about technique.

Generally my baking skills are good, my technique - that could use some work. But I love a good challenge, especially in the kitchen. I'm going to us a chocolate recipe from a great resource - David Lebovitz. So if you are interested in going down this rabbit hole with me, stay tuned as I soon will be tackling this on my own!

In the meantime - look at all these beautiful macarons (and get a head start on making some for yourself if you dare!)
