I’m no stranger to macaron eating, but the idea of making them on my own had never crossed my mind. Not until a friend of mine made some in her residence kitchen for another friend of mine. That is all the empowering I needed and thought to myself, “if Amelia can make these, so can I.” And so the macaron journey began. On a super snowy January day, I made my first batch of macarons. Okay, so maybe it wan’t just one as I am a bit of perfectionist and made 3 batches before I was semi satisfied. But I think you’d agree there was still lots of room for improvement.
