I have been remiss in posting and in thanks, so here is a long overdue blog to Joy Schultz who was inspired to go out an make some macarons and then send them to me for some feedback. She, however, did not commit the fateful wax paper mistake that effectively destroyed my macarons, and so hers were perfect. I think they are by far the best ones I have had since leaving France. She followed this recipe, used my chocolate ganache recipe for some, and then improvised a delicious orange butter-cream filling for some others. These pictures don’t give justice to how beautiful they were, and the raspberry ones aren’t even shown because I devoured them before I could even think to snap a picture. Thanks Joy!

Lately, on InstagramWhen faced with a door, his new thing is to bang on it repeatedly as he yells, “I’M KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR!” Further proof that, as our babysitter put it, “Henry just feels every emotion more intensely than other kids.” 😂Also proof that his musical education is coming along nicely.Please tell me you are likewise incapable of orchard restraint and come home with obscene amounts of fruit you can’t eat fast enough. And then tell me what I should do with all these apples. Bonus points for savory/paleo options and don’t even try suggesting that I can anything. #nothappening
