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 InstagramHome is where they are. Also the place that we just committed to paying for over the next 30 years.Free donuts for redheads today at @sugarshackdmv , which this ginger interpreted as “wear all red and only get the red donut,” one that coincidentally did not qualify for the promo. Not that I had the heart to tell him. So here we are with the free donut we paid for and an absolutely ecstatic toddler who feels pretty lucky that he has “lots of read hairs.” Me too kid, me too. (Oh and that bit of blue under the red is his baseball tee shirt, which he insisted on wearing under the football jersey inspite of the 80 degree weather. Because the only thing better than athletic apparel to this kid is luggage, and that can’t be worn. Regretfully.)
