When somebody tells me I can't do something, guess what?
The above happens.
Nobody in particular told me I couldn't tackle a macaron, aside from the whole Internet. Apparently this is one of the tougher recipes to tackle. So, guess what (again)? Yup, I decided to attack the elusive M A C A R O N!
Over the years, I've Pinterest-ed them, studied them, envied them. And yesterday for some unknown reason - aside from cabin fever - I decided it was time.
I had all the necessary ingredients, thanks to a short love affair with the Keto diet: almond flour, lots of eggs, and even more sugar (since sugar is the devil).

They turned out beautifully.

No. It's not what you think.
One of the most-asked questions I receive is when am I going to get a store (BM) or why don't I just get a store.
