Joyeux Easter Week!

Wanted to wish you all a very joyous
Easter week

I definitely have a list much longer than my arm
of to dos (that's an understatement ;)
I have managed to get some of it
done here at my petite shoppe

I believe we're finally going to try our hand
(my husband's that is...) at making macarons
over the weekend (yay!)

Have you made them before?
No, not ate them silly... made them!

UPDATE 4.10:
Can anyone help me??
How do I get my profile views past 5900
Big dilemma, I know... but I'd appreciate
any help please!

See you next week
(and yes, I'm still doing the Petite Marie giveaway - I promise!)

Happy Easter to All



Happy Easter Tracie and Zeke from Lisa & Alfie
P.S.Let me know how they turn out!

Never made macaroons! But I do love them! I'm afraid I'm the only coconut eater in my house, so I simply buy them (seldom) for myself. Happy Easter! :)

Andrea said...

Oh...I love macaroons...but have never tried making them. Let us know how they turn out. Happy Easter!

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

I love macaroons! I made them awhile ago but they didn't turn out very well. Good luck!

I won't be at Alameda in May but I plan on going in June so we should meet up. Maybe we can have a big NorCal blogger get together there!

Fete et Fleur said...

I hope you post a photo of your Macarons! I would love to see them.


June said...

My mom used to make them a lot but I have never tried. Now that I read your post today I won't be able to get them off my mind, so maybe it's time I tried. I'll let you know if they turn out. I'm sure yours will.
Happy Easter, June

Happy Easter to you as well Tracie! I finally just got your "little something" sent out...hope it makes it in time! I have never made macaroons...not even sure if I tried them? Is that weird? Probably...but you know me...Ms. Picky! Be sure to take pics if you make them! Okay well I hope you have a lovely weekend and get that list accomplished!

Hi Tracie,

No, I have eaten delicious macaroons, but never tried making them.
I think they are probably like making
meringues, which I make. Good luck and please let us know how they turn out.

I hope that you get your, to do list completed ~ lovely to be busy isn't it.

Never had macaroons, but I have been seeing them all over lately, they are the posh treat right now, so perhaps I should indulge?

Good luck on making them!

Ali @ Betty and Violet said...

Have a Happy Easter! I just made macaroons this weekend, they are sort of my signature baking recipe as I love making them! They are nothing like the elegant French macarons, but the very traditional English version made with lots of ground almonds ~ scrumptious!
