In The Kitchen
We tend to bake on the weekends and we like to make it special. Pastries and fancy cakes are amazing tea time treats. Any one who knows me, knows I love some tea time 🙂 But alas, I have never made macarons, until now. I always thought they might be a bit too fancy for me to make. Simply not true! With this great tutorial, Angela the ParisienneFarmgirl made the whole process easy and explained everything very well. The picture above is my first batch ever, I think they turned out pretty good! I need to work on size control :)
If you ever get the hankering to make some yummy French cookies, check out this great tutorial!

Our first Martha book came when Dad bought it from Costco for Mom, I remember drooling over the photos when I was little. I wanted to make everything in the book! Maybe I will someday. I soon found that you need to follow the directions, there’s a reason for everything. If you want your ginger cookies to come out thin and crispy then you need to refrigerate it like she says!
We were at a consignment shop recently and we spotted this book. When I saw the cover I was delighted, but when I saw the price tag ($2.99), I was really thrilled. Huge score for Martha Stewart’s Cooking School. Below are the pictures of what I made and links to these great recipes!
Have you ever had that time, when you’re just craving chocolate? I was having that craving, and I wanted to try these cupcakes out. I’ve always wanted to conquer a meringue frosting too. Needless to say, these were delicious and simple to make. So if you love chocolate and our family does, then these simple cupcakes are for you. Delicious and easy to make, these are real showstoppers when frosted with Swiss Meringue Butter Cream and topped with various goodies.
I would say these books are great for cooking and baking, especially if you want to hone in on some serious baking skills.
