I love making macarons. Yes, they are temperamental and sometimes unpredictable depending on the time of the month (jks), but I love a good challenge once in a while so I like tackling a good macaron recipe every now and then.
Macarons are not hard to make once you’ve mastered the basics. I prefer the Italian meringue method because it gives you a more stable macaron and it is easier for the less skilled (i.e. me). I have tried the French method before but have failed miserably in macaronage.
It’s okay, you only need one trusty recipe to make beautiful macarons. There are a few flavours which I love and make all the time: salted caramel, raspberry chocolate, lemon cheese and earl grey chocolate. I love making and eating these flavoured macarons.
Another thing about macarons is that they’re so photogenic. You put a few of them together, whether monochrome or with a variety of colours, they will look good in pictures. What’s not to love about these temperamental babies who are equally yummy and photogenic?
