NYC Bake Sale 2013

With perfect spring weather, it felt like one of those weekends when everything could go right–especially for a charity bake sale. Lillian and I had planned NYC Bake Sale for quite some time and finally, the day came for all the details to align.

Matcha Macarons w Bittersweet Ganache

One of the reasons I love participating in Mactweets is to turn desserts into a compact variation in the form of a French macaron. Most of the time the challenge is more about the theme and flavor profile not the actual dessert. Nevertheless, I’ve converted Pumpkin Mousse Tartettes and Cremisicles into macarons. The great thing […]

Chocolate Macarons with Pumpkin Cream

With Thanksgiving behind us and Fall rapidly fading, we all have fresh memories of the season. Over the past few weeks, there were non-stop online chatter and food shows about favorite dishes for the holiday season.  Besides turkey, most of the recipes depend on harvest produce— squashes, pumpkins, apples, pears, plus hearty greens such as […]

the difference an “o” makes — orange scented macaroons

Orange Scented Macaroons

As much as I’ve enjoyed the Mactweets Challenges for these past few months, each one brings a dash of nervousness—a French macaron can fail for many reasons. I can control egg-white whisking, the flavor profile, and color manipulation by practice and experience.  On the other hand, I can anticipate and prepare for summer weather that’s […]

Flaming Mame- Raspberry Macarons

The Mactweets Challenge this month—summer  flicks—could  include anything as unappetizing as metallic action blockbusters to sugary romantic comedies—plus a sleeper indie that might be temporarily satisfying but leaves you hungry in an hour. I wanted a movie that would be stylistically feasible and fully satiating to translate into my macaron concept. I needed something more […]

livin’ easy — creamsicle macarons

Creamsicle Macarons

When Mactweet came up with the challenge of creating a macaron based on your favorite song, I had no idea how to start, at first. I wanted to create a macaron that not only looked the part, but tasted it, too. I checked my playlists—but then considered old favorites and the possibilities opened full voice […]

my sweet wild thing – black sesame macarons

Black Sesame Macarons

The Call of the Wild is the theme for June’s Mactweets Challenge. I expect that many people conjure up images of lions and tigers in the African bush, exotic birds and primates of the Amazon, or even whales, sharks and seals of the oceans. For this urban-raised boy with a design background, however, my mind […]

Chocolate Macaron w Bittersweet Mocha Ganaché

I don’t recall having a favorite children’s book or reading that much for pleasure outside of school work. I do recall Barbar and a few standard children’s books and comic books. They didn’t seem to resolve my need to express my imagination, however.  For that, I turned to Lego. Back in those days, Lego was composed […]

spring fever…paris on my mind – lemon macaroons

Lemon Macarons

When I get Spring fever, it’s not the daffodils, grape hyacinth, or snow caps that evoke the feeling. Flowers are beautiful, but it’s the food that truly touches my heart. I long to stroll through the farmer’s market and buy the produce of spring. There’s the fragrant garlic scape, the abundance of asparagus, and the […]
