Coconut Tuiles



I feel terrible that I haven't updated this blog for so long. A lot has changed since Christmas and I must have let it become my excuse to take a vacation.

So I haven't been able to bake all that much; instead of brainstorming new ideas, I found myself going back to the same recipes over and over for special occasions and gifts. The extra time I had I spent job hunting. I'd say it paid off. I will be starting a job with Pepsi next week as a Territory Sales Rep.

Christmas Macarons








My technique is getting closer and closer to perfection! My friend wanted to order 4 dozens so he can give them out as Christmas gifts, and that is a perfectly good reason for me to get into the kitchen again. I've been at a constant battle with my parents regarding this baking thing. Long story short, my mom doesn't want me baking at all and never wants to hear the word "cake" around the house. Putting my negotiation skills to work, I've gotten it to baking once a week, and a full day's worth. At least with a good 10 hours, I can create something cool.
