This past year I have had a lot of time on my hands to develop skills I thought I never would have been interested in. I’ve come to find that I really love to bake (although our current house in California doesn’t have a dishwasher, which makes it more of a chore). Cookies are my absolute favorite to make because of their simplicity and deliciousness. I have made French macarons twice now, so they of course are far from perfect, being a tricky cookie to master. Yesterday, I made chocolate macaron cookies filled with a dark chocolate ganache. I couldn’t help but share the product of my labor!
