Chocolate Macarons for Mother’s Day

8 May

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Friday night I stayed up past midnight to bake more macarons because I wanted to bring them back for my family for Mother’s Day weekend. However, my brother beat me to it, and bought a bunch of macarons from Buchon Bakery from Yountville. If you haven’t seen these macarons in person, they’re enormous, which made my little macarons look like nothing. Makes me want to attempt to bake macarons the size of a CD! I still think mine tasted better because 1.) they were homemade, and 2.) they were bite size.

I’m a fan of the chocolate flavored macarons with the hazelnut ganache. I also made more pistachio, but I still need to find pistachio paste to make the filling. (I’ve looked everywhere for pistachio paste, and only found them online on Amazon).

This coming week will be a busy baking week in preparation for the coming weekend. I’m baking for the Bake Sale on Saturday, and will also be baking for a special graduation celebration on Sunday. It’ll be busy, but I’m excited!

On another note, a second location for the SF Food Blogger Website has been added. I will be volunteering at Kiehl’s Fillmore from 2-3pm, so come by!

    I prefer your macarons to Bouchon’s any day! They are the perfect size and texture!

    hi, my 4 year old son picked out your pistachio/chocolate macaron “lollipops” at the bake sale and he wanted to let you know they were “so good!” He especially like the chocolate part. 😉
