Macaron anyone?

Terri Reed here talking today about Macarons.  I recently discovered these French confections.  I would never have guessed how much I like them.  This photo is from a local restaurant here in the Portland Oregon area. I ended up taking home six of the flavors. I'm NOT going to eat them in one sitting.  Really, I'm not. :-) and if I keep saying that, maybe I won't.  But I'm on deadline so maybe I will. I picked a few new ones to try (coffee, raspberry, cherry, and blueberry) though Salted Caramel is my favorite, and I do enjoy the Almond and the Lemon as well.  Have you tried a Macaron?
Do you have a favorite flavor?

Out Now in a Store Near YOU!
When a mysterious toxin threatens lives and livelihoods near the border between the U.S. and Canada, Dr. Tessa Cleary is called to trace the source. But when the no-nonsense doctor is forced to work with border patrol agent Jeff Steele, she finds the lone wolf's dedication to his job—and country—chipping away at the walls around her heart. Just as Tessa and Jeff are about to uncover the toxin's deadly source, armed thugs kidnap them in the forest. Now they must trust each other to survive before time runs out for everyone.

Hi Terri, I hope all is well and so excited for your new book. I've never had a Macaron but they do look good. Maybe I'll get to try one now that I know about them.

The macarons look wonderful. My weakness are empanadas, fruit filled. My aunt used to make such wonderful ones.

Jackie Smith said...

MMM those macarons look delicious...hope I can find them somewhere!!
Can't wait to read your new book!

Rita Wray said...

I'll take one of those macarons, thank you.

Terri Reed said...

Jennifer, definitely try one. There gluten free too!

Terri Reed said...

Leann, I don't think I've had an empanada. Sounds yummy.

Jackie, macarons seem to be pipping up at a lot of bakeries.

Rita, I'm sending you a cyber macaron!

I have never had a macaron, but I have found them in many little shops here in Arizona. One of these days I will give in but until I tame the waistline they will have to wait. For now I am staying marginally satisfied with frozen cotton candy grapes. If you like cotton candy, you should give them a try.

I've never heard of frozen cotton candy grapes. I'll have to look for them. Thanks
