Happy National Macaroon Day!

Today is National Macaroon Day in the United Sates.
Living in San Jose, California, I couldn’t refrain myself from making some French Parisian Macaroons to celebrate the day!

First, I made with my own hands and love the dough with egg whites, sugar and almond powder.

Then, I cooked the macaroons in the oven and magically, the famous little bumps at the bottom appeared!

Then, I simply made a vanilla bean custard to stuff them with some yummy flavor.

Oh! And I stuffed some of the Parisian Macaroons with raspberry jam too.

Then I released my French Parisian Macaroons Kitchen Poster at the store.

Geraldine Adams' Giveaway: French herbs 8x10 Fine Art Print

I made this 8×10 print showcasing 6 hand drawn illustrations of herbs in a retro French style with their names displayed in both French and English.
The herbs are the most commonly used herbs in contemporary French cuisine: chives, dill, thyme, cilantro, basil and rosemary.
I was inspired by vintage French school posters. I added the English translation so you can learn some French, too, voilà!
I printed this illustration myself on archival acid free paper with bright pigment inks. My signature is on the front.
