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.

Powell’s Store

 

Powell's

Powell's

Last week-end, I went to the Powell’s store in Healdsburg.
It is a very cute store in a corner that sells all sorts of sweets, candies, caramels, chocolate… etc!
Their logo has an old fashion style. It is a SHOPPE and not a shop.
I also like the giant lolipops that they sell. They are very colorful.

Je suis allée ce week-end dans le magasin Powell’s à Healdsburg.
C’est un petit magasin sur un carrefour, qui vend toutes sortes de sucreries, bonbons, caramels, chocolats… etc!
Leur logo a un look ancien. C’est un “SHOPPE” et pas un “SHOP”.
J’adore aussi les sucettes géantes qu’ils vendent. Elles sont très colorées.
