Chocolate Mint Macarons

I have NEVER liked Macarons, I admit it. I just didn’t GET them… until last month. I FINALLY had a GOOD macaron and now I’m in love. When we decided to make recipes for National Chocolate Mint Day for our Celebrating Food round up this month I knew JUST what I wanted to make!

Pine Tree Sugar cookies – Frozen Party Foods

I recently spoke at a local conference for people who love pinterst!  One of the classes I taught was Frozen themed Party foods.  Because of another instructor missing a flight the class times got changed around and I actually taught earlier in the day than I was scheduled.  The class went fine, but I was thrown off the rest of the day, and when the time came for my original class time I went by to see if anyone was there for Frozen foods that might want to ask me questions.

The only one who left upset was a sweet 3 year old girl!  I felt TERRIBLE!  I ran to the back to see what I had left and all that was there (out of all the foods I had made) were these snow covered pine tree cookies!  I gave her two and while I still felt bad at least she got something!

These Pine Tree sugar cookies are easy to make and are perfect for your Frozen birthday party foods

Coconut Macaroons

The first time my mom came home from Europe she brought a new favorite treat, a Bounty Bar.  She loved it because it was like Mounds bars, but in milk chocolate instead of dark (I prefer the dark chocolate).  But since she can’t rush off to Europe every time she craves one I set out to make a good substitute!

Brown Butter Madeleines

You guys know I like pretty food, right? So I just HAD to try Madeleines the first time I saw them! More cake like than cookie like, but small and bitesized? LOVE!  I have tried many recipes over the years and some are terrific and some… fall flat.  I really need to make and share more of my favorite recipes but for today we’ll start with these Brown Butter Madeleines.

I didn't try madeleines until I was an adult, a cake style of cookie they are so pretty and dipped in chocolate for added sweetness
