Adventures in Macs

I’ve started making more macaron at work lately. It’s downright impossible to do there in the summer when the humidity is upwards of 90% on a daily basis. Those bitches will always deflate before forming a skin to be ready for baking. Jerks. Truth is though, aside from the humidity being a dick, macarons are […]

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Love

Yesterday felt like a cookie day. A chocolate cookie day. A chocolate sandwich cookie day. With the fluffiest of the fluffy peanut butter frosting in the middle. So I made them. The level of salt in these things, and the soft chewiness and fluffy as hell filling is just so on point. Everything about these is […]

Maple Bacon Caramel Macarons

I seemed to have a large abundance of egg whites hanging out in my fridge, and just the right amount of almond flour hiding in my cupboard. I knew it was time. Time to tackle macarons again. But what kind shall I make?!?! I still had two little bottles of yuzu juice, and thought to […]

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

I sat down to write this post and then 2 hours later realized I was purchasing some sweet patterned leggings and had watched various clips of documentaries of monkeys with unfortunate gas. Oops. I guess I’ll actually do this now. These are cookies. They’re peanut butter sandwich cookies. Because I like cookies, and I like […]

A Bunch of Things

So once again, it has been a very long time since I’ve posted anything. Even though I’ve been baking up a storm! I switched jobs once again, and am supremely happy where I am now. I think I’ll start bringing my camera to work so I can post more frequently about tasty delicious things. Omnom. […]

Toasted Almond, Chocolate Chunk, and Toffee Cookies

  Cookies! I’ve never met someone who said “I don’t like cookies”. Even if they did say it, I would know they are lying. There are far too many different kinds of cookies in this world for a person to not like at least one of them. Knowwhatimsayin’? It’s just not possible folks. It’s my usual cookie […]

TKO’s

SOMETHING IS WRONG! That picture is not of a cake…This post isn’t about cake! I can just hear the concerned whispers now… “What has happened to Tara?” “Is she feeling alright?”. But yes, folks. I am feeling quite fine! So everyone can calm down for a second, because I did make another cake (ahahaha) but […]

Making Macaron

I know I know, macarons are so two years ago. Whatever. I still like to make them (even though I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about making them…). They’re cute, okay? Just so damn cute.  And I will continue to make them forever. Today I made two batches. Regular, and ones with rice flour instead of […]

When Chocolate, Pecans, and Caramel Collide

I woke up this morning feeling awesome. It was one of those perfect sleeps. I love those, especially on days off.  I could tell it was going to be a productive day. Perfect moods can only call for one thing: baking. I made me some cookies while listening to awesome music. I love 8tracks so […]
