Merry Christmas to Me: Macarons

I wrote about the fabulous Parisian Macarons here, over the summer. Pete and I basically scoured Chicago for them. And we tried them. And we (pretty much) liked them.

Also, I'm obsessed with Chronicle Books. They're a great publisher, and really, just looking at the website makes my mouth water. Not just because they have great cookbooks, but also fabulous picks from the crafting and home decor industries.

In August, I saw that someone was creating a book all about Parisian Macarons, and that it would be out in November. And I kind of forgot about it for awhile. Until two weeks ago, actually. And as I was placing a giant Christmas Amazon order, I conveniently dropped I Love Macarons into my shopping cart, too.

(I put both the Amazon link and Chronicle Books link above...it's sold out at Chronicle Books.)

PS: I'm trying the vanilla macaron/cinnamon filling recipe tonight. I'll post pictures and the turnout tomorrow!!!

I love macarons! Did you know they're selling them at Starbucks this month? And that they are now offered in the freezer section of Trader Joe's? The TJ ones are pretty decent, but only come in vanilla and chocolate.
