The Chef happily slaved away in the kitchen today so that this neglected blog could get a fresh post of sweetness. He pulled out his mother’s favorite recipes–a strawberry pretzel salad dessert and the ever-so-coveted brownie toffee bars. They’re only seen at Christmas time around these parts. Though I believe the Coasties he cooks for might see them at least monthly. Can’t be for sure though. The leftovers never seem to make their way home.
Then out of the wild blue yonder he unexpectedly whips up an almond macaron batter! Without hesitation I ran to the cupboard, shuffled around in the top cabinet behind what remains of my last few boxes of Twinings Thé Vanille to find my dear Ladurée Marie Antoinette tea. He knew all along what he was going to make. A pastel aqua blue cookie with a perfectly perfumed tea infused buttercream… my heart melted. He seriously knows how to read my mind before I even know what I’m thinking.
So without further ado… servez-vous to the sweetness of this Sunday.
