Don’t feel like clicking the link? I won. Yes folks, I did it again, yours truly won this years Brooklyn Cookie Takedown!!! Well this year, I felt I need to class the joint up a bit. Of course, I can’t make things easy on myself either, in my opinion what makes a French Macaron so alluring is all their pretty colors and flavors. Today, I’m just giving you the recipe. I know this post is getting long, but I also need to credit a two sites that helped me along in my recipe process. Between those 2 sites, plus a lot of practice and some failures I finally ended up with perfect little Macarons with feet, no cracks and no hallow shells! French Macarons + A #Giveaway! How to Enter: Red Velvet Macarons with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling #SundaySupper.

Are you ready to get romantic today? Whether you like to spend a quiet evening a home or go out for a big expensive dinner #SundaySupper has you covered for every possibility. The subject of food and romance got me thinking. What exactly makes something a romantic meal? We all know which foods that are natural aphrodisiacs, but I’m talking about what to you makes something romantic? The last few years hubby and I have stayed in for Valentine’s Day and I cooked. While I ponder, I think we can all agree on the one most romantic place to be on Valentine’s day – Paris. Getting totally into the spirit on the holiday I went red with my macarons and even attempted some hearts.

Also, my gift to you – step by step photo instructions!

We have reached the end of the Passover recipe train, with the only fitting way I know how – with a luxurious, rich, incredibly delicious flourless chocolate torte.

My good friend Carla from Chocolate Moosey is hosting #SundaySupper this week and weare bringing together Easter and Passover menus for you! No matter your holiday, #SundaySupper has you covered and I’ll be honest, despite being an “Easter” recipe there are a few that could easily cross over for Passover. Let’s talk Passover desserts and how disappointing they are – after an absolutely fabulous meal here comes dessert, dry bland cake, canned coconut macaroons (you know your family buys these), and chocolate covered matzoh. The only decent thing at the table is going to be the fresh fruit salad and chocolate jelly rings! Matzoh cake meal does not equal good cake! Nor do the boxed cake mixes! It’s time to give them up! I want you to imagine a giant, moist, light but rich truffle brownie.

You know the little crispy bits of french fries at the bottom of the pile or bits and pieces of fried chicken crust that fell off after frying.

Those things, I love them; crunchy, flavorful and when you are in my presence, all mine! For this reason, it made perfect sense to take up hosting duties for today’s #SundaySupper. I think it is pretty easy to go crunchy with entrees or snacks, so I wanted to have some fun with dessert.

Where Food Goes Beyond the Boundary of Hunger: Pixel Cookies: Link from Zelda. I like to challenge myself. And when I do, I challenge myself to the extreme. I have come across "pixel" cookies a long time ago but I never got around to actually trying it out. "Pixel" cookies are basically shortbread cookie dough, cut/pressed into strips and are painstakingly put together into a log or rectangle which is then sliced into cookies to form an image of a pix-elated picture.

I didn’t have a whole lot of time to cook, with school and all, but really wanted to impress. So, I decided to make Oreo truffles and some candy corn cupcakes.
