Hey everybody! One of my recent food obsessions from this past year has been macarons! They're these little French meringue-based confections. They come in a wide assortment of colors and flavors, and are sweet and delicious. The shells are crunchy (think communion bread), while the inside is chewy or jam-like. Macarons are a favorite little splurge of mine, since the tricky baking process makes them pretty expensive. I purchased macarons from Ladurée, a famous pastry shop based in France. Since the macarons are so pretty, naturally I took lots of photos.

The macarons did not disappoint, and I'll certainly go back to Ladurée for a rare treat. :)
