Last week a friend and I went to the VIKING cooking school for a lesson on baking the French cookie called Macarons. We both had a lot of fun. So being JANE - yep - I came running home and had to bake a batch all by myself following the instructions of our cranky teacher Linda.
I was not too happy with the results. I think my macarons tasted good, it's just that they didn't look the way I wanted them to. They were a batch in the color green.
So I waited a day and tried again! This time I made up MY OWN RULES! Yes indeedy - and I was THRILLED with my results. These are macarons in purple.
Not to change the subject - but I am. Tomorrow my girl friend is taking me and another friend to the taping of the NATE BERKUS show. I sort of know who he is - Oprah made blah blah blah. So I turned on the TV at the gym and there Nate was coming on! Apparently the audience gives this dude a standing ovation for just walking through the door! We didn't do this for Martha when we went to see her show being filmed. I feel obligated to stand up tomorrow, but it's not because I want to - just so you know!
On that note - the SPRING 2012 line is in the works! We're both so excited ALREADY! We've got a line of cotton madras bows to knock your socks off! Get ready--
I'll be back at you with photos from Nate's show! Somehow I have to figure out how to get IN FRONT of the camera for my 15 minutes of fame instead of sitting in TV audiences!
