I don't find myself to commit to much lately. I buy running shoes and don't run or think of some brilliant idea and then it just slowly lingers into a small thought. I can gladly admit that this blog has been a constant in my life. Which is how I know that baking is here to stay. I never get sick of it or forget about it. There is so much to read about and great people to learn from. Speaking of which the blog that started this all for me is Tartlette. I don't remember how, I was probably looking for a tartlette recipe and found her on google. Her beautiful blog is home to some beautiful macaroons. Being used to coconut macaroons I finally found the time to make the French ones. They were easier than I imagined but I don't think I got it quite right. I also made some trusty brownies...can't really mess a brownie up it's chocolate either way. The recipe was from Baking with Julia and those brownies were delicious. So dense and!

I still haven't tried making macarons, yet, but Helene certainly does inspire me in much the same way she does you. I just may have to get around to trying these. So many recipes, so little time, right?

I'm glad baking has become a constant in your life! Sometimes it's a challenge to hit upon what you really enjoy doing, but when you finally find it it's amazing. :)

Tartelette is certainly inspiring! I still haven't mastered french macarons.
