Three days in a row in my kitchen has to be some sort of record. (Correction: Three days in a row cooking in my kitchen has to be some sort of record.) This record setting might come as a shock to some folks, because I think there’s an idea out there that I cook all the time. Like I’m just baking and cooking and sewing over here at the homestead like Ma Ingalls in the flesh. Not so. I love being in the kitchen, but I also love running, reading, walks with my husband, drinking coffee, shopping, watching Friday Night Lights……in general, things that don’t require cleaning up. All that said, at the end of the day, there is an irresistable urge to create something that people will enjoy.
And so day three came, and I was over at Smitten Kitchen…salivating. I mean, good lord, I just wanted to head for the grocery store and make everything I saw. Things like this (WTF), this (INSANE) and this (CRAZY TOWN). I knew I had to make a choice, and I had to make it fast, so I kept it *simple* and landed on the Raspberry Coconut Macaroons. I won’t include the recipe below just to force you over to SK, where you can find your own destiny……..I mean, recipe.
Just so you know, the macaroons were so easy to make, I might just give it another round and try them with cherries. Or strawberries. Bananas? Just maybe.
