Coming Soon - Macaron Day!

Just a tiny teaser, some are calling it a harbinger of Spring -- Macaron Day 2012 -- March 20!

Hee hee, I think I shall call the little flying macaron "robin" in honor of another harbinger of Spring.

MacTweets is ramping up for a full-on celebration challenge:  Mademoiselle Macaron

Last year I missed it, so this year I propose Tuesday, March 20, a special Tatting Tea Tuesday event in honor of Macaron Day.

Celebrating the arrival of Spring by settling in with your favorite cuppa and a tasty macaron sounds like a lovely way to ring in Spring, n'est-ce pas?

Some fun macaron links:

Daily Craft: Easter Macarons

And because I am still sad, missing Gina, the Tatting Goddess, here is a macaron in honor of her Gingerbread Man:  Gingerbread Man Macarons

So mark your calendars and spread the word. Let's make March 20 a special day!

I don't have a sweet tooth but I fancy admiring all the colours and varieties I can find at the shop. The gingerbread macarons are really cute!

I found some wonderful gluten-free and egg-free recipes online. They use brown rice flour. I even found a YouTube video for making one with raw foods that only requires 4 ingredients and one of them is raw cocoa! You refrigerate and eat! I do like EASY.
