Oh, what a beautiful morning!

Happy Friday. I’m sitting here dreaming of Macaroons and listening to Amy Winehouse as I contemplate my plans for the day.

Did you know it’s National Macaroon Day?



According to HolidayInsights.comNational Macaroon Day honors the Macaroon, a flourless cookie. It is popular among the Jewish community, especially during Passover, when Jews can not cook with flour. But, the popularity of the Macaroon doesn’t stop there. It is also enjoyed around the world.

Macaroons are made from ground nuts and leavened egg whites. Coconut and potato starch is common in Macaroon recipes. Macaroons were believed to have been first made in an Italian monastery in 1792. While monks are well known for their vows of silence, they just couldn’t keep quiet about this tasty treat.

Celebrate National Macaroon Day by baking and eating macaroons. If your schedule is tight today, stop by a bakery and select some for both work and for home.

I love this crazy holiday website. They have recipes for Macaroons too! There’s a weird holiday for just about every day of the year.

Who doesn’t like a good cookie while they’re writing? They’re particularly fun when you’re writing a steamy scene. 

Enjoy the day, have a beautiful weekend and eat a Macaroon!
