Seawashed said...

They look delicious! The only macaroons I have ever had was from my favorite Paris shop/cafe owned by a couple who lived in Paris and visited several times a year. I tried several flavors and didn't like one! I wanted to like them so badly. hmph. But maybe homemade would be different.

Unknown said...

Jacqueline said...

Dearest sweet Koralee, i LOVE macaroons and i think they are sooo pretty!! Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!


wendy said...

I follow Anita too...and have been enjoying her "tours" and visits through Paris. Someplace I will probably NEVER actually get to.
NOR have I ever ate a macaroon.
With my fabulous trip to Montreal last summer (to see a blogging friend)...we didn't get a chance to get some Macaroons.
I LOVED OLD Montreal.....probably as close to Paris experience that I will get.

vintage grey said...

Ooh, these look so wonderful. Wishing you a beautiful weekend, Koralee! xo Heather

Sue said...

à la parisienne said...


Beautiful French macarons!
I'm curious as to what you used for the creamy middle of your strawberry macarons.
I made strawberry/basil macarons several months back and used strawberry jam for the middle. I'd like to make them again but want to perfect the filling. Any suggestions?


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Ahhhhh....I am so happy to see everyone visiting each other. This is so fun. Koralee, I am finally done my dear and today I took a nap and felt GOOD. Loving your photo here so much that I want to ask you dear one, may I have permission to use it in a collage I want to make for a memoire of this unforgettable party? Let me know if I may use it.

You only have about a week left of school right? I remember you saying you had just a little ways to go after me. Let me tell you, it is BLISS!!!!!!! BISOUS MON AMIE! Anita

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

Lovely to catch up with you for the Paris party and the pink strawberry macarons look divine. They look perfect and want to eat one now with my coffee. Love your quote too.

Enjoy the Paris weekend

Champagne Macarons said...

Your PINK macarons look divine.. two of my favourite things! I made them once.. although delicious, they were cracked. I'm not sure what I could have done but perhaps over beat them.
I am so happy to meet other bloggers with the same passion for Paris that I have via Anita's Parisian soiree!
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
xoxo, B

Karena said...

Koralee thank you so much for making these luscious macaroons for our journey to Paris with Anita!

millefeuilles said...

Dear Koralee,

As a fashionably late (I hope) guest at the Paris Party I simply wanted to say that your macarons are divine.

Best wishes from France,


Martina said...

Dear Kopralee, such a delicious part of Paris you've created here! I can use a bit of extra sweetness today, since, coming home from a holiday is not so easy - am still in a dreamy mood! Thank you for sharing dear one, have a super start to your week!

DolceDreams said...

I am just loving Anita's Paris party, because I am finding new friends like you ~ Everything looks divine and delicious here!
au bientot,

Victoria Sayer said...

G'day Koralee.
I have to confess that I have NO IDEA WHAT a Macaron TASTES like. In fact I do not think I have ever even SEEN a macaron for real.
BUT!...your very yummy Paris post has me utterly intrigued! Perhaps one day I will be able to savour one (or two) of these darling little 'creations'. (not too sure if they are a biscuit or a cake)
Your pictures are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!!

hi-d said...

Oh wow...I have yet to try a STRAWBERRY macarons. Your photos are dreamy.

Have a lovely week...I'm still trying to make my rounds at the Party. :)


Rebecca @ Belle Blog said...

WOW!! Those Macaroons look divine! and they are my favorite color...PINK!


Vi said...

Oh yum! I must try making them oneday. Beautiful.

Mary said...

Merci and thanks for the macarons from talented you! Mary
