This is the holy grail of macaron-making: LADUREE. In Paris. 
My friend Jennifer Chang (who can be seen earlier today) brought some home for me when she was at a conference in France. Whaaaat?? I have never been to France, so to taste one of these delicate concoctions has been on my bucket list. Jen made that happen. I have the most amazing friends. So many blessings. Some very very dee-licious.
