I was having a particularly bad baking weekend as the Poire D'Eve entremet I had been eyeing for the longest time turned out to be kinda "bleh".

This milk chocolate Earl Grey tea macaron holds a special place in my heart as it is the first Pierre HermĂ© recipe I have ever tried and... Continue Reading →

The last time I made this I thought the pistachio and raspberry flavours didn't really come through.
