Hi, I'm really pressed for time this week and I want to grab my Mother's day gifts early. I was thinking of getting Macarons at the local patisserie and wondered if I bought them Thursday or Friday would they still be fresh on Sunday? Anyone?
No, they’re not the same thing. And they’re pronounced differently, too.
French Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
No lie: macarons can be fairly finicky to make, in that they might spread into uneven shapes or form dark spots on their tops -- but even if they're not as beautiful as bakery specimens, they will still be delicious. The smooth chocolate ganache filling sandwiches the light, chewy-inside, delicately-crisp-outside chocolate macarons together, for a classic French dessert you shouldn't be afraid to try making.
A good Reuben sandwich is a perfect balance of flavors and textures, and this one delivers. Good rye bread, crisped in butter, holds generous layers of Thousand Island dressing, rich corned beef or pastrami, crunchy sauerkraut, and nutty, melty Gruyère or Swiss cheese that oozes beautifully into the other ingredients.
