I love making macarons! They're really not hard, and they make a great statement on any table. Lately, I've been thinking of investing in a macron mat so that I don't have to draw any more cirlces in sharpie marker on parchment paper. Has anyone bought one of these, and do they work? The reviews on Amazon are so mixed.
I am a college student, and was recently lured by the convenience and price of instant mashed potatoes. I bought the Idahoan roasted garlic and parmesan baby reds. Has anyone tried these or other instant spuds before? I am now too scared to make them for fear they will taste horrible!
If you're looking for churros in Chicago and want to go straight to the fried source, you'll end up at Don Churro, the churro factory. They're only $1, served hot, about a foot long, and you won't have to wait forever in line for them.
