Made macarons. The french meringue kind. I made chocolate shells with Godiva white chocolate liqueur/raspberry puree buttercream frosting. Good stuff. They were painful has fuck to make. I cried a little. Should have made 4 dozen with the ingredients, threw so much out I got 15 cookies. The recipes were off as far as ingredients, which after looking at the book's reviews on...

Maybe you could give me some other pointers on losing a few pounds. I'm down about 45 too, but i've stopped losing it. So i am looking for a few new ideas. I also love cooking, so i will definitely be checking out your page for some more recipes.

So, I'm new here. Finally decided to join after getting the holiday deal with the magazine. I'm still working on navigating the site, but there certainly is a lot more to do on here than just look at pretty pictures. Give me a week, I'll be on top of things. This is the only pay-site I'm subscribed to other than Flickr...
