“Voulec vous coucher avec moi ce soir”
-Labelle (Song : Lady Marmalade)
Oh man! This song is as old as me, literally! Yes, I occasionally do enjoy a good oldie, because I’m an oldie myself. Those were the days when people record songs with their real voices instead of being digitally enhanced. Which is why we see a lot of artistes these days, who sound great in the record but horrible when they are live on stage.
I also enjoy the quite recent version of Lady Marmalade done for the movie Moulin Rouge. And I do solely for only one reason. Christina Aguilera! What a voice! Love that girl!
FRANCE!! Paris, Eiffel Tower,River Seine, Champs-Élysées, Notre Dame, Louvre and of course French Macaroons!
I have been wanting to make these for quite some time. I’ve heard stories about how difficult it is to make macaroons. Must do it properly, the temperature and humidity of the kitchen must be just right, blah blah blah. Sacrè bleu! Why make it so difficult? Au contraire, these turned out fine in my “anything goes” kitchen.
If you Google images of macaroons, you will see gorgeous displays of them, all perfectly uniform-sized. Mine are not. Of course they are not, they are homemade! Some have cracks, some bigger than others. There is no need for me to make them as beautiful as the professionally made ones because I’m not baking to impress anyone. That’s the beauty of cooking and baking at home. Absolutely no pressure to make them perfect.
And finally, the pièce de résistance, I chose chocolate ganache for the filling. So so good! I will definitely make this again. Manifique! Délicieux!
