I think I may just call this the year of coconut. Almost everything I make has some sort of coconut in it. Coconut cake, coconut granola, coconut tiramisu. Dare I say I’m going, coco-nutty?
You can’t not throw in a lame joke every once in a while.
So if you’ve never tried coconut macaroons let me just start by saying they will change your life. They are sweet but not too sweet and light but not straight up mereingue cookie light. They are a perfectly balanced cookie that is perfect for warmer weather. And look how adorable they are! They’re like little clouds of coconut awesomeness. And if you want to make them even more delectable you could always dip them in chocolate and you’ve got one of life’s greatest pleasures.
This is new to me. I’ve never ever posted a roundup before in the entire what, two or three years I’ve been blogging? But Sarah, every blog posts roundups! I know. I go against the grain. But alas, here I am. I figured that I could finally post one since I have this thing where I really like cooking with Guinness and Irish Cream. It’s a bit of an addiction really. I was actually planning on making even more recipes over spring break including the two awesome ingredients but I didn’t really take into account the fact that I’d be at SXSW this whole week. A recap will be coming your way soon, it was awesome I’ll just leave it at that for now.
It’s amazing how much life can change in 1 year. I keep looking back at what I was doing this same time last year and it seems like that was years ago! I was a completely different person doing completely different things!
For instance, all my friends were in highschool and love was my biggest priority. I was running almost 6 miles a day and hardly ate anything unhealthy except on my one cheat day. I wasn’t the closest with my family and I never spent as much time with them as I should have.
