Tart Treats!

I LOVE Macarons! I was craving them so I decided to make a batch of yummy Orange Macaron cookie shells filled with Orange Cream. It’s like eating a creamsicle in the form of a macaron. Yum!

I will admit that there is a lot of work that goes into making this particular Macaron, so I made a little extra filling for an experiment. And what was that Experiment? An Orange Cream Tart!

What an amazing pairing! Just imagine… the orange-y tartness of the Orange Cream combined with the subtle graham shell, topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Heavenly! 😉

Fried Chicken Legs?!

Yummy Fried Chicken Legs!

A friend told me one day that there was going to be a fried chicken competition. And everyone was invited to compete for the title of Best Fried Chicken.

Well… I can make traditional fried chicken. And my fried chicken is awfully tasty. But is it the best? Probably not. I can be completely honest about that.

So what did I decide to do? Well, I decided to enter, and win that fried chicken competition. To do that though, I needed to step outside-of-the-box and created my own special ‘fried chicken’.

The final result – “Fried Chicken Legs”: Caramel cupcakes with chunks of ooey-gooey melty caramel goodness, vanilla frosting, coated in graham cracker crumbs, and topped off with white chocolate bones.

Fried Chicken Legs.. or Cupcakes?! ;)
