Paris Baguette

Yum, stopped by Soho, Paris Baguette in Hmart yesterday. Soho has the best bon chon chicken, if you have not tried them yet, they are korean fried chicken wings that are extra crispy. The flavor is similar to a toned down general tso chicken. It’s a little sweet, tangy, garlic – y and spicy if you get the spicy kind. I also picked up some goodies from Paris Baguette, love their pastries and sweets. Most of the stuff I get are always light in flavor and texture and not extremely sweet, which I love. Here are some photos of the macarons, red velvet cupcake and cronut. The cronut isn’t the same as the original, it has more of a lemon kick to it but it’s still good. Thanks for reading, I would love for you to enjoy these goodies with me 🙂

I don’t know why this post didn’t post earlier. Anyways, last weekend my sister, her boyfriend and I stopped by New York City during our trip to Connecticut for a birthday party. It was my second time there but first time in Times Square, I loved it just love the whole city vibe of it, definitely want to go back and do more. So I had to stop by the infamous Laduree for some macarons, got some bon chon chicken and halal chicken and rice. I didn’t get a chance to get some pink berry and magnolia cupcakes, etc. Hopefully, next time! Thanks for reading!

Today’s pickup

Hello, so I had the day off today because I was having a very intense lower abdominal pain. I got it checked out last night, but the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong, so I took the day off to rest and give it time to improve. It was on and off, however wasn’t as bad as yesterday. I realized I had the day off and after laying in bed all day decided to run errands and picked up some macarons from Audabon Bakeshop, bedsheets, candles and a mug from IKEA. I was hunting down this micropattiserie because I heard it was really good and I’ve been looking for good macarons in Philly. It took me hours to find this stand because it was in a train station, and when I got there, there were only two flavors left: mung bean and lotus pear. They were pretty good, but it’s not comparable to the ones from New York. The salted caramel pudding was soooo good! I loved it. Next, I wanted to stock up on some more IKEA candles, but left with another bed sheet and a mug, however the mug was only 99cents and the sheets were half price! I got the sheet for $40. It was $80 originally and I’ve always wanted it. Alrighty, take care everyone, especially everyone on the Northeast USA (SNOWSTORM “NEMO”). Thanks for reading!

Fotn, ombre nails and macarons!

Hello, just wanted to sum up my week. I tried doing an ombre glitter well shimmery nail look, it didn’t turn out too great. I will try again next time with some real glitter nail polishes this was the shimmery kind. Also, wanted to share my face of the night, just a simple light brown eyes, a little dramatic lashes, some blush and bronzer and a nude lip. Yesterday, I was craving macarons, so picked up some goodies from Garces Trading Company and it was pretty good! My favorite was the peanut butter and jelly surprisingly, the flavor was actually very light and fluffy, so good! And also my lunch from today at Panera Bread, loveee the caramel latte! Thanks for reading, take care!

Macarons driving me crazy

Image

Ever since I discovered macarons, I’ve been obsessed and ever since I’ve tried to bake them myself I’ve been obsessed over getting it right. Im the type of person to like to make things myself. If I see something I like, I usually llike to try and replicate it myself at home because one it saves money and two just because Im a hands on person. Idk. So like I mentioned yesterday I wanted to test out my new mixer and make some macarons and I did. The mixer did an okay job, but it’s not the best. I noticed it only mixes to the side so I had to keep stopping it and scrape everything to one side so that it can mix it better. I also bought these air bake trays from Target and they were okay I thikn itll be better if I get the other brands from I forget where but it cost more so probably works better. The one from target wasn’t really leveled so my cookies werent rising evenly most were tilting. Anyways, I gotta say this is my best one yet. I still have to work on it and it’s a work in progress, but Im so proud that I used the french meringue method and manage to make it actually look like macarons lols. Just wanted to share it. Also this morning I picked up some bagels from Manhattan bagels for the house. Theyre my favorite bagels and the cream cheese are so good especially the honey almond. I’m in love with it, it would go great with some wine ;). Alrighty thanks for reading!

Morning!

Hello, I had my mind set on getting back on track with my healthy life style and weight loss, but I couldn’t help it, they had macarons at work ;(. Tomorrow, for sure..lols. I also got an iced chai latte with skim milk yum. I also skipped the gym because I picked up some more wii games today and ended up staying in and playing most of it with my baby brother, I am loving Mario Kart. I’ve always loved Super mario bros. Earlier, I was craving green tea latte, so I just made a so called latte art for fun lols. Alrighty, thanks for reading!

Macaron Challenge

Hello, whoever has tried making Parisian macarons know that  it’s not a piece of cake ;). Well, for some, maybe, but if you’re not a baker, you might not do so well. I don’t like baking like that because it’s too precise, I like to eyeball. I’ve been trying out many different recipes trying to perfect my macarons, even the italian meringue method is much more easier because it’s harder to mess up, however I just get too nervous because I think I’ll mess up the sugar syrup stage involving a candy thermometer. Anywho, this is my third attempt. I did improve and I used the french meringue method, which I dread because it’s so easy to mess up. However, I still have to work on it because the “feet” isn’t perfect, but they always taste great. I decided to make pumpkin spice with lemon butter cream and pumpkin spice. The rest of the photos are from the rest of the other days of food and desserts I made and my dinner date with my cousin down town Philly and lastly my cutie pie Princess, she loves sleeping under the Christmas tree (and yes, I still haven’t taken it down yet lols). Alrighty, thanks for reading, good night!

Hello, so today didn’t go very well for me. I had some bad news and this morning I hit the curb of a sidewalk when a big truck was going pass me on a very small street. I was hoping it would be okay, but I realized that a chunk of the sidewall teared off showing some threads. I am having a mini heart attack because the person who “changed” it for me left it and said that it should be okay. I don’t know…here is a picture. Also I decided to try and make spam musubi today yum! And the highlight of today were my free espresso from Panera Bread and Peppermint Macarons, well the macarons were from Trader Joes yum! Thanks for reading.
