I bought myself 2 Donna Hay's cook magazine some time ago. it was really nice, filled with awesome mouthwatering food and they seem to be simple enough that amateurs could make it.. well thats if u can find the appropriate ingredients. =P
Glutton Rabbit of Pearl of the Orientis the host for #2 and she set the theme, Macaroons.. Macaroons is basically made from sugar, eggwhite and desiccated coconut. I'm not really a coconut person, but i did a few of macaroons over the weekend. it's pretty easy, there's no need of mixer, or ... blender or what.. just a big bowl, and a spatula... and of course the oven and baking trays.
So, the original recipe was a Lime Macaroon. This's made by Glutton Rabbit
so for me, i made 3 types of macaroons... i made the mixture of desiccated coconut, sugar and egg whites.. divided into 3 and...
The first one, is Chocolate Macaroons.
i baked the plain macaroons, then poured some chocolate ganache (leftover from Temptation Oreo) and waited for it to melt... it's really nice, cause the chocolate melted over the desiccated coconut... leaving it not so dry... which was good..
The second type, Cherry Macaroons!
and the third, Cinnamon honey Macaroons
i dint quite measure the amount of cinnamon i put in... i was just ... "open cap, pour some, smell good, ok" type of thingy.. u know.. ehhehe..i added the honey after it's baked..
this macaroon, however, was a bit dry..
alright.. so, there goes my Hay Hay It's Donna Day #2 entry..
Glutton Rabbit will do a round-up after 24th.. so visit her page, and vote!!
