The power of a good macaroon

When it's impossibly cold and bitter outside, I like to pretend that it's April. In Paris.

If I have a couple macaroons, it usually helps. Especially if they're springtime flavors like rosewater lychee or passion fruit from Kee's.

The rosewater lychee is so powdery sweet and evocative, it will make you feel like a French princess. Maybe even Carla Bruni.

The passion fruit is actually so bright and fruity, it will take you to a balmy tropical place. Say, Martinique. C'est vrai!

These look so good - there must be something like these somewhere in Mpls. If only it would warm up a bit, I'd go on a macaroon hunt . . .
