Meriel What brings you JOY? The look on a person's face when they eat something I've baked...and puppies. What is your favorite flavor Macaron? I don't have much of a sweet tooth, actually, but if I were to eat only 1 mac every day...it would be almond. (I secretly wish it was filled with straight almond paste because I could eat a whole tub of that stuff 😁) What is your favorite thing about the Holidays? "Spending quality time with family and friends," is what SHOULD be my favorite...but who am I kidding?! ALL the foodstuffs. What are you asking Santa for this year? My house to be decorated (while I'm at work😁) with all the lights and Christmas trimmings so we don't have the "Bah Humbug" house on the block.
