Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I had never made macaroons before. I had heard people talk about them before, but I hadn’t actually had a macaroon, so I had no inclination to make them myself. Well, the stars aligned and I just happened to have all of the ingredients in my house and needed a snack for our first small group meeting. Why not? I had nothing to lose! My blog land friend, Monica, posted this recipe not too long ago so I gave it a go and I wasn’t disappointed! I was really impressed with how beautiful the cookies turned out. The cooked up a gorgeous golden brown and they looked so fancy but they were so easy! I ended up drizzling the leftover melted chocolate over the top because, really, you can never have too much chocolate.

      I haven’t made many cheesecakes, although I have my eye on this NY Cheesecake recipe over at Smitten Kitchen. Doesn’t it look dreamy?

        OH MY! i want that cheesecake! i love a good high one…the lime cheesecake didn’t come out nice and high but that was ok with me – we didn’t need all that, even though it is delicious.
