I don’t usually have very high expectations of the food I make, which you’d already know if you ever accepted my dinner invitations. But this is especially true when I’m travelling – for me, being on the go usually means eating out of a crinkly bag I bought at a gas station or a shiny wrapper I picked up at the drive through.
But reader Sara and her sister-in-law Kylee pinned high hopes on their macaroons, like these from The Chocolate Hog. They’d both experienced success making the cookies before, and were tired of paying big bucks for them at the bakery. Plus, they decided these delicate delights would be the perfect snack for Kylee’s up-coming 12-hour road trip.
Sara said, “We had big plans for those cookies. They would keep her awake and alive for the whole drive.”
Sorry, Kylee. I hope you had some change for those rest stop vending machines!
