My 27 at 27 - an Updated List

I am updating my 27 recipes to make in my 27th year because for one, making ganache is not as challenging as I thought it would be. I wouldn't even go so far as to call it a recipe. Heating cream and pouring it over chocolate is not exactly a daunting task.. The second reason for changing the list is the fact that I am constantly bombarded with images of the beautifully dainty, colorful little cookies called French Macarons. I found a little French bakery in South Tampa and got to sample them and OH. MY. GOODNESS. They are divine! I've heard they are probably one of the hardest things to make and since the purpose of this list is to challenge myself, I will attempt to make these finicky little cookies.

Tuxedo Cake

(Okay, so no more cell phone pictures for the blog.)

I know it has been a LONG time since I drafted my 27 while 27 to challenge myself in the kitchen. A lot has happened since January and this blog has fallen by the wayside. To say that this year has been a bumpy ride would be the understatement of the century! The most difficult part has been dealing with the illness and passing of my dear aunt "Emo" in April.
