The goodness of French macarons

Written by Diane. Posted in on life in France


No trip to France is complete without sampling at least a few dozen of one of the most popular sweets around. Not quite a cookie but not a candy either, macarons are about to become your new favorite sweet treat. These trendy little circles have graced the pages of bridal magazines, made cameos in shows like Gossip Girl and have even made their way to New York’s Upper East Side.

Why did we switch Dagny to a raw food diet?
