Lately I've been craving pineapple like no ones business (and no I'm not preggers). I think it is a combination of the Dole Whips I had in Disney World (oh so good) and the fact that I've heard "The Pina Colada Song" no less than 5 times in the last week. Couple that with the fact that I've got my annual "beach fever" an you can probably see how pineapple would be appealing.
When spending way to much time browsing Tastespotting last weekend I came across a recipe for Pina Colada Macarons and nearly fell out of my chair. Seriously!? Tropical macarons?!? This is too much! Oh yea, and the fact that the macarons actually look a bit sandy just seals the deal. I've never tried my hand at french pastry making but now you won't be able to stop me. I predict by weeks end I'll be dining on these lovelies, listening to Jimmy Buffet and laying out in the sun in an attempt to "transport" myself somewhere tropical.
