Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Yeah, me neither, until I saw it recently on several other blogs. As always, I am in the dark about these things. There needs to be a centralized database of food holidays and celebrations for us poor, unaware bloggers. It does make a lot of sense for July to be Ice Cream Month – I know I certainly eat my weight in ice cream during the hot months of July and August. But I am not presenting you with a recipe for ice cream. And I am sharing this recipe on Mad About Macarons as a guest post as well
If you haven’t heard about Mad About Macarons, I don’t know what rock you’ve been hiding under. It is the name of both a cookbook and a blog written by Jill Colonna, a Scot living in France, having married a Frenchman (by the name of Antoine…how perfect is that???). She has tackled the world of french cooking and mastered the art of that finicky French pastry, le macaron. And written a whole cookbook devoted to them, no less!
When Jill asked if I would guest post on her blog, I was so thrilled and flattered. Not only is she an amazing cook, she is a delightful person and is incredibly supportive of her fellow bloggers, despite the fact that she could probably outcook and outbake us all. And she has an adorable Scottish accent. Well, I don’t really know about that, but she did use the term “Och” in an email to me so that counts, right? She asked that I create something based on egg yolks. Since it is National Ice Cream Month on this side of the Atlantic, it is only fitting that I created an ice cream recipe. Actually, that is purely coincidental, as I knew nothing about National Ice Cream Month until a few days ago. But I can pretend I was all uber-organized and on top of things, can’t I?
So please head on over to Mad About Macarons and check out Jill’s blog!
