Rhubarberric Macarons (Guest Post for Journey Kitchen)

Rhubarb and Raspberries
Hope you guys don't mind the recent back-to-back guest posts in the past week. It wasn't my intention to have them spaced so closely, but sometimes life just happens how it does regardless of your plans ^_^. Today I'm sharing a guest post for my lovely friend Kulsum of Journey Kitchen. She's been easy to connect with from the beginning as we have quite a bit in common, including a love of Indian food and good chocolate as well as both being in school currently. Please drop by her blog to check out my Rhubarb Berry Curd Macarons plus all of Kulsum's tasty and beautiful dishes. If you're just looking to grab the printable recipe, you'll find it here.

  35. I've yet to make macaroons, but these look so beautiful, I think I'm going to have to give it a try. Plus, I'd love to have some rhubarb again. We used to grow it when I was a kid, and I don't think I've had any since then...
