OOO this week or I should say OOK (out of the kitchen) because I am traveling for work. So, I am reading @piesandtacos Macaron School and pretty excited about it. The #macaron is a world famous cookie known for just how challenging it is AND just how vibrant. In my day job, I work with folks who invent colorful solutions that make #color like this possible! This week, I get to finally meet some of these people since our acquisition went through last summer. And so, it’s perfect airplane reading to get me into a colorful, excited mood and share the joy of in person interaction with these colleagues. Also, I wore crocs for the occasion. #bakersofinstagram

I donated $200 to United Help Ukraine in lieu of a bake sale with proceeds. As much as I would have loved to get new folks to try my cookies and support my side business, this week was super tough. A lot of folks in the household got sick, and my primary job was crazy busy. I overcommitted myself and so I had to check this one off the list.

Maybe it’s not the best I could have done, but I am choosing to say no, in an effort to not overwhelm myself. At the same time, I have donated to a worthwhile charity, and please join me in doing so.

Like many of you, I am moved by what’s going on in the Ukraine and want to help. With even a small donation of $5-10, we can make a difference.

If you’re a member of the Tribute Community and make a donation, please stop by my house on March 26 (garage sale day) and pick up a blue and yellow macaron on me. Pm me for address.

A tale of two cakes.

One is a wedding cake and the other a German chocolate cake.

While my in laws were in town, I had some extra time to bake. ❤️ pretty grateful!

The news is consuming me. I feel silly baking to show my support, because #ukraine needs more than a flag colored #macaron, but here I am doing it anyway. Why? Because every time we think of the people there, donate money to worthy charities, pray, and call on our elected officials to act, we are helping. #bakersforukraine 🇺🇦

Improving at #macaron making. Like I tell my kids, everything takes practice. While some folks possess innate talent, most of us work hard to get there. Feeling frustrated by these difficult cookies is such a useful feeling to propel progress. #bakersofinstagram #twinmomplusone

Oh hey, I am Meli. I recently moved to TX with my family. I am a marketer by day and avid #baker and assistant #gardener in my free time. My husband and I are finding our joy as we settle our family of twins plus one. We have some tough challenges with not a lot of backyard, but we will be doing all kinds of vertical gardening and greening up our space. We also will be finding more home baking experiments and making our #creative kitchen a fun explorative space. #twinmom

New year, new projects. Trying to teach the kids what we need to grow. How can we keep it fun, and well, affordable? We picked up some #amaryllis bulbs on sale just after Christmas. Our goal is to find the flower as we get closer to spring (and when this Covid mess subsides). Kind of an inspirational flower for our family. #gardening #twinmom #stayathomedad

Another shot of my take on a cottage baker friendly #chocolatetart, going to call this one a #brownie tart. The concept is inspired by @sisterpiedetroit and flavors by @tartinebakery. #kitchencreations #bakersofinstagram #homebaking

Truth be told I love a #chocolatetart, with my favorite being the @tartinebakery recipe. However, I can’t sell the thing as a cottage baker. So, I found a @sisterpiedetroit recipe for #chocolate #coconut #pie and decided to blend the two. Nix the pie crust for tart crust, skip the coconut for orange zest, and add some cardamom. It’s not as attractive as a flawless tart, but nothing a ganache can’t fix!

We got Meli’s macarons yesterday and they were delicious and beautiful! Mixed green and yellow swirls with chocolate filling! My daughter and grandson loved them!
Wow everything looks good.
Great idea!
