Green Tea Macarons

I tried macarons again on Saturday since I still have some egg whites. I added one teaspoon of green tea to the recipe which I had previously. Somehow, something is amiss. The feet didn't really turn up, and it was very vey soft and almost break when not handled properly. However, the taste was really good, except a bit too sweet. I must've forgotten to reduce the sugar! :p


These were just a few better ones, the rest just cracked like nobody's business!!


I am very honoured to be tagged by Happy Home Baking. I need to provide '7 random facts about myself' meme. This is my sharable list:

1. I have always love baking and cooking, though the former is my first & endless love.
2. I wanted to take up "Home Econs" when I was in Sec One, but my mum made me take "Technical". Desperate, I joined the Home Econs Club when I was in Sec Three, and became the Chairman when I was in Sec Four.
3. When I was in Sec. Two, I went to my girlfriend's house to cook our first dish - "Gong Pao Ji Ding" (Dried Chilli with Diced Chicken)!
4. I started learning driving when I was 16 years old. Took advance theory four times & failed. Gave up. After 15 years later, finally took up the courage to take the test and learn auto-car. Passed my advance theory first time, passed my practical theory first time! Driving lessons all sponsored by my beloved hubby!
5. I was very lucky to have the opportunity to stay and study in Melbourne for almost two years.
6. My first house was a 4-room Design & Build HDB at Jurong West, next to Boon Lay MRT station.
7. I bake almost everyday. If I don't bake for a few days, I will feel something is amiss.

These are the 7 bloggers that I'm passing on the meme. I hope they will have fun too!

1. Laureen at Eat & Be Happy
2. Mandy at Fresh from the Oven
3. Small Small Baker
4. Rei at All That Matters
5. Gina at Taste of Time
6. Amanda at Held by Love, Baked from Scratch
7. Anne at Simply Anne's

Here are the rules for tagging:
Link to my blog (tagger) on your blog.
1. Give seven facts about yourself.
2. Tag another seven bloggers by leaving a comment on their blogs and letting them know they were tagged and listing them (and their blogs) on your blog.

Hi Grace,
I know it's not easy to make macarons. This batch of green teas didn't turn out that well too! It didn't grow feet, but the taste was quite good though. Actually, for macarons, even if it didn't turn out like Pierre Hermes', as long as it has ground almonds & meringue, it's a maracon! Don't care how it looks like, as long as it is nice, then it's Macarons! Don't worry Grace, so far, I've only achieved once of that "look". The rest were...just edible & nice! ;) Just keep trying okie? Don't give up! I'm still not qualified to sell yet, but I don't mind sharing my macarons with you. :)

Hi Laureen,
You should try green tea macarons if you like green tea. I'm a fan of anything green tea. :p
Ahh...I welcome anyone who wants to help me finish up my bakings, then I can bake more! Otherwise, my baking is limited to the fridge space! Hahaha...;)
