Happy New Year!
Some time back, I made this yam basket with your online help and I haven't forgotten how good it was :)
I was too lazy to make it this CNY but hubby reminded me of it, so thought I would drop by and say hi !

Sinner said...

Jess : Happy Bunny Year to you too !

Tricia: Thanks. Gong Xi Fa Cai ! These macarons are very addictive. Far worse than PS3 or Wii ;) lol

TE Cook : Hi ! Thanks for dropping by. The yam ring is still our fav food. To get round the laziness, I usually make a few at one go and then freeze for later.

Dear Sinner, what perfect macarons! I have had nothing but failures in my attempts to make them. I wonder if you could kindly share your recipe/technique?

Thanks,
Claire

Sinner said...

Thanks Claire. If we didn't like the macarons so much, I too would have long given up. Took me five attempts before I got those much sought after 'feet' !
I am still at the trialling stage but once the macaron making is more consistent, I will certainly share the recipe.

Claire said...

Thanks, Sinner. I am so looking forward to your recipe, but please take your time. From experience I know your recipes totally work for me.

Cheers,
Claire

Sinner said...

Thanks Claire. Great to know the recipes works for you too ! :)

Just heard about the earthquake in Christchurch. Hope you and your family are safe.

Sinner said...

It is total devastation in Christchurch. I really feel for the residence there. We are so thankful we are in Auckland, so not affected. Thanks for your concern Tricia.

Hi Sinner,
Too bad to know about the earthquake in Christchurch but glad to know that Auckland is not affected & you & your family are safe. God Bless.

Hello! Would love to use this image as the header for my Annotation Site for a week or two. It goes perfectly! cnfnation.wordpress.com.

Thanks a bunch! I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi monapily,
I do not understand what you mean by annotation site. Can you please explain a bit more ?

Mona-pily said...

Hi! The site is called CNFNation (standing for Creative Non-Fiction Nation) and we post annotations of nonfiction books. An annotation is something like a review but more of an analysis of the book from a writer's perspective.

I've recently posted an annotation on a memoir by Shirley Jackson, who was a prolific writer in the 1950's. In her book "Life Among the Savages" she makes reference to having cookies with "sinner" written on them. I thought the image of your macaroons would be a perfect fit. Here is the link to the annotation so that you can read it. http://cnfnation.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/life-among-the-savages/

Thanks again, and love the recipes on your site!
