I hope everyone got through their manic Monday without a scrape :) I got some wonderful news today, my grandfather who is from Malta (small country off the coast of Sicily, off the coast of Italy), told me that my grandmother has requested that he makes some of his famous pastizzis. For those you who aren't aware of what they are, they are a savory appetizer type pastry filled with either ricotta cheese or meat with peas, and I LOVE them!!! Now not only is he going to make them from scratch (dough included), but he is going to teach me how to also :D EEEKKK, which also means my grandfather is going to make his blog debut (he won't know what that is which makes it even cuter).
So as I told you all yesterday I had this fresh coconut and didn't know what to do with it, but alas my lovely roomie Tereza suggested that I make some yummy macaroons :) This was my first attempt at them and I can confidently say that it was yet another success, I wasn't all to worried about them but with every new recipe you try there is that little voice that tells you to watch them diligently just in case, and this was no different. Now let me tell you one thing about my crazy little coconut, shaving the meat off is no easy task, it probably took me about an hour and a half, but as we enjoy our little tastes of heaven macaroons it was well worth the effort. Now lets get to the yummy recipe why don't we :)
