I Got 99 Problems And Baking Is One Of Them

Yes I know what you are thinking; why the living hell did you call your blog Jeans&Macaroons if you do not know how to bake?

Well, to make a long story short; I hated to bake the sweets, but I loved to eat the sweets - and still do.

Through the years I have wanted to make pancakes, chocolate cookies, and even bread because I got a recipe in my school.. I did try it with my friends at home, and it did not end well.
So one day I build up the courage to make a simple cake, and also take the following cleaning, which I might add, was the hardest one to overcome.
I then ended up with a lovely tasty cake and my self-confidence had never seen better days. The following day I made another one and fail hardly, but I think the point is clear; Think - try, fail - try again, fail - try again again, success. 
So now I can bake, and it only made sense to make some macaroons.
My friend Karoline and I made these delicious chocolate macaroons, and I most say I am proud of the result. The fact that the macaroon batter was already ready to mix up does not really count, right?

As and old quote says; As long as the food taste good, the world is a happy place. 
If you think I have turned into one of those crazy baking loving girls, you are completely wrong. As the tittle says; I Got 99 problems and baking is - still - one of them.
