Macaron Free Weekend

It was not my intention to skip this weekend. In fact, my baking sheets are still lined with parchment paper right now. But, when your sister asks to bake with you then cancels Sunday night at 8 p.m., you just have to forgo it for the week. Sigh

Instead of macarons, I premade some garlic bread for my mom. She absolutely loves garlic bread in the morning with coffee so once every couple of weeks, I make and freeze a batch for her.

Half a stick of butter softened
1 loaf French bread
4 cloves crushed garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Cut bread lengthwise, and spread with garlic butter.

If I were serving the bread, I’d bake it at 350°F, then I finish it off under the broiler until golden brown. But for my mom, I cut them into smaller servings.


Then I sandwich them back together.


This gets wrapped in foil and placed in a ziploc bag for freezing.


And that’s my non macaron baking weekend!
