Macaron madness

I have been struck down, stricken, infected with Macaron Madness! For a few weeks now I have been rangling with these fussy little buggers. Getting successful, semi successful and absolute failure batches. These are the best success I've had so far...

I swear one batch tasted like roast meat! But images like these keep me questing for the perfect recipe, the perfect technique. 

So yes, I am refusing to give up. Tomorrow is another day and another batch.
