Macarons – Dana’s Bakery Review

Youtube Macaron 1

French Macarons are amazing.  In the words of Martha Stewart, “Macarons are light-as-a-feather French confections that can be assembled pulling from a mix-and-match palette of sweet fillings and bases.”  I had an opportunity, recently, to give a review of one of the best American Macaron bakery’s in the nation, Dana’s Bakery.  So unfortunately, this is not the Poor Man’s recipe for Macarons but a high recommendation of another American based business that can deliver your needs for any event; be it Weddings, Corporate Gifts or Special Occasions.

Dana’s Bakery sent me a dozen of their Macarons and they didn’t spare any expense.  I was, however, disappointed in the care of FedEx because my package was smashed in and torn on one end.  Luckily, though, it didn’t damage my order because Dana’s Bakery took extra care to package the Macarons with bubble wrap and a profession insulated thermal bag and a refrigerated Jelly pack to keep it cool during shipping.

As you’ll see in the video review below, I tried everyone of these little delicacies and I firmly believe that Dana’s Bakery certainly knows what they’re doing when it comes to Macarons.  Their flavors were off the wall delicious and I think you to will agree.  So definitely give them a try and be sure to tell them Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen sent you!

Lobster Sauce

Lobster Sauce Main Pic

If you’ve ever ordered Lobster Raviolis or pasta with a Lobster Sauce from an Italian Restaurant and they prepare it right, it truly is stunning.  It can be prepared several different ways but it usually always has cream.  You can even put roasted tomatoes in it if you’d like but I like it best prepared the way I show you in this video recipe.  There’s also a nice touch of almond in the sauce that tastes real sweet thanks to the added Amaretto.  You’ll swear you’ve died and gone to Italian Heaven.

Also, be sure to check out my Mussels Recipe down below and my Shrimp Scampi.  Both dishes are a fantastic side dish or appetizer to compliment any pasta recipe.  And if you’re interested in the Seafood Scissors I use to cut the Lobster Tails, CLICK HERE.
