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!

Oreo Waffles are the BEST!

There are all kinds of different ways to make an Oreo Waffle and I’m here to tell you that they are the best.  Especially if you dress them up the way I like to do mine, here in this recipe.  And just so you know, this isn’t as much of a recipe as it is an ingredients list of things to buy with an instructional video that shows you how I like to do it.  So if you’re an Oreo Cookie fan and you love Waffles, you better check this out because it is easy, delicious and fun to make.

Oreo Waffles are Easy

This is a very simple way to make Oreo Waffles without having to make them from scratch.  I think a lot of people like to just buy a pre made Waffle mix to make it easier so they can just add the minimal ingredients, anyway.  But, if you’ve got a favorite homemade recipe you want to stick with, be my guest.  And once you get that all whipped up, all you’ve gotta do is add some crushed Oreo Cookies.  It makes a real fun addition to a normally plain and basic waffle.  Then I like to slap some Vanilla Frosting in between two waffles, just like a cookie, and add my Homemade Berry Syrup and whip cream.
