Coconut Macaroons

Nothing thrilling to report today. I stayed up all night and then went downstairs. I baked some biscuits, cooked some scrambled eggs, and assembled a breakfast sandwich. A little salt and a little pepper on the eggs gave fabulous flavor. I also added a slice of cheese because I adore cheese! How are all of you? Going strong with your resolutions? I know that I am pushing my resolutions back until I get back to school with my independence and a true schedule. My first week is going to be busy, but hopefully it will be exciting and feel fresh. I watched the "big show" for Wizards today. It was good!

Today is a day for something that isn't super-sweet. Yes, it falls under the dessert category, but it isn't a sickeningly sweet one. I really should have made a double batch of these because me and my mom gobbled these up within a week. Oops, haha. These are easy to whip up and are done in under 30 minutes! Definitely something to think about if you are in a dessert pickle. :) This is another one of those recipes that we only dig out for Christmas, but it is versatile! I hope you all try these out.
