Standing on the precipice of each new year, I always find myself wondering what the coming year will look like. I usually get that roller coaster stomach-flip feeling of anticipation. (Maybe you get it too?) It's exciting to me, especially considering the amazing things that happened in 2013. There were ups and downs of course, but creatively speaking, I've never been more fulfilled. For me, that's a huge deal! It's a big part of my happiness in life. So, believe me when I say that it's been my pleasure to bake for you -and with you- this past year.
I whipped up these pomegranate gelée spritzers in a hurry because I've spent the better part of today thinking it was December 30th. (How did that happen?) Luckily, I'd done some prep work yesterday and already had the macarons baked and filled. I used a combination of pomegranate juice and sparkling white wine for the spritzer gelée, and it really turned out delicious. If you don't have time (or are totally confused about what day it is- ahem.) you can short-cut these parfaits by purchasing macarons from a local bakery.
