Bastille Day - Macaron Time

I love sweets, it's no lie. One of my first tours after moving to LA was a little cupcake tasting at Vanilla Bake Shop, close by in Santa Monica. They're opening a store even closer to my house in Century City, so that's gonna rock. Even better, they post a little phrase frequently on Twitter that gets you a free baby cupcake.

Anyway. I went there and sampled. It's delicious stuff. And in honor of Bastille Day today, I think I may have to go get more macarons this afternoon in honor of the French. Célébrons!

The hazelnut and pistachio are easily my favorites.
Chocolate raspberry and vanilla bean, yes, please!
I'm now a frequent customer, despite trying to lower my sugar intake.  If you come visit me, I will take you there!
