One of life's burning questions...

And no, I'm not talking about the chicken or the egg...at least, not this time. No, this question has ruined friendships, torn families apart, flung lovers to far distant corners....

Okay well, maybe not. But I have heard some seriously impassioned debates when it comes to chocolate versus vanilla!

Macarons from Paulette


My friend T-San came back from a trip to LA recently bearing macarons from Paulette Macarons. Actually I'm surprised they made it back to NY from LA (the man is a legendary eater) at all! But in any case, I was the blessed recipient of two of these fine treats, thanks to the intervention of his roommate.

And to continue the choco versus vanilla theme, I made a couple of batches of chocolate and vanilla mini madeleines this week for an order (bridal shower favors!)--there are few things cuter than mini-madeleines, if you ask me.


So--would you rather have chocolate or vanilla? My answer? Life's short. Have both. :)

Post coming up: a fabulous Japanese dinner at T&N's!

It all depends on the context.

If we're talking ice cream, I'd prefer to have vanilla if it's got flecks of real vanilla bean in it.

If we're talking cake, I'd prefer chocolate.
