sm-assorted2

Did you know that there is a National Macaron Day? Technically, it was yesterday, but if you’ve ever indulged in a French Macaron (not it’s coconutty cousin, the macarOOn), then you will probably agree that it deserves more than a day. In honor of that, I’m declaring a week of Macaron obsession, and who better to feature on iEG Crush than the creator of the almighty VEGAN macaron, Sweet Maresa?! Continue reading

Although I love anything and everything sweet, I couldn’t resist the savory and spicy delicious of the barbecue seasoning. Continue reading
