DIY raspberry & pink peppercorn macarons

Categories   Party + Entertaining Ideas

It’s fun to mix up our DIY’s around here. From decor projects to cocktail recipes, fashion how-to’s, and a few dessert ideas, we’d say the sweet ones are usually our fave. Anything that means having your whole house smell like a sweet baked good, we are all for. And macarons, well… we’ve never met anyone that didn’t love the pretty little bites.

Yum! I love pink peppercorn and raspberry together...the sweetness of the berry and then that bite of pepper. Delish!
