Spring 2014 Squam Art Workshops
festivities begin today!
I am not among the merry creatives this year;
however, my dear friend Vickie is, so I made her
some coconut macaroons for her 8+ hour drive.
Each year, coconut macaroons are a highly anticipated
treat in the Rockywold Dining Room. Mine turned out
moist and flavorful, although a bit sweeter than what I
remember indulging in at Squam,
but that just means I'll have to try again...darn!
For my first attempt at the macaroons I turned to my cousin
Abigail Johnson Dodge's cookbook, Desserts 4 Today.
This is a handy book to have around because the recipes are
current, fast and include only 4 ingredients. Swoon!
Silky puddings, mouth watering cookies and creative ice creams,
toasted nuts, seasonal fruits and intriguing whipped creams -
there's definitely something for every occasion,
or none at all...which is my favorite.
Squam Lake, fellow Campers, and all that is
Squam Art Workshops,
I miss you already!
Wishing everyone there an amazingly creative,
supportive and happy time.
Enjoy the macaroons, the woods and each other.
(Especially you with the Talismouse - you know!)
