Sweets From my Sweetie

My new doctor scheduled me to have my blood sugar tested last week. Bad timing, right after Valentine’s Day, when my sweetheart outdid himself by making me two batches of truffles AND macaroons! As a gift last year I gave him some flower-shaped candy molds (now is that a self-serving present, or what?), and he used them to make me these amazing chocolate truffles.

George's trufflesThe macaroons are equally luscious. If we can manage to keep from eating them all, he’s going to cover them with chocolate. Overkill, you say? I think not.

George's macaroons I’ll try to get him to reveal his recipes, though I think each batch of truffles is “one of a kind,” with him adding ingredients that strike his fancy at the moment, and I’m not sure whether he keeps track!
