Do you follow me on Facebook? If so, you may remember that I shared my good friend Meriem’s page a few days ago…

I’m trying to share the pages of some of the great blogs I love to read.  I figure, if you’re anything like me, you can’t get enough great recipes, gorgeous photography, and all the fun stories that go along with 😉

Culinary Couture is definitely a favorite of mine.  Meriem is a top notch baker.  I’m telling you- she really knows her stuff.  She makes the most gorgeous, magnificent desserts.

I recently followed along, with bated breath, while she mastered the art of making French macarons.  Girlfriend was unflinchingly steadfast in her quest.  Everything else in her life went on the back burner until she had triumphed and found success.  I so related to how she was feeling at that moment.  It’s so exhilarating when you finally nail something so challenging!

Meriem is celebrating Ramadan all month long, so she is very busy with the fasting, prayer, family, and celebration that go along with the holiday.  She asked me to guest post in her absence, and of course I am honored.
