I'm a big fan of people who leave well-paying yet unfulfilling corporate jobs to pursue their passions. So it's a no-brainer that I'm a fan of Gesine Bullock-Prado and her mail order bakery business, Gesine Confectionary. Her rustic macaroons are the bomb, and show up at your door in the most clever, beautiful packaging. And her book and blog are real treats (pun intended).
Gesine's macaroons are the real deal. They're handmade to order from almonds, egg whites, sugar, honey, salt and natural extracts. And they're divine. I popped three of the little buggers into my mouth before heading off to my Bar Method class. I had one of the best workouts I've had in a while.
