Carol is real food lover.  Now living on Ile-Saint-Louis in Paris, she paints Parisian dreams and manages to take you on an imagined stroll through Paris.

She does this through her imaginative and colourful monthly Paris Sketch Letters.  They celebrate all kinds of French seasonal food each month and you’ll discover that she has a particular penchant for macarons and pastries.  When your package arrives from Paris, you’ll discover all sorts of petits additions – such as ribbons, perfume testers, and business cards from Parisian cafés and shops.

    I made macaroons with almond flour and stevia! No cane sugar or powdered sugar involved! They actually turned out ok! 🙂 You have a beautiful blog! Glad I discovered it from the comments section of Paris Sketches!! 🙂
