Just a quick little post today! I wanted to tell you about our super fun bakery outing yesterday. You are probably picking up on a bit of a pattern here…I LOVE bakeries! Is there anyone who doesn’t?!!
A few months ago, my sweet sister-in-law introduced us to a fabulous bakery in downtown Ventura, not far from us, Marie Shannon Confections.
Everything was so delicious the first time we went, I have been thinking about going back ever since! And yesterday I finally had an excuse to go: one of my very best friends was in town for the day, and Mary Jeanne and I decided to introduce her to Marie Shannon’s. We basically bought out the bakery while we were there, everything just looked so good we couldn’t resist!
We had to get a few macarons, OF COURSE! The macaron flavors Marie Shannon’s had yesterday were Mocha and Salted Caramel. I must say, the macarons there are my favorite after Laduree. They are so so good! So if you live in the area and need a macaron fix, I highly recommend going to Marie Shannon’s!
We also got a Meyer lemon shortbread tart, Mexican chocolate cookie—two actually, we knew they were amazing from last time!—and a vegetable tart. The pastry on that vegetable tart was so fresh, absolutely made that morning. Literally like a homemade croissant!
If you live around Ventura, or are visiting the area, take a moment and stop by Marie Shannon Confections for a drink and a pastry. You will not be disappointed! (:
Have any of you been to Marie Shannon Confections? Are you as impressed by their baked goods as I always am??!
