Macarons 101 | Macaron vs Macaroon

What's so ironic about the posting of this recipe was that I literally had to talk someone into believing that macarons and macaroons were two totally different cookies - that same morning. This is a constant battle. But honestly it makes sense. Macarons literally just blew up out of nowhere and came with all of their glory into our dessert world. While both cookies are totally different...I mean completely different, some still get the names confused. Here's where I come in, and I'm happy to do so. So let's get into it shall we?
