Ha ha! I looked them up too!
I really laughed at definition number 1. I think as far as macaroons go, it's probably the adjective, eh?:lol:
Here in the U.S., sometimes we will taste something and say, "Hmmmm....that tastes like more..." and then we'll take another bite.

In regard to macaroons, I have the best ever recipe, but it's the only one I won't share because it's my signature secret!!! Sorry about that. :blush:

Hopefully it's not just me...Had a mental picture of a giant macaroon in a humungus 4by4 dropping off her little macaroon kiddies. He he!

Sooo... U have a macaroon secret Chefpeon The mind boggles! One is intrigued ... I can only imagine... Smoked mackerel perhaps... Maybe a lightly poached egg to replace the glace cherry... Do share.
