Sorry for the delay in announcing the Eat Tweet winner, but I had a hard time reaching a decision. Not to mention the fact that I had to count all the characters in each entry to make sure no more than 140 were being used. Rules are rules. But even though we had rather few entries for this contest (way to make it look like I have no readers in front of a big publisher, guys!), the entries themselves were very good. Shall we meet the contestants?
First, there was Jennifer of Palavering who was hoping to harness spring with bright yellow sun-shaped macarons. I don't know about the Netherlands, but she sure summoned some sunshine over here!

Each of these micro-recipes had their charms so, in the end, I left it up to chance. And the winner is...Louisa! Congratulations and thanks to all who played with me. As for the rest of you, I suggest you make some soup!
