Sunday and there are blue skies with a hint of warmth.  We are in that snow drop daffodil cross over period.  The sign that we a moving into longer days and happier times.  We managed a lovely long walk from the door.   Taking in braid hill which has an amazing 360 degree view of Edinburgh and the Pentlands.

With lungs full of fresh air we made it home for some free time and I decided it was time to tackle one of the recipes that I’d pulled out of the Black box.  What is there not to like about millionaires shortbread, a biscuit covered with unctuous caramel, covered in chocolate.  Not to be deterred by my wife saying I don’t remember having that as a child…..I ploughed on.
