Sssshhhh, I do believe there may be a hint of Spring around the corner? On my run today there were an abundant supply of Snowdrops and daffodils poking their head up and the very first signs of spring blossom starting to form. Just feeling the sun on your face seems to brighten everything in a day .... even our dreaded car repair bills!!! Take a look at these amazing Snowdrops we spotted the other day!

There isn't much Nigel Slater can do wrong in my eyes, in fact I'll admit it now, I have a crush on him, in purely foody terms. Even more so when I found out, like me he also loves nothing more than whiling away an afternoon making this luscious offering. At Snowdrop Cottage we await the arrival of the Seville oranges with great anticipation, for this is truly the queen of fruits when it comes to marmalade making. With Saturday Live on the radio, the children occupied and a busy husband the kitchen becomes my haven to indulge in this yearly ritual.
