Is Spring here?

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!

Hurrah.... hello Frome!

We're so excited to be attending this popular market on the 1st Sunday from March on wards. From fine artisan food to flea market finds and small producers lining St Catherine hill in this scenic market town.  Come down and find us on Sunday 2nd March and say hello!

For some photo's of this event and to find out how we got on take a look here

Nigel Slater - a secret marmalade lover too!

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.
