Partick

Kelvin Hall I was at Kelvin Hall for a work thing today. I visited the National Library of Scotland's new site there - what an incredible place.

I started with this excellent recipe from Play Bake Smile but, as is usual for me, didn't quite have all the necessary ingredients. I'd rather not have added… Continue reading Recipe – chocolate peanut butter bliss balls
