    Oh my, no! Your look wonderful and they're for real too, andi. My picture is just an image from the web.. please feel free, any time at all. When I told my hubby about these he screwed his face up like a kid taking castor oil! I will definitely let him know that you actually made them and loved them! Thanks for your picture and your 5, andi!

    what could be better than combining ALL the things you love. Devilish little treat! Thanks for your warm comments on the Vichyssoise. I'm gonna have a look at yours.
