There are so many types of cooking that I really give no thought to….
But maybe I should, My beautiful boy told me last night that he knew I was a real Mummy because I baked him cake…I am going to bake more lol.
So today I have made an edible gift for my Boyfriends birthday. Florentines.
I will be honest. (I always try to be.) I had never even tried a Florentine before today.
I didn’t see the point, when given a selection of sweet delights to choose from I tend to go chocolate, coffee or carrot. However I am a bit skint at the moment so I got inventive with my gifts. He loves Florentines. They are quite pricey to buy good ones so I began my experiment J
Oh..They are so easy..In fact now I have tasted one (purely to check the quality of course.) I should have made at least double…. and that was before I dipped them in chocolate.
So there you go..I am converted. If my friends are lucky the next batch will be shared around the playground.
Happy Birthday to my Love
And happy Eating to all you lovely people that take the time to read my page…
Love from Sky @ http://www.thesideplate.com
I shall post the recipe when I return from the birthday lunch…just I case you would like to try
I love Florentines…but I have never made them! I’m sure homemade must – like most things – taste so much nicer. Hmmm, Easter is approaching, maybe I will give them a go.
