  1. They look lovely, I have a pack of walnuts open at the moment, would be a good way to use them other than sneaking from the packet! :)

  13. Walnuts and sour cherries - two of my fave things.

    Unfortunately they're two of my husbands least faves.

    What a shame. This means I'd have to eat the whole batch myself! Tragic...
