#CookBlogShare 8

So it is finally here... Spring that is. I know the weather has very conflicting ideas but the signs are everywhere... The park is dotted with daffodils and snowdrops, the trees are covered in buds waiting to burst into bloom and I am filled with hope that soon we can leave the house without hats, scarves, gloves and an extra pair of socks! And speaking of Spring I hope you will enter the Square Snaps  #SpringSquareSnaps competition on Instagram!

This weeks #CookBlogShare round up brings together a huge variety of recipes from all over the world – take a look at the highlighted entries...
1. Posh beans on toast? Yes please Laura of a Girl & Her Home.
2. Tangerine sesame chicken from the Not So Creative Cook definitely joins my recipe bucket list.
3. Kerry has found my kryptonite and it is Reese's cups... here turned into peanut butter and chocolate rice crispies bars.
4. Gluten-free Toblerone brownies that make me weak at the knees – via Kate of Gluten Free Alchemist.

Capture spring: Square Snaps competition

Capture spring: Square Snaps competition

I grew up in the pre-digital, pre-selfie days. Back then you snapped a photo with your camera then you had to wait at least 24 hours to see the result – unless you had a Polaroid camera that is. In college, I even had my own little darkroom in the cellar of my rented flat where I developed and printed black and white masterpieces – well, they were in my eyes... I was quite intimately acquainted with most of my photographs – framing my favourite prints, creating photo albums and pinning them on my pin board above my desk – an actual Pinterest board, imagine that!

These days I take literally hundreds of digital photographs every week (admittedly most of them are food!) but I never get them printed. To my shame I still have photographs of my children as babies, Christmas celebrations and holiday snaps that I haven't even sorted through yet. So I was delighted to try Square Snaps – a London-based company that quickly and easily makes your digital snaps a tactile reality. You can upload from Instagram or from your computer and the prints come in a variety of fun sizes or even postcards and as they offer worldwide delivery you can surprise family and friends around the globe.
