  2. Karin I have a variation on this recipe with Amaretto liquore, let me know if you would like me to send it to you. Happy Valentines Day to you too.

  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog today because I have now found your fabulous site. I'm your newest follower (and a fellow Aussi). I see you had the wonderful Karin stop by too - another source of great inspiration.
    I've lost a treasured amarettis recipe my girlfriend gave me before she prematurely passed away so I will be happy to try this one. - it sounds good.
    Warm regards.
