Leftover Turkey Chilli

Leftover Turkey Chilli

Chilli Chilli is one of our favourite meals. The kids love it, as long as it’s not too spicy, and me and husband especially love having the leftovers on a jacket potato the day after. That’s probably the best thing about chilli. You can make […]

Leftover Turkey Korma

Leftover Turkey Korma

Confession, for the last few years, we’ve had Christmas dinner with Jim’s parents. So, we’re not left with loads of turkey. We do sometimes bring some home, but it’s literally enough for sandwiches the next day. But, I remember when I was younger having to […]

After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies

After Eights are one of those things that aren’t really remotely christmasy. But, we eat them at Christmas, and don’t really have them the rest of the time, so they’ve become a Christmas food. To be fair, you could argue that this is true of […]

Christmas Rocky Road

Christmas Rocky Road

I love any kind of Rocky Road. It’s basically a fancy pimped up biscuit, and I’ve got so much time for that. Christmas is kind of the perfect time for it too, because there’s loads of yummy sweets and chocolates everywhere for you to throw […]

Festive Mince and Marzipan Rolls

Festive Mince and Marzipan Rolls

I love Christmas. I’m a bit of a Christmas geek. I mean, not in a crazy tree up in October kind of way. I start a bit of shopping and baking in November, but we don’t really get festive until December. Christmas We put our […]

Christmas Cookies

Christmas Cookies

We’ve been so bad at Christmas baking this year. I’ve been creating bits and bobs, but me and Michael haven’t really done a proper fun baking day that he can help with. So, we decided to make some Christmas Cookies. They are basically the same […]

The Things I Love About Christmas

The Things I Love About Christmas

Last year I wrote a list of my favourite things about Christmas. A few of those things may well appear on this list too. Then next year, I’ll do it again. I basically love writing about Christmas! Looking at last year’s list made me realise […]

My Favourite Christmas Recipes

My Favourite Christmas Recipes

I love Christmas. I’m one of those people that gets more excited than the kids. I spend weeks shopping, I struggle to sleep, and I’m out of bed waking everyone else up at 5 am. I get this from my mum, who is also a […]

Our Visit to Wentworth Garden Centre

Our Visit to Wentworth Garden Centre

It was our wedding anniversary last month. We spent it at Wentworth Garden Centre. When I was younger, my mum and dad used to take me to garden centres at the weekend, and I absolutely hated them. Honestly, I just couldn’t see the excitement. I’d […]

Classic Christmas Stollen

Classic Christmas Stollen

I’d never had Stollen until a few years ago. I spent my childhood absolutely convinced that I didn’t like marzipan, what a fool I was! So, Classic Christmas Stollen isn’t something that had ever appealed to me. I don’t hugely like Christmas food either. It’s […]
