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

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 […]

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 […]

Gingerbread Snowflakes

Gingerbread Snowflakes

We love gingerbread. We make it every Christmas without fail, and even make some for other people as gifts. It’s the first thing I remember The Boy and me making together, and at the time I was a single mum with no money, it was […]

Christmas Gingerbread

Me and The Boy have been making gingerbread for years. This Christmas to save a little money, we’ve decided to make some of our gifts. Gingerbread was the first thing to try. Because obviously, we need to experiment a little first, make sure it’s nice, […]
