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 […]

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 […]

My Happy List #18

My Happy List #18

It’s been a shit week. 2 Weeks now actually of completely shittery. If you read my last happy list, you’ll know we’d just had a fantastic week off and a lovely trip to York. Well. Since getting back everything has gone a little wrong. I […]

Ginger Christmas Cake with Opies Foods

Ginger Christmas Cake with Opies Foods

I’ve never made a Christmas cake. I didn’t like them for a long time (nor did I like mince pies or Christmas puddings…actually I still don’t like Christmas pudding. Yuck!) so it’s not something that ever came up. My mum also makes a pretty amazing […]
