OK, so how did it get to be #CookBlogShare wk 51 already! It was Easter that Kirsty first asked me to co-host #CookBlogShare along with Monika and Eb and it seems like no time at all. I have so enjoyed being part of such a friendly, supportive blogging community. Thank you for making it so special.
Needless to say with Christmas day less than a week away it has been a really busy time here at Recipes Made Easy. I have been cooking Christmas dinners for more years than I care to remember so this year I decided to share some of my recipes for the main event.
So do check out my recipes for Traditional Roast Turkey, Chestnut and sausagemeat Stuffing and Sage and Onion Stuffing. If you need a special vegetarian dish then why not try my Roasted Spiced Carrot and Feta Strudels. Later in the week, I shall be posting my Christmas day countdown.
Of course, I have been doing plenty of baking over the past few weeks and it is not too late to do a bit of last minute baking yourself especially for those lucky enough not to have to worry about cooking on the day. So for this weeks round up I have chosen five treats that you can make before now and the big day.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to try your hand at my giveaway for your chance to win a subscription box from Le Petit Ballon wines.
These Santa Cupcakes from Only Crumbs Remain are simply adorable, so I have to include them. Angela has included a really handy how-to video to show you how to make them.
Jammy Star Biscuits
These Jammy Star Biscuits from The Veg Space are so pretty and very festive. Kate has made them dairy-free so they would suit anyone who cannot have dairy products but you could make them with butter if you wanted to.
Almondy Mince Pie
These melt in the mouth Almondy Mince Pies from Jo’s Kitchen Larder would be hard to resist, assuming you haven’t already overindulged on the mince pie front. Is that possible?
Mincemeat Festive Wreath
Jenny from Mummy Mishaps hosts a Bake of the Week Linky and she shared this recipe for a Mincemeat Festive Wreath. I love all things bread based both sweet and savoury, so this is right up my street and I am hoping I find time to make one this week.
Traditional Egg Nog
And if you need something to wash all these wonderful bakes down why not try Jess Cantoni’s Traditional Egg Nog.
