And not one of them’s turkey.

First up, Wild Mince Pies.

5 (Easy But Life Changing) Recipes To Make This Christmas - Mince pies!

None of those shop bought ones that fall apart in your hand.

Buttery, flakey, still warm from the oven, oozing all over the place, proper mince pies.

Not nearly as tricky as you might think!


Baked Camembert in croissant dough?! I'M GOING IN!

Sweet Baby Jesus… what is that?


Sweet Baby Cheesus.

Camembert baked in a croissant shell.

Fiendish, I know. You truly have not lived until you’ve given this one a go!

And as we all know, calories don’t count at Christmas.

With that in mind, allow me to introduce you to this beast of a dish…

5 (Easy But Life Changing) Recipes To Make This Christmas - FERRERO ROCHER CHEESECAKE!

Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake.

No baking, as spectacularly easy as it is spectacularly impressive.

Quite a nice alternative to Christmas pudding, if you’re looking for one.

Though of course, you might need something a little stronger to soften the blows of little Johnny and his new drum set.

Wild Mushroom & Gruyère Egg Baskets, as easy to make a dozen as it is to make one.

Perfect for feeding a hungry army of guests, or just snuggling up in your pjs with.

No washing up, either!

Then of course there’s the main event, be sure to eat a sprout or two. And if you want something to do with the leftovers, give these a go.

  • I have convinced my family to do an Annual Christmas Talent Show. Last year my husband and I Interpretive Danced to “You and I” by Ingrid Michelson. My sister and I re-did childhood choreography to Brittany Spears, “You Drive Me Crazy”. This year my husband and I are memorizing and acting out “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. I highly recommend Christmas Talent Shows. Makes for wonderful laughs and memories. Merry Christmas!


  • The egg baskets look incredible! Anything with carbs and cheese is a winner in my heart! My mom always makes rum balls for the holidays so I plan on eating my fair share of them this weekend!
