If you say to your guests "Would you like a glass of Mulled Cider?" they will invariably say "Yes, that would be lovely."

Wreath 2011

December 13, 2011

2

Last year my efforts to make Christmas festive were a bit lacklustre as I documented in my post: ‘List for Christmas Future.’ I am working my way through my self improvements and so far I think I am doing pretty well for 2011. One of the things on my list involved making, or improving on a bought, […]

Let’s Make Christmas (Pudding)

November 14, 2011

15

I am heading down (or is it up?) to London on Friday for the ‘Let’s Make Christmas’ Blogger Gift Swap at Fortnum and Mason arranged by Vanessa Kimbell. Each year my Mum used to take me Christmas shopping in London on the train. We finished the day at the theatre watching something like West Side […]

Wooden Bunting

April 29, 2011

The bunting is out across the country. Well, across George’s tree platform anyway. It may not be red, white and blue for the Royal Wedding, but it seems a fitting thing to post about today. I fancied some wooden bunting for various events we will be attending during the Summer to publicise etc. magazine so […]

Brandy Butter

December 23, 2010

Do you think of Brandy Butter as a bit odd? Or does it take you back to childhood Christmases and nicking spoonfuls out of the fridge? I’m in the latter category. In fact I only ever remember surreptitiously eating spoonfuls of it when no one was looking as I have never been a fan of […]

Roast Sprout Tree

December 16, 2010

I bought a ‘sprout tree’ at the supermarket. I guess they are so ‘in season’ that they are a bargain at the moment. It was really fresh and a beautiful thing to look at with its perfect spirals of firm green sprouts. It seemed a shame to chop them all off and cook them. I’d […]

Last Minuten Stollen

December 28, 2009

4

This month’s “Fresh From The Oven” challenge was to make a Stollen. Now I have to admit to reservations about this one. Not least that I don’t like marzipan, but I also knew things would be quite hectic on the run up to Christmas and that I would not have chance to get it done. […]

Merry Christmas One and All

December 24, 2009

Just a few short hours until George can open his goodies under the tree. Ed and George are preparing me a birthday tea as I write this. Whilst I was up North photographing actors in the snow on Tuesday they made this lovely little Gingerbread house from a kit that George got for his birthday. […]

Tarts (and Mince Pies)

December 17, 2009

Okay, okay I relented and made some mince pies. I didn’t want to as I don’t like mincemeat, but my name was down to make a couple o’ dozen for the school carol service so I had to bite the bullet and bake some for the first time…EVER! Here they are looking festive with some […]
