Citrus-Glazed Ham

Ham is not the first meat I go to when thinking of Christmas dinner, in all honesty. But I do still love delicious pieces of ham, especially with a good marinade or glaze. I can tell you now, I’d eat this citrus-glazes ham at any meal. It is sweet and tangy, and all around incredibly…

Crispy Hasselback Potatoes

I know many people will have discussions over whether to have roast potatoes or mashed potatoes with a Christmas dinner. For me, it’s always roast potatoes. Mashed potatoes are delicious, but should be with your regular meals, not your Christmas dinners. At least, in my opinion. These Hasselback Potatoes are a twist on the usual…

Chocolate Yule Log

I always used to look in awe at Yule Logs, I found them so beautiful and loved all the different ways they could be decorated. And, let’s be honest, I loved how much chocolate was involved. I have memories of Yule Logs as dessert at Christmas time, but I don’t remember them very well. I…

Bread and Sausage Stuffing

My favourite part of Christmas dinner has always been stuffing and potatoes. Just ask my Mum. I don’t know what it is about bread and sausage but damn, I love it. When you make this stuffing, make sure you get good quality bread and good quality sausages. It makes all of the difference. Make sure…

Peri-Peri Roast Chicken

Not everyone can fit a turkey in their oven, including me. My oven is a counter-top convection oven, and a whole turkey would just not fit in my 30cm wide oven. So, sometimes we turn to smaller poultry for our Christmas/holiday dinners (and yes, buying a fully roasted turkey is possible, but anyway). This roast…

Christmas Peppermint Loaf Cake

I told you there’d be new iterations of the yoghurt loaf cake. And this is it, a Christmas Peppermint cake. I used a Nordic Ware decorative loaf tin for this cake, as I felt it was appropriate, and the design really felt Christmas-y. The peppermint flavours don’t overwhelm the cake, but be careful with peppermint…

Christmas Tree Pull-Apart Bread

Making bread is so much fun. I know that it takes patience, especially when you are desperately waiting to see if your dough will rise, but it’s so diverse and the ability to make it into anything is incredible. I’d seen loads of different pull-apart breads before, and have seen them shaped into all sorts…

Gingerbread Bundt with Cinnamon Glaze

I treated myself to some Nordic Ware Bundt tins recently, and I couldn’t wait to get started with using them. I knew that this incredible Gingerbread cake would be the perfect way to christen my Heritage Bundt Pan. Due to the size of my oven, I bought a 6-cup Bundt tin rather than the full-sized…

Chorizo Sausage Rolls

Aren’t sausage rolls fantastic? Easy-to-make nibbles for all your party needs? I find that there can never be too many sausage rolls. But, if you’re going to make them, you are limited with how much time you want to spend making them, or how much you want to spend. It’s fair to say that sausage…

Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is a polarising beverage. Some people love it, and swear by it for the Christmas season. Others can’t stand it, and even the smell of it makes them feel like a Grinch. I’m firmly in the love camp, but I am fussy. I don’t like my mulled wine too sweet, or too booze-heavy….
