Christmas Recipes and Ideas
Some of these recipes aren’t just for Christmas, it is just the time of year that I make them most. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t make them all year round. Even the Christmas cake is lovely made just as a fruit cake, with or without marzipan and frosting. And there are very few occasions when my Chocolate and Blueberry Pudding Cake is not a welcome sight after a celebratory meal.
Christmas Recipes – Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is often neglected on Christmas Day in favour of the feast to come, but I think it’s lovely to start off the day with something tasty.
