Recicember Day 25: Merry Christmas Dinner!

It’s Christmas Day! Merry Christmas all y’all! There’s no great big write-up today, as I am far too busy doing Christmas. However, as I have been elected to make the Christmas dinner, here are some pics of how it went down. There are potatoes roasted in a similar style to the herby ones from the […]

Recicember Day 24: Butterscotch Tart

I used to enjoy eating butterscotch sweets, but I can never find them in the shops now. You can get butterscotch flavour Instant Whip (that’s a bit like pudding if you’re American), but it’s not the same as the solid sweet. In any case, what is butterscotch? Alcoholic butter? Butter from Scotland? Turns out, it’s […]

Recicember Day 21: Terry’s Chocolate Orange Fondant Cake

It’s not Terry’s, it’s mine! Ha! How we nearly laughed at that one. Well, it just so happens that this chocolate orange is mine as I bought it in a shop. The recipe is from GoodToKnow, so we won’t say any more about that. Except they do seem to have an obsession with Peter Andre. […]

Recicember Day 20: Nigella’s Chocolate Yule Log

It’s a Christmas recipe again for Recicember! Who doesn’t love chocolate yule log? People who don’t like chocolate, that’s who. The recipe is from Nigella Lawson, and certainly doesn’t start well – “I know the recipe looks finicky”…I wonder how this is going to turn out… I’m certainly not keen on mucking about. I can […]
