Here we are – a little bit more until the magic begins. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, I have no doubts about it. I already am listening to all the Christmas songs on repeat and thinking on the festive dinner menu.
Autumn season is good not the only for it’s seasonal produce but also for holidays! And as Halloween and Bonfire Night are over this means that we can start to think about Christmas entirely.
I will not surprise you if I’ll say that winter holidays are my favourite! First of all Christmas means a chance for me to see family and friends. Everyone loves Christmas for it’s parties, and for me there is no better party then to spend time with the family. It means a cozy atmosphere, homemade food, family secrets and jokes. That’s why I was absolutely happy when Waitrose contacted me and asked to tell about hosting a Christmas party, making food for my guests and preparing my #HomeForChristmas. My thoughts and advices how to host your perfect Christmas party you can find out by checking my article in this week’s Waitrose Weekend magazine.
One of the meals which reflect my attitude towards good food are pies. I think it’s an excellent option for any party as you can make different filling, serve it either warm or cold, cut into many bites so everyone can try it.
Today I wanted to share one of my favourite pies with you – Onion pie, which I made with red onions and added a handful of dried cranberries which made this pie perfect for any Christmas party!
Here are some interesting thoughts about food. I am fond of homemade toothsome food, but I don’t like when it takes a lot of time to make it. Especially now, when I have a baby. In the matter of this I have some simple breakfast/lunch ideas which I just change every time by adding some new fruits or vegetables or chocolate!
One of those ideas is Scones. Simple. No a lot of products needed. And sure a timesaver!
I’m in the process of choosing which recipes to do and share on the blog. Any ideas? This post I’ve made about a month ago but didn’t have a chance to posting it. So here it is! The simplest basic recipe of granola.
These days I tried to remake one of my favourite pancakes with squash but adding sweet potato instead. It tasted similar but more delicate and I like it!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, friends!
Hope you are having a great time with your loved ones and family! I wanted to make some new delicious recipes for holidays, but have absolutely no time for that. Sorry, friends! Every minute I have I want to spend with my family. So I decided to share with you my best winter recipes from the 2015th.
These days I have absolutely no time. Holidays are coming, the baby needs more mama, my dog needs to play every day and I was trying to share this recipe for more than several weeks. Sorry about that! But finally I found the time to do that! Because this recipe is very simple but so delicious! These brownies can be a perfect sweet gift for your friends for upcoming Christmas holidays. Mix the ingredients, bake them, cut into squares and place into the little bags. I think your friends will love you so much more after this chocolate gift!
I grabbed this recipe from my friend. It is amazing! It is not the simplest crepe recipe but it is worth the time to spend to make them. These crepes are so beautiful with all those little bubbles on the surface. Just look at the photos! Thanks to buttermilk they have sour-sweet taste and are pretty nourishing. They are perfect with autumn flavoured jams or just with honey and hot tea.
I don’t want to write a lot about scones. You know how much I like this kind of pastry because of their simplicity as well as their taste. Even if you are afraid to make pastry you might make good scones! Few days ago while deciding which recipe to share I thought that I have a lot of blueberries and I still didn’t make any berry scones. What else did I need?
Today is my absolutely happy Sunday! We’ve got up very early (if only you knew how I love early mornings!) packed some food into backpacks and will come out soon for the all day long walk in the park.
I really love walking. Yesterday I walked 7 km with my beagle Chantal and today I want more!
Fresh air, blackbird’s singing, Nick’s smile, my dog’s barking, picnic on the grass… these things make me an absolutely happy girl. Nothing is better than to eat some homemade food outdoor. In most cases we take some french and english cheeses, fresh bread or croissants and fruits. Sometimes I make wraps (with green salad, salmon, cucumber and hummus is my favourite) or just sandwiches.
