Counting down to a #zerofucks Christmas

It only feels like a few weeks ago that we got back from Croatia, and I am finding it almost impossible to grasp that not only is it Christmas in less than two weeks time but the long awaited New York trip is also done and dusted. We arrived home in the midst of a ...

Christmas Day lunch.

It's not every year I get the chance to do what I love so much at Christmas time: feed lots and lots of people by cooking lots and lots of yummy dishes. Some years it's quiet and that's okay too, but I am super excited that this year we are having the kind of Christmas ...

“It was Christmas Eve babe, in the drunk tank…”

So it's almost Christmas you guys. There's that crazed and somewhat frantic feeling in the air as we get ready for the festivities and refuse to believe that we have come to the end of yet another year. Christmas is official at our place when I start playing my favourite Christmas song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBfnOZmWrX8 {Fairytale of New York, by ...

I like it so check it out :: DECEMBER

That's right: December. Crazy, right? It's been a whirlwind countdown to the final month of the year, and I don't know why I stupidly thought I'd get a quiet week somewhere, and now Christmas is only two weeks away and we're having a full house on the day {which is a good thing I promise} ...

What I learned this last week…

Sometimes I feel like I live in a bubble, far away from the hoopla that, some of the time at least, seems to make up the rest of the world, and in this bubble of mine the real world doesn't always seem to penetrate. I'm usually jolted back into the real world with the thoughts "where the ...

Merry Christmas 2014

Here we are at the end of yet another year, gearing up to celebrate another Christmas. Although I must admit I am putting off the food shopping until the last minute, which isn't the wisest thing, I know. {Although I did make an exception to drive halfway across town this morning to pick up the ...

Roast turkey with bacon, pistachio, and apricot stuffing.

Here in Australia it seems that the only time of year you can easily find a whole fresh turkey is in the lead up to Christmas. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving, and the rest of the year you have to either order one specially {and even then cross your fingers} or settle for a frozen buffe ...


The Silly Season

So Christmas Day is now only eleven days away. I have to admit that I am suffering from a serious case of Grinch-itis, and am struggling to whip up a whole lot of enthusiasm. It's not the pressure that is getting to me, rather I think I am suffering from some post-Paris silly-season dysfunctional-family blues. ...

Christmas Pudding

Here we are folks, already at the business end of the year. Christmas may still be five weeks away, but now is the perfect time to get started on this traditional steamed pudding. I like to start about six weeks before the big day by preparing my fruit mince and making the pudding. Then it ...


Our Table

With a whole other blog dedicated to food and cooking, it's a no-brainer that I love to cook. But even more than that, what I really love is to feed people. Taking note of the calender and seeing that the 25th of December isn't too far off, my mind has already turned to puddings, tarts, ...
