This year, I decided to scale things down a bit. Therefore, I will spend less time scouring the shops to buy gifts, in favor of handmade or homemade presents.

Not only this is infinitely less stressful, but it give me much more pleasure to make something by hand, helps me pass the time, and is far better for my wallet too! 😉

Hence this delicious, handmade (or homemade) lime marmalade, which is perfect to include in Holiday food hampers, to give to neighbors, as Christmas stocking fillers, or to add to your festive cheese boards at home!

Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. And this is exactly what I had in mind when I created this winter breakfast bar!

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Camembert Cheese Fondue Board

Winter rhymes with cozy, comforting food. And a cheese fondue sure ticks both boxes! A few years ago, I shared my recipe for a traditional French Savoyard Cheese Fondue here on the blog . It's the perfect cheese fondue recipe for entertaining!  But this year, I was inspired to re-vamp and make my cheese fondue a little lighter and easier to prepare. Hence this delicious Camembert cheese fondue, baked in its own box and served on a board of rainbow-colored veg!

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate + Peanut Butter Fudge Drink Stirrers

This post is sponsored by the National Peanut Board . I received compensation, but all opinions and content are my own. When the weather turns colder, I reach for the hot chocolate. Are you the same? It's the perfect, comforting drink and one of the perks of winter for me! In fact, it's a tradition this time of year in our house to have a hot chocolate station set up with mugs, toppings and fun treats in our kitchen, ready for when the craving for a mug of hot cocoa hits. And this year, I've upped the ante on my go-to hot chocolate recipe, with peanut butter!

Roast Pork with Herb & Mustard Crust Recipe

Roast Pork with Herb & Mustard Crust Recipe

My favorite part of the Christmas Holidays is cooking and baking well into the New Year. It's my way of showing my family and friends how much I love them. I feed, therefore I love 😋  But I also like putting my feet up and enjoy their company, so I tend to go for big batch recipes, stuff I can make ahead or easy bang-it-in-the-oven-and-forget-about-it type of recipes. Hence this tasty Christmas roast pork with a gorgeous herbs and mustard crust, which I served at my Christmas meal last year!

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

Sparkling Citrus Holiday Sangria Recipe

When it come to Holiday entertaining, it's always a great idea to serve a big-batch punch or signature cocktail that your guests can get stuck into straight away. Something that involves little effort, and maximum satisfaction is my motto.  So for my Silver & Blue Cocktail and Appetizers party I shared earlier in the week, I did just that.  Serving up a batch cocktail like this means you can prep it in advance and just forget about it, which in turn leaves you free to mingle and enjoy the party! Something we tend to forget sometimes at parties we host ourselves (sound familiar?) 😉
