Food on Friday ~ Christmas Extras

Christmas!!!!

For some it’s heir favourite time of the year ~ others aren’t always so fortunate, so we’ll try hard to make this a happy Christmas for the whole world.

Anyway, back to food for this Christmas.  I’ve no doubt that you’ve got all the main stuff organised ~ the Christmas Dinner I mean.  But what about all those snacks, and breakfasts, and afternoon teas that you’re going to want to provide over this festive season?

What about all those extras?  Well, this Food on Friday might just give you some good ideas.

First this week we have this really cool snowflake pull-apart monkey bread from Tieghan at Half Baked Harvest.  Loaded with butterscotch and cinnamon ~ what a great breakfast, or something extra sweet to have with your afternoon tea!

From No Plate Like Home, how about this eggnog quick bread with rum infused glaze?  What a great idea for afternoon tea, or for something to have at parties.  You know what?  I’ll bet this will go down a treat.

Next from the archives of Amanda at Chez le Rêve Français we have this Christmas tarted up treacle tart with ginger and pecans.  Jeez!  This looks so rich and tasty~ I love treacle tart!

Now for something that’s a cross between sweet and savory ~ from Elise Bauer at Simply Recipes we have honey hazelnut baked brie.  I really like baked brie, and this recipe looks fabulous with a sweet and sour honey sauce.

Here’s something sweet and irresistible from Averie Cooks; melt in your mouth toffee.  Averie says it’s perfect for cookie exchanges, or as a hostess gift, or for parties.  This toffee looks good to me.

Well, something no drinks party should be without is a brilliant cheese board.  So Chungah at Damn Delicious offers us some tips on how to create the perfect holiday cheese board.  Looks damn delicious to me.

And, talking about drinks, Country Living has this brilliant collection of drinks recipes; 30 Christmas cocktails for a holly jolly holiday season.  Among the recipes is this cool white Christmas mojito from Half Baked Harvest.

  2. My mouth is watering!!!! I so do love to cook and that first snowflake bread is beautiful.
    Actually, these are all beautiful. I’ll have to try the bread sometime and see if it turns out like the photo. Generally, my creations fall a bit short of the original, but they still taste good!
    I’m glad to see you sharing this sort of post again. I miss you when you are absent!

      I'd like to try the snowflake bread too, but although I can cook pretty well, baking is not my forte.
      Kris, it's good to be back. ❤ ❤ ❤
