Christmas recipes

I'm very excited because it's almost December and for the first time I have a wonderful big kitchen to do lots of Christmas cooking. We're also only heading North for a couple of nights this year so we'll be spending more of the festive period at home.

  1. Normally home-made beats bought hands down but I don't think I shall ever bother trying to make stuffing again. I have found some of the packet ones are so good (and cheap). You can get just about every combination of herbs and fruits.
    Just vreading the titles of your recipesw has made me want to stuff myself - the carrot and cashew crisp sounds yummy.
