As we are inching towards Christmas 2015, I thought it would be nice for my readers to have a look at the recipes that were posted during the festive season over the years. While I started blogging way back in 2009 it was not until December 2010 that I got serious about it. Over the years I have tried out Christmas recipes that are part of my culinary heritage and those that grabbed my attention simply because there is so much out there that can spark your interest and make you want to cook!
I love experimenting with new recipes and I always bookmark them and add them to my ever growing to-do list. Whatever I am unable to try out during the festive season of one year gets carried forward to the next. In the upcoming days I will be adding more thumbnails to this compilation as I have a few more recipes to go!
The collection of festive recipes below are all those recipes that I made with Christmas in mind so you will see not just cakes, bakes and sweets but an occasional savoury dish as well.
If there is a recipe you don't see below, do take a moment to go through my two recipe indexes which have been simplified as much as I could.
You can search by category in the Picture Recipe Index
or if you know the name of the recipe do search by name in the Recipes A-Z
where they are listed alphabetic order. If you still don't find what you want please mail me with your recipe request and I will include it in the coming year!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!!
