Blogmas Day Fourteen: Christmas Card Craft

Hi guys 👋🏻

11 days until Christmas!


I enjoy making cards and have been doing so for like 12 years now, maybe longer.

I wish I had more time to do it to be honest and the last few years its been hard to make them for both birthdays and Christmas….

…For birthday’s I have opted for the assistance of a certain Funky Pidgeon but I like to make sure that I hand make my Christmas ones.

(Why? when it’s the busiest time of year I don’t know 🤣😬)

But its a good activity to make you feel festive, so here we are again!

Let’s take a look!

Until Next Time,

Festive Leftovers 🥧🎄

Hi guys! 👋🏻

Now I don’t usually post after Blogmas until New Year but, I felt inspired and we all have a bit more time on our hands at the mo don’t we!

So, heres my festive leftover pie!

Perfect after those big roast dinners on Christmas day and great for being a bit thrifty.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A sheet or block of puff pastry
  • Leftover turkey
  • Leftover veg
  • Bacon or leftover Pig in blankets
  • 3 table spoons of double cream
  • A little milk
  • Cranberry sauce
  • A little grated cheese (optional)
  • Salt, pepper & garlic powdee to season

Lay out/or roll out your pastry. Cover the pastry (leaving half an inch around the edge free) with your cranberry sauce.

Heat up the cream and milk lightly, simmering it. Season.

Fry off some bacon.

Add your Turkey and bacon into the bubbly, creamy mixture.

I would also add the leftover veg at this point too. I added frozen peas to mine as I had no leftover veg.

Make sure it’s all warmed through thoroughly.

Grate a little cheese on top of the cranberry sauce.

Carefully spoon your creamy filling onto the pastry, on one side.

Fold the pastry over to cover the filling. Use a fork to create a seal around the edge. Pierce the top a few times to allow steam to escape.

I decorated mine with stars from the pastry scraps.

Spray with butter frylight or egg wash before baking in the oven for 25 minutes.

Yum!


I was slightly inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Hodge Podge Christmas Pie, I watched a video on his Instagram yesterday!

Here’s a link to that recipe:

Let me know if you give this a go!

Enjoy 🍽

Blogmas Day Twenty Four: An Easy Christmas Day Dessert ðŸ«ðŸ¥§ðŸŽ„


ONE DAY TO GO!!

The penultimate post is here.


As I said a few days ago, I have one more recipe for you! And it’s perfect for a special Christmas day occasion.

It’s a delicious, and relatively easy and quick, Salted caramel (do I need to say any more?) and chocolate tart.

It doesn’t require a lot of ingredients which is great! And apart from time for it to set it doesn’t take too long either. It only took me an hour or so one evening so its great as a fancy, last minute showstopper.

Don’t let the making caramel stage scare you… it’s not as horrendous as you’d think and, if you have a food thermometer this will really come in handy.

I will link both of the recipes that I used below.

I used pre made shortcrust. Remember to bake it blind for 15 mins before removing the baking parchment and beans (or whatever you have, I used dried pasta) pop it back in until it starts to turn golden.

Chocolate Ganache

Caramel

I had some nice flakey salt that I added during the caramel recipe process (as stated but I doubled it) and I sprinkled more salt on, generously, once I had poured the caramel into my cooled tart.

Leave the caramel to set and then add your silky smooth ganache on top. Good quality Dark chocolate is the best.

As someone who likes baking, I enjoyed this recipe because it uses lots of different techniques that perhaps I wouldn’t bother to try usually.

And it looks impressive too!


This is going to be our Christmas day dessert, served with some thick double cream, YUM!

Give it a go!

It’s indulgent but you won’t regret it.

Until Next Time,

Blogmas Day Twenty Three: Homemade Christmas Cards ðŸŒ²

Hi guys! 👋🏻

I’ll just leave this here, just because….

It has to be done, every year.

So, I do try and make my Christmas cards every year and I have done for over 10 years now (Sayyyyy whatt, madnesss)

This year, with all the craziness I almost didn’t… but then I thought, let’s just scale it back a little, keep them simple and I just do it for my fambizzle.

So thats what I did… if you are family and are reading this, maybe don’t or your card might be on here 🤣🤣

I still had loads of festive paper left over so I used that as the main design as they are pretty ones.

My calligraphy leaves much to be desired but, be won’t worry about that.

I really liked the simple effect of using the gift tags as part of the design.


I actually really enjoyed making these again. I have utilised Moonapig this year, in order to send cards all over the place, so it was actually really nice to be making them again!

Prehaps I’ll get ahead for next year whilst I’m enjoying it and have more time. It’s nice to do things when you have the time to enjoy it and it doesn’t become a chore.


Right, I’m off to organise our round for the Festive Boxing Day Quiz (2020 stylyyyy obv)

Happy Christmas Eve, Eve!

Until Next Time,

Blogmas 2019 Day Seven: Pretzel reindeer ðŸ¦Œâ¤


Pretzel Reindeers


These are so cute!

Here’s what you’ll need…

○Pretzels

○Rolos

○Red and/or brown smarties/MMs noses

○Edible eyes

○Non stick paper

○Baking tray

Heres how you make them…

○ First lay out your pretzels onto the paper (on a baking tray)

○Split a pretzel or use pretzel sticks to create antlers and place two of these underneath each pretzel, in position.

○Place rolos in the holes of the pretzels.

○Pop them in a low heat oven to melt the rolos.

○When the rolos start to go gooey you can take them out.

○Press the rolos down to spread out the gooey chocolate caramel over the surface of the pretzel.

○When its still melted pop a nose and eyes onto the reindeer pretzels to make the face.

(Make sure the pretzel antlers are pushed into the melted choc before you pop them into the fridge, so that they dont move out of position.)

I made a few with red Rudolph noses and a few with brown noses to make his pals.

○ Pop them into the fridge to cool.

Enjoy!

These would be so fun to make with kiddies, as Christmas day treats or as cute little homemade gifts popped into a festive treat bag.


18 Days until Christmas!!

Malteaser Millionaires shortbread.

I havn’t done a baking post in a little while and as the Autumn/Winter months draw closer it’s all about cosy comforts, and these are perfect.

Plus, it’s Bake Off season so who doesn’t love a bit of inspired baking.

I used a BBC Good Food recipe as they always work so well. I’ll leave that here

I modified this recipe to create these Malteaser filled beauties.

In addition to the ingredients you’ll need:

  • Malteaser Teaser chocolate bar
  • Malteaser buttons (Large share bag)
  • Malteaser Teaser chocolate spread

Just mix these into the chocolate stated in the recipe, melt them together to make them extra special. Add the Malteaser buttons to the melted chocolate mix too but, keep some as decoration.

These went down a treat at the Macmillan Coffee mornings that I attended.

Happy baking!

Until next time,

Roseanne 🙂
