Cherry and Almond Mincemeat

For a couple of weeks now in the office there has been an almost constant supply of mince pies on the sharing food pile, so far I have managed to avoid these with my no mince pies till December rule. However this year I have an added incentive, tucked away in my fridge is a jar of homemade mincemeat.

I have promised myself that the first bite of a mince pie I have this year will not be the sad excuse that the supermarket’s sell. No, I will have a mince pie made entirely by my own hand.

Spiced Cranberry Muffins

There are lots of things I could have done with the last of my fresh cranberries, and fighting the temptation to just make Chicken and Cranberry Sauce again, I decided that it was time for another post on muffins.

Chicken with Cranberry Sauce

Christmas decorations, food and music shouldn’t be played before the 4th of December. For the past couple of years I have stopped using shops that started “celebrating” too early, unfortunately this now means I can’t set foot in a shopping mall until December.

So you may wonder why I am blog a cranberry dish so early in November? Well the truth is when I saw these fresh cranberries in the supermarket, I had such a hankering for this recipe, I just had to make it.

Scottish Tablet: The Perfect Gift

As you know Sunday is Father’s Day, I am always at a bit of a loss as to what to get my Dad. I am passed the time when I could get away with getting him a tie, pair of socks or some golfing equipment. So as usual I was thinking about what I would like to do, rather than the task in hand – finding the perfect present.
