Christmas cookies

Difficulty 2/5

I must say that, in general, my experience decorating cookies hasn’t been very good. One of the main reasons is because I’m really impatient (“uh…. that should work”) and the other reason is that I didn’t know some tips that are very useful to get rid of the urge to toss the tray of cookies in the bin.

Gingerbread loaf

Difficulty 1/5

There’s nothing like receiving a gingerbread cake or loaf in December! You open it and off comes the smell of spices. Imagine now that you’re at come, and the smell¬†coming from the oven fills¬†your whooooole house with the scent of Christmas. Nothing compares to it :). I recommend that you always make a double recipe so you can give one to someone else and keep the other ūüėÄ Continue reading Gingerbread loaf

Mini post : honeycomb

Difficulty: 1/5

This honeycomb is a nice sweet I learned to eat in London. It’s caramel but you add bicarbonate of soda and it reacts creating lots of bubbles. It’s amazing because then we get all the flavour from the caramel without breaking your teeth. Great to top ice-creams, to cover with chocolate, to put on cakes. And it’s soooo easy but it also impresses quite a lot. Continue reading Mini post : honeycomb

Christmas turkey with gravy

Difficulty 3/5

In my house, if there’s something¬†that can’t be missing on our Christmas dinner is turkey. If someone even dares to say maybe we could have chicken, pork, beef, duck, or tofu, he or she is going to endure¬†the worse hatred looks on planet Earth. With time, my mom perfected her turkey method, and if I’m honest I do love her turkey. A closer version to hers in last year’s turkey recipe. The recipe I bring you today mixes my mom’s best practices ¬†mixed with flavours that I like (mainly herbs). The skin is golden and the meat extremely moist. I bring you allll the tips and tricks you need to know down in this post, so I recommend you give it a good read before starting.¬† Continue reading Christmas turkey with gravy

5 Cocktails with Sparkling wine

Difficulty 1/5

Now that it’s¬†December and we start organizing gatherings with friends¬†and family to celebrate the upcoming holidays, I feel that sparkling wine is the best to say “cheers” with. However, this doesn’t mean that we have to drink it on its own, right? In this post I bring you 5 cocktails (some even with gin) that you can make in your gatherings for something more fun and different. The sparkling wine I used is Asti, which is quite sweet, so if you don’t find this one, ask which other you could use that is sweet. I did this so you don’t have to make sugar syrups all the time but rather use the sweetness contained in the wine. Before you start, make sure that your wine is VERY VERY COLD.
