‘Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe perhaps Christmas means a little more.’
For me Christmas is a mix of shop bought and make your own. Making your own will generally be nicer, tastier and should be cheaper. However there are a few short cuts that shop bought can help with.
This is a big blog so please have a look, there are lots of great makes and information to get you through the festive season.
This year I am going all out on the Christmas makes.
Home-made gifts, decorations and food for the big day. All traditional looking and feeling fuzzyness for my favourite and most magical time of year.
Well it’ll be Sunday soon enough and there’s nothing better then having a huge lie in, followed by a lazy Sunday brunch, cooked for you by someone else, if possible.
I love having poached eggs on muffins or bagels with crispy bacon and hollandaise sauce or yummy sweet thick American style pancakes with blueberries, bacon and maple syrup. Ah just amazing!
I had always liked the sweet and savoury thing but when I went to Los Angeles I realised I loved it and so do they. The mixture of salty bacon cuts through the ultra sweet sticky maple syrup with big fluffy pancakes to soak up any juices and flavour and as a carrier for both, just heaven.
Pics: An amazing French toast and wild blackberries. A proper LA style breakfast, huge hash browns and eggs, with pancakes and fruit, and a whole cafetiere for one for $5 crazy!This was at an IHOP, international house of pancakes, oh yeah.
Cheesecake at the cheesecake factory, look at the size of those strawberries!
