Happy Holidays to all. Wherever you are, I hope you’re kicking off the holiday season with loved ones, a few good snacks and not one, nor two, but a few glasses of good cheer ;)
This month, there are four recipes to get you through the holiday season!
We’ve sung along to a christmassy-jazzy tune and oggled this Recipe for a Glazed Ham. We’ve debated the importance of home made gifts during the season of giving and the ultimate recipe for, Christmas in a jar.
See below for everyone’s favourite little friend this holiday. He’s famous, he’s tasty! and I know we all appreciate a good cookie hack, (every now & then!) With his little icing dribble & marshmallow hat, you’ll be feeling festive in no time! Don’t get me wrong, I am an advocate of the home made cookie, but if you should find yourself short of time or ideas this holiday season, then this video is for you!

Along the way, I’ve also taken more than a few snapshots & clips for my friends at Tastemade. If you’ve enjoyed these video tutorials and foodie films (so far,) It’s my absolute pleasure to let you know there will be more in 2014.
My last, (yet not least) recipe and time saver, is for these rich Dark Chocolate & Coconut Truffle Balls this Christmas. Filled with chocolate, butter, coconut & more, they’re deliciously ooey, gooey, decadent and no-bake! Make these ahead for the Christmas and New Year period and pull them out of the fridge (like magic!) when you next settle in for your favourite Christmas movie re-runs!

Little Xmas tip: If you should happen to be wrapping those gifts, close to midnight and find yourself short of a few tags or two, I might just have found your little life saver, in the form of these free printable gift tags
Most importantly I want to wish my fellow foodies a very Happy Holidays. Thank you for taking the time to follow, read, laugh eat and listen over the last year. I go into my final year as a student chef in 2014 and I promise, it will be an immensely tasty one!
But for now, “Be safe, be happy and be Merry this Christmas!” See you in 2014!
