Hello and welcome to week 50 of CookBlogShare!
I cannot believe that we are nearing the end of another successful year of #CookBlogShare. I love how far this linky has come and how it has grown into a lovely community of foodie enthusiasts. But it would not be where is is without the help from my fantastic co-hosts Eb from Easy Peasy Foodie, Jacqui from Recipes Made Easy and Monika from Everyday Healthy Recipes. Since I returned to the employed world, they have literally kept the linky afloat. Without their help I really do not know where it would be, so thank you ladies, I really do appreciate all of your hard work!
For now, I am on the countdown to finishing work for the Christmas holidays. From Wednesday, next week, I will be off for 2 weeks and I cannot wait. One of the highlights of working in a school is the holidays, they not only allow me to enjoy the precious time with the children but it also allows me to continue working on Hijacked By Twins. Over the last 4 and a half years it has become a huge part of my life and something I cannot imagine not having. This week I am sharing my four favourite recipes from last week, next week the linky will be with Jacqui and then on Boxing Day it will return to me when I will be doing a round up of 2017. I will be featuring my favourite recipes from the last year, it will be a mixture of sweet and savoury recipes that you have shared over the last year. I cannot wait to share it with you!
Now on to this week's linky. Here are my four favourite recipes from week 49 of CookBlogShare, four recipes that would make delicious homemade, edible gifts...
The first recipe that I thought would make a tasty gift is this Luxury Vegan Mincemeat from YumSome. Regardless of whether you are a vegan or not you cannot deny this full of fruit mincemeat. This mincemeat looks and sounds ideal for some mince pies or even by the spoonful!
The following recipe not only impressed me but also impressed Chris Moyles! Yes, these creative diary free, gluten free and nut free mini Christmas cakes from Glutarama were mentioned after Rebecca sent one of her free from treats to the breakfast radio legend! With or without the approval of Chris, I know that these would be a huge success here!
Preserves are perfect for Christmas hampers and the following two recipes certainly tick that box!
One of our favourite treats has to be cheese and wine. Of course with a good cheese you need a good chutney! This quick onion chutney from The Peachick's Bakery is dairy free, soy free and gluten free. If you need a quick and easy chutney for a last minute hamper this is the recipe that you need!
Finally if you are wanting to give a jam that is a bit more special than your average jam this easy rose hip jam from Sew Historically would be perfect. What makes this jam even better is that you do not need to sit scraping out all of the seeds, simply blend the rose hips and then strain them through a fine mesh.
Now on to this weeks linky. To recap on the 'rules' pop over to my CookBlogShare page.
I cannot wait to see what you have been cooking up!
