Happy New Year to all my supporters!

Sorry I haven't posted anything recently, things got a bit out of hand....
The best thing I have made over CHRISTMAS was an icecream, 
Equal parts of whipped  double cream, Greek yoghurt and home made lemon curd, into which I folded grilled  and thinly cut slices of pineapple and the juice of four passion fruits. Frozen in a bowl,it fed 14 of us on Boxing night.
I also made a venison casserole, some seafood pancakes ,and an Apple and amaretti Tart ,with home made mincemeat underneath the apple slices,which were dusted with cinnamon and sugar.
Wonderful traditional Christmas dinner of Turkey and all the trimmings! Sprouts with chestnuts, carrot and parsnip pureé ,spiced red cabbage, and roast potatoes , delicious,and huge thanks to my daughter in law for. Cooking the meal.
May 2015 be a happy and fruitful one for us all.  I have 2 great new cook books,and will enjoy cooking some of the recipes

Look at what I have made!

Lovely Cranberry Stollen. 
Recipe from a Sainsburys Magazine pull out on Baking from YEARS ago. 
Actually, I think that the Stollen one can buy from LIDL is just as good as this was ! Rather heavy, and considering the time,effort and ingredients, it was not really worth making. Such a shame. I'm really disappointed .
Can't wait to try it.
