Merry Christmas to you...
A bit of a mix, from all the places I've been blessed to spend Christmas time.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas, where ever, or however, you celebrate it!
A little taste of the season
My Favorite Seasonal Snack
My absolute favorite Christmas time snack: gingerbread with blue cheese, here with Saint Agur
Great for after a meal, or just a little something in the evening with mulled wine
Victoria's Christmas Pudding
This is one of my favorite Christmas time desserts from my childhood, and I still make it every year. I love to serve it with cold red sauce, made with strawberries, or with fresh berries if they are available, or sometimes with both. But it can also be served with other sauces, raspberry, cherry, plum, etc.
In Finland, where I come from, on traditional Christmas Eve lunch, it is often served rice porridge, and then the leftovers from the porridge are used for this dessert. Convenient and quick, when the porridge is ready. And so sinfully delicious...
Savory Pie with many purposes
This recipe is absolutely wonderful, since you can make the savory pie with whatever filling you choose; ham, chicken, salmon, vegetables... You name it! When using salmon, I also add chopped fresh dill, with chicken I put paprika and a bit chili powder to give it a kick, I also mix meat and veggies, or sometimes just vegetables, if that's what is wanted.
It is great for breakfast, lunch, late night snack, for potluck, or whatever you have planned. It can also be made a day before, and heated up as needed, but I like to eat it cold as well. You really can't go wrong with this recipe!
