Christmas 2012 Cookery Highlights and Recipes

Half-demolished gingerbread house found in our kitchen this morning...
Wishing you all a somewhat belated Happy Christmas; hope you are having a wonderful holiday, and apologies for not having posted anything for nearly a week; all the preparations finally caught up with me and I literally haven't had time to catch my breath until now- sound familiar? The wonderful main course I had planned to post in time for Christmas just didn't manifest (but we had a great roast dinner anyway) so I'm hoping to get that done in time for the New Year celebrations. Here are some pictures of some of the things we cooked with recipe links where relevant...

By popular request from the family, gingerbread house #3


Cranberry Christmas cake with lemon-y icing and  home-made marzipan 


My husband's splendid vegan Christmas pud, shown here with vanilla Swedish Glace vegan "icecream" but equally good served hot with soya custard (recipe  to follow shortly)

This year's cheeseboard highlight: a vegan cultured cashew and soya roule that's an even tastier cruelty-free alternative to Le Roule or goats' cheese (recipe to follow soon)


Nut roast and all the trimmings (made a week or so ago for our other blog, "Vegan on a Budget")
