Oh it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

December 22, 2010

Woohoo, bring on the holidays and the time for mucho relaxo! And beach! Bring on the beach! Then come the new year, I will be back in bloggo land perked up and ready to go for a bit of spring cleaning and perhaps a makeover? In the meantime, there are only four days to go till C-day so while I’m tinkering and frolicking in the background, allow me to rehash some of my old Xmas posts, just in case you need any last minute festive jolts. If not, then at least let me do it for shameless shits-and-giggles…smile. Over and out…

I’ve just stumbled upon your blog after searching for “flourless apple cake”. A bit of intrigue and searching, and I stumbled into this post – I LOVE the icecream! And the whole blog. The way you write, what you write about and the photo’s are all incredible.
I read food porn when I should be working – you are now another very grateful distraction!

So many tempting desserts, but the two that are really calling my name right now are the Christmas Pudding and Apple Crumble Ice Cream. I'll have to pull out the ice cream maker!

Ooooh…. those all look amazing! I'm getting fat just looking at the pix. Good thing for a treadmill because I'm thinking most of these will make my baking list in the next week.


citrusandcandy December 22, 2010 at 09:21

Lol a part of me wants to eat them all in one day but the thought of the treadmill scares the bejeezus out of me. Hope you have an amazing Christmas!
