It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

OK so may be it is a little early to use the C word just yet but I live in the Netherlands and so for us Christmas begins with the arrival of Sinterklaas on the 14th November. I also feel this year has been a hard one and so the joy I get from putting up my Christmas tree and having Christmas lights was a welcome relief.

Something sweeter….

I am going to trial different Christmas favourites over the next six weeks. Today I made Paul Hollywood’s mince pies. I have to say the pastry is so light, I ate three of these in quick succession.
