In My Kitchen December 2015

December post, that came up really fast.  I wrote in November that hopefully the December post would have lots of Christmas baking.  Nope failed that one.  I have not baked one single Christmas cookie.

This will be the last post hosted by the lovely Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial  .  Thank you to Celia for hosting these every month and bringing such a nice supportive community together.  Don’t forget if you want to participate you must post and let Celia know before the 10th.  Our new host will be Maureen at The Orgasmic Chef.  I look forward to meeting up in your kitchen Maureen.

In my kitchen is an Advent calendar, which some of you saw in an earlier post last week.


In my kitchen is an Advent candle.


In my kitchen window is Snoopy and Woodstock


In my kitchen is a treat from Uncle Tatsu’s, a Japanese cheesecake, it was soooo good

in my kitchen is some saltine toffee (post to follow);


and a cranberry orange loaf (post to follow);


A cookie press, hopefully to assist with the making of some cookies soon;


Belgian dark chocolate;


trail mix;


and a gingerbread house, Santa and chef will not go to the dark side.


Merry Christmas to all! If you do not celebrate Christmas I hope that you have a wonderful and relaxing end to the year.

See you in January at Maureen’s!

    Those Belgian little bites look yummy!! I saw my boys buy me some Lindt chocolate (yes, I peeked!) Chocolate is winner in my book! 🙂 🙂 Merry Christmas to you too Evie 🙂

    I’m with you, I haven’t baked a single Christmas cookie either! I would like to think I still have lots of time. That being said it flies quickly and I was already down for several days due to illness. Let the baking begin any day now! Saltine toffee sounds yummy and probably relatively easy. Your loaf cake also looks delicious.

    Delightful things in your kitchen and the gingerbread house is adorable. I used to have an electric American cookie press that I had to use with a power converter but it eventually died. I need a new one.

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I absolutely love your advent candle! First I have seen – brilliant!
    My cookie press doesn’t come out of the cupboard that often, one because it makes me eat too many cookies and two it doesn’t always work as well I would like.
    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you and yours.

    Isn’t it a rule that Christmas baking is best when it’s a last-minute thing? No? Well, it should be. Your cranberry orange loaf looks tempting so slice for an afternoon “cuppa”. Merry Christmas.

  6. I have never even see a cookie press! I look forward to seeing it in action. Lots of love.. c

  7. This will be the 4th year in a row I have sworn off baking Christmas cookies, that cookie press might make me change my mind though. I’ve didn’t realize they were still making them. You have lots of other lovely sweets in your kitchen, cake looks delicious. I’ve never heard of Japanese cheesecake, sounds interesting, not too sweet?

  8. Great kitchen! Lovely to see a fellow snoopy fan!

    I’ve not done the baking that I usually do for Christmas as we will be traveling. That Belgian chocolate has to be tasty.

  10. japanese cheesecake? now that sounds interesting. i have done no xmas baking nor do i expect to as my xmas spirit has taken flight this year and left me adrift.:( Yum to belgian chocolate – the best! merry merry xmas to you and yours.

    I love your Christmas/Advent decorations. How adorable! The candle may be my favourite – I’ve never seen one like it. I am sure that santa and the chef resisted the dark side admirably!
