Scenes from a pre-Christmas week...

It's been a big week here in our household.  My sister in law is here so the kids and I have been really enjoying her company.  We've also been enjoying the snow and many other Christmassy pursuits, especially baking.

So there's been...

 A little gingerbread baking...

A little fruit mince tart making...

A little bowl and spoon licking...

A little menu planning...

And there's also been...

Visiting Christmas markets in gorgeous medieval Swiss towns...

...snowy Christmas tree admiring...

...gratuitous use of my new Kitchenaid belgian waffle maker....

...grinning in the snow...

...posing for unsuccessful family pics...

...admiring the view...

...fondue consuming...

 ...and...

...snow angel making...

  3. Hi there,
    At some point after Christmas would you consider putting up a fruit mince tart tutorial? My attempt this year was some what unsuccessful and the photo you have of yours there looks wonderful!
    It would be ever so appreciated.

    God bless and Merry Christmas xx

  4. Hi!

    I have a wonderful recipe for fruit mince tarts that is so simple and uses banana as a binder (as opposed to suet). The mince requires no pre-cooking and can be made in the food processor.

    I will try and post the recipe up today :)
