I adore everything about the Christmas season…the colours , the stories of sharing and caring , the treats , the beautiful tree all lit up, the special meals, the weather , the christmasy songs whether belted out by Frank Sinatra or carollers coming to your home at night and sharing their melodies…I love it all ! My favourite memories of Christmas as a child was of course the sweet little tree that mum always had with the gifts peeking underneath it but also of carol singers landing up at our doorstep and we waiting sleepily in our
nightwear and offering them a warm drink and some home made cake and savouries…what a great feeling !
As an adult the reasons I look forward to Christmas is mainly the opportunity to give…to be able to bring cheer to the ones most deserving,in your own small way…I hold very close to my heart the memory of baking cupcakes along with some dear friends,for the small children of a school run by a very large hearted human being…I look forward to re-living that experience again this year !
We also look forward to the amazing array of home baked goodies that show up at our doorstep every year…how fortunate to have such great friends across the seas who never fail to fill my larder with their yummy bites of confectionery that taste of love and hugs !
I share with you a recipe given to me by a friend…quite easy once you do make it,not to mention delicious !!!
