I can hardly believe how quick November went by, however, now we’re into my most favourite season of the year!
Since I was little I have always felt a sense of joy around the holiday season; there was always something sort of magical about this time of year.
So, let’s dig into all of the deliciousness of the season with my Monthly Favourites including which recipes to make in December!
I had A LOT of client work in November and not much downtime, so I’m really excited for a slower holiday season.
We did get away for a little long weekend in mid-November, heading to BC for a little mountain downtime which was the perfect re-charge before finishing up many projects the rest of the month.
During the last week of November we got our Christmas tree up and decorated. I bought alllll of the butter at the grocery store to start my Christmas baking and I’ve watched my favourite holiday movies about 8x each, haha. Some of my favourites are Elf, The Holiday, Love Actually and Home Alone which I like to watch whilst baking!
Stay tuned to the blog during December as I have a few more treats up my sleeve plus my baking list for the season and perfect shareable recipes for entertaining!
And, I’m planning all of the delicious dishes to make the rest of this month too! Here are some of my favourite recipes to make in December:
I’m really looking forward to being at home this month; enjoying time reading by the Christmas tree; visiting with family and friends; and, cooking at home.
And, if you need any book gift ideas, a couple of my favs from this year are:
Healthyish is one of the only cookbooks I’ve purchased this year and we cook out of it all, the, time! Seriously so many delicious dishes that are simple to make, especially during the week. There is a Spiced Chicken & Chickpea Flatbread with Cucumber-Dill Tzatziki that is so simple for a weeknight dinner, plus a TON of flavour! Then my other favourite recipe in the book is a Single-Serving Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie; for when you need a cookie, stat!
If you need a few novel ideas, The Little French Bistro and Little Beach Street Bakery are two really cute books that I absolutely loved. Both books have a foodie-twist, are easy to read and totally heartwarming.
I’d love to know what some of your favourite dishes are to make during the holiday season! Drop me a note below in the comments or visit me over on Instagram.
Until the next cooking adventure,
