Blogmas 2016…Some little nibbles..

Do you want to spend more time with your friends and less  time in the kitchen???? I know I do 😉

Do I need to use my cranberry sauce ( you all ) read the turkey saga..didn’t you? Well yes I do!

Then here are some simple yet tasty nibbles using my cranberry sauce..or some of

Camembert Puffs.



I pack of frozen Puff Pastry, thawed.

125gm(4 oz) of Camembert Cheese.

100gm Cranberry Sauce.

1 sprig of thyme…leaves picked.

1 large egg, beaten.

To Make:  

Line 2 baking tins with baking parchment.

Roll out puff pastry and cut into bite sized squares ( 3cm)

Put onto baking trays making sure you space well apart. Brush top with beaten egg. Chill in fridge for 20-30 mins.

Put into pre-heated oven 180 or gas mark 6. Cook for approx 10 minutes or until golden brown. Slice Camembert into equal sized pieces and put one in the centre of each pastry square. Top with a tsp of cranberry sauce. Put back into the oven until cheese has melted.

Garnish with Thyme.




This is a really quick slightly different take on traditional Hummus.

Can Of chick peas.

1 clove of garlic.

1 tsp of cumin powder.

1 tsp of coriander powder.

1/2 tsp chilli powder…or a bit

The juice of 1 lemon.

3-4 tbsp plain yoghurt.

Wiz everything together. If it too thick then add a little more yoghurt as required.

Serve with carrot and pepper sticks, tortilla chips or sliced pitta bread.
