Time for dessert! For the last recipe in my Christmas series this week I’m making a frosted cranberry and orange cake. This dessert is nice and bright with its seasonal citrusy flavors and bursts of cranberries. With all that fresh fruitiness, it’s the perfect way to end a Christmas meal with family.
Welcome to this week’s second Christmas post !
Since Christmas is quickly approaching, I wanted to share with you guys THREE recipes this week to give you some ideas, whether you’re cooking something for a Christmas day meal or a holiday party.
Today I’m making a “faux-gras”, because foie gras is traditionally eaten around Christmas time in France. It’s a traditional French delicacy made of duck or goose liver, you can think of it as a fancy pâté that you put on toasts with fig jam, and of course served with a glass of champagne for a festive apéro.
December has come upon us so quickly, as it seems to every year. But we’ve managed to hang some lights, decorate the tree, and now it’s time to bake some Christmas cookies !
I don’t know about you, but thanksgiving was super delicious this year! We celebrated this past weekend with a Friendsgiving dinner on Friday and then Thanksgiving on Saturday. It was wonderful to eat so many nostalgic dishes — and this year a lot of friends brought vegan versions so it was great to enjoy almost everything on the menu!
