A stress free Christmas Dinner with COOK

A stress free Christmas Dinner with COOK

I have been super lucky this weekend as I got to try out a stress free Christmas Dinner with COOK and have a practice run before the big day. We shared our yummy meal with friends and had a lovely Sunday eating delicious food, that took a grand total of 70 minutes to cook.

A Christmas style turkey burger with a summer twist

I know, its half way through the year and no where near Christmas, but I am already thinking about my favourite things. My favourite food combinations at Christmas are: turkey, cranberry and cheeses!
