The Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide

This post is sponsored by HelloFresh The Big Roast is quite the undertaking. If you wanna go all out, there’s a lot of work to do. However, so long as you get the right amount of preparation done beforehand and guilt trip enough layabout family members into giving you a hand, it’s manageable without too much panicking. It’s really all about strategy. What you need is a good game plan. My friends at HelloFresh happen to have one of these lying around, which is what I’ve interrupted your day for. The Ultimate Christmas Dinner Guide is a free download that will help you get organised for the big day. It’s got everything you need to make sure nothing goes tits up – and even provides a visual timeline so that you know what needs to happen when, step by step.

The 2017 Christmas Crisps Round Up

Yeah, this blog post is exactly what you think it is. I spent the entirety of November wandering up and down supermarket snack aisles looking for limited edition festive crisps. I know what you’re thinking and yes, you’re right, food blogging is a tough gig. But some brave soul’s gotta take one for the team and put on a few extra pounds to find you lot the best of the best. I really did have to kiss a few frogs to find out what the decent offerings were this year. Not included but tasted earlier on as they were purchased by a colleague are prosecco crisps. This is a trend that needs to die a death before it spreads any further. They are vile. They taste – and I do not say this lightly – like vomit.
