With Christmas a matter of days away (exciiiiiiited), we wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas.

We will be taking a break over the festive season but there’s lots of goodness in our archives for you to tuck into over the Christmas break (let’s face it, you will probably need a break from tucking into all the food, so a blog post or two should provide light relief).

If you like cooking, there’s a wealth of quick and easy recipes awaiting you here on the site. There’s also some trickier, more indulgent treats for you to try. You can check them all out here, or a shortlist of our favourites include: Veal Mince Ragu, Lemon Pepper Chicken, tomato and thyme cod, and the best ever steak recipe.

Of course, if you’ve got a sweet tooth we have something for you too, try these super easy and mega delicious brownies.

And if you have a tough crowd to please (e.g. kids) then you have to give Sausageasourus a whirl…

eating out

If you like to eat out, then you will want to check out our restaurant and cafe reviews. It includes a savoury afternoon tea, an all you can eat brunch, and michelin worthy pub grub.


If you are a book geek like us, and looking for your next read – make sure you check out our book club posts. There’s lots of reviews and recommendations there for you to get your teeth stuck into. Some favourites include Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and revisiting a classic, like East of Eden by John Steinbeck.


There are lots of different things you can do to push your comfort zone and challenge yourself to new things. You can read some of our suggestions here, including tough mudder, a thames running relay and a half marathon (we promise there are some less exhilarating suggestions in there too).

So that’s plenty to keep you occupied. We hope you have a truly fabulous festive break. Christmas is all about spending time with your loved ones, which is the essence of Year of the Yes as well. So make the most of it, spread joy, and encourage all of those around you to say yes a little more next year.
