Looking for Christmas recipes and ideas? You are in the right place! There is lots of Christmas content on the blog and with the big day fast approaching, I wanted to make it easy to find. Just click on the links to go straight to whatever you are looking for.
I will be adding new content regularly, so keep an eye on the blog and watch this space!
Some of these recipes aren’t just for Christmas, it is just the time of year that I make them most. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t make them all year round. Even the Christmas cake is lovely made just as a fruit cake, with or without marzipan and frosting. And there are very few occasions when my Chocolate and Blueberry Pudding Cake is not a welcome sight after a celebratory meal.
Christmas Recipes -Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is often neglected on Christmas Day in favour of the feast to come, but I think it’s lovely to start off the day with something tasty.
Christmas Recipes – Stuffing
Although you can use my Apricot Pecan Stuffing to stuff a turkey, I like to cook it outside of the bird for a crunchier result. While this would mean it should be called ‘dressing’ instead of ‘stuffing’ in North America, in the UK there is no such distinction. We just call it stuffing regardless.
Christmas Recipes – Christmas Cookies
All of these cookies have appeared on my Christmas dessert trays over the years – but you will definitely find many of them in the cookie jar at other times of year as well.
Christmas Recipes – Christmas Squares and Traybakes
One of the things I loved most about our family Christmases in Canada were the dessert trays, full of cookies and “squares”. Here are some of my favourite recipes – including some that have been in my family for years.
Coconut Date and Cherry Christmas Squares – Naturally Gluten Free
Traditional Christmas Cakes are easier to make than you might think, but if you aren’t a fan of fruit cake, I have plenty of alternatives to offer!
These delicious desserts are a wonderful way to round out your Christmas feast. Be sure to leave some room!

Love Your Leftovers
Leftovers are such an important part of the days following Christmas in our house. I often buy more than I need just to make sure there are leftovers to enjoy.
