Christmas Cranberry and Orange Loaf [vegan]

Is it me or is Christmas getting earlier each year? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas, but just not in November. I’m about to contradict myself majorly because this loaf cake is PERFECT for Christmas, and technically we’re not quite in December territory yet…my bad! […]

Gingerbread Granola Bars

Gingerbread Granola Bars

It’s nearly Christmas!!!! Woohoo! I’m mainly excited about the time off work – not having a routine, going for dog walks and watching loads of films. I know my motto most Christmasses has been to eat, drink and be merry, but that does nothing for my tummy […]

This time last year I was wrapping up my Christmas presents with newspaper and the idea of this blog slowly began forming in my mind. One year later, a leap into veganism and the death of all our four rescue hens (who we are very […]

Wrapped in Newspaper’s 12 days of Christmas: Homemade Christmas Crackers

Here at Wrapped in Newspaper we try to avoid the trappings of a consumerist, commercialised Christmas. We don’t want stuff for the sake of stuff that will only get thrown away once its novelty has worn off. Christmas crackers are a excellent example of this. […]

Braised Red Cabbage

Braised Red Cabbage

There are so many delicious parts to a Christmas dinner that its hard to pick out a favourite but braised red cabbage has to be up there. There’s something about the smell of Christmassy spices and the rich flavour of braised cabbage that tells all […]

Wrapped in Newspaper’s 12 days of Christmas: Homemade Wreath

Ok, technically this isn’t a wreath as it isn’t ‘wreath’ shaped, who cares? I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out. Christmas wreaths are the ideal way to introduce a bit of a festive feel to your front door. Bought ones, I think, can look […]
