Gingerbread Granola Bars

Wrapped in Newspaper’s 12 days of Christmas: Spiced Christmas Biscuits

I’ve been making these spiced biscuits for as long as I can remember. In recent years they’ve become synonymous with Christmas, with their subtle taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice they make perfect Christmas presents. Year after year they go down a treat and I […]

Wrapped in Newspaper’s 12 days of Christmas: Vegan Yule Log

Christmas day in our house is a day full of food and drink.  We get on the booze about 11am, get cracking with dinner, eat about 2pm, clean up, have a cup of tea and then give our gifts to each other. Then we have a […]
