I recently shared my apple and sultana strudel recipe, a favourite pastry of mine to stuff my face with during the Autumn. Now I’m going to share a seasonal update to this with my Festive Brie and Cranberry Bites – something I become addicted to making and eating every Christmas. I can’t remember now where I got the recipe from (props to one of the supermarket magazines though) but it is one of the best, so easy and tastes just like Christmas in a puff pastry.
I’m guessing this is the length of a leek, because at 38 weeks pregnant I would be worried if baby was the weight or width of a leek! As everything I read keeps saying, now is just a waiting game, there’s no more I can do even though I feel completely unprepared.
I have a real sweet tooth, even more so in the latter stages of pregnancy, but I’m in no way a baker. I don’t have the patience or precision when it comes to cooking, which is essential when baking as we can all probably admire from the Great British Bake Off.
Even during the summer I love my comfort food, which isn’t ideal when it’s 28 degrees outside and what feels like 280 degrees in my windpipe thanks to my lovely pregnancy friend, Heartburn, but there are ways of combining comfort food with fresh and light summer flavours to get the best of both worlds.
