This week seems to be the week for recipes that never were. On Tuesday, I posted Snowflake Shortbread Cookies which were meant to be a recipe makeover of these Candy Cane Christmas Cookies and today I’m posting one of my favourite Starbucks Copycat recipes when I had intended to post a chocolate orange mocha coffee recipe.
I’m taking it a step up from the post I published last week – Stocking Filler Ideas for Foodies (Under $12!) – to Christmas gifts under $50 today. Hopefully last week’s post helped you buy a couple of little kitchen and cooking related gifts and now you want to move onto the big stuff. The stuff that will make the foodie in your life gasp and hug you for being so thoughtful.
There’s a bit of a story behind these snowflake shortbread cookies. Whilst they’re one of my favourite Christmas cookie recipes that I’ve made so far, they were a total pain to make. Not because the recipe is difficult – it really isn’t – but because I kept changing my mind about what I wanted to make.
It simply isn’t Christmas without roasted potatoes – well, it certainly isn’t in the Pink Recipe Box household. This recipe for roasted potatoes is my ultimate favourite and is guaranteed to give you light and fluffy centres that melt in your mouth, with crisp and crunchy outsides that will have you eager for more.
Any of you who regularly follow Pink Recipe Box will know that I never need an excuse to publish cocktail recipes, but the insatiable urge that makes me want to pile spirits, juice and fizzy stuff into a glass and top it off with something sparkly goes into hyper-drive at this time of year. With so many Christmas cocktail recipes and New Year’s Eve cocktail recipes buzzing about in my mind, I feel like I’m going to explode!
