Is it good, or it is a regurgitation of feast and express? It looks so xmassy!! xx

According to the Grundian, it is indeed a regurgitation of Feast and othe tomes.

I had a quick open of it, but dd ran off so had to put it down, and the two recipes I saw I already had, so thought it might be sad

i have looked it it quickly in shop. has lots of nice pics but not much substance. mind you i thought that about express and have come around to several recipes in that - mini meatloves are super and a lot of the flavour mixes are new for her.

Ha ha, same here stacey-there is something so wholesome about her-and we are not even home for xmas-maybe we should have a trial xmas dinner a week early-to test table manners of course! wink

I have bought it (v cheap from Book people) because many of the recipes look like nice winter recipes rtather than purely xmas IYSWIM, so hopefully will be useful rather than just decorative. Also some nice foody gift ideas which I want to make.
