12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE

Eggnog French Toast Casserole

🎄LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎄 DAY 12 Christmas morning is covered, friends. The best part about overnight casseroles like this one is that your breakfast is pretty much 90% done — all you have to do is pop it in the oven as soon as you crawl out of your cozy bed on Christmas morning. […]

Homemade Irish Cream

❄LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas❄ DAY 11 I definitely was not the only one to have a phase during the pandemic that was coffee-centric; sionara Starbucks and helloooo at-home barista! With this recipe, I wanted to highlight a familiar flavour that reminds me of Christmas evenings and also as a chance to remind my lovely […]

Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Gravy

🎁 LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎁 DAY 10 Have you ever wondered what the reality of writing a food blog is reaaaaally like? I test and pivot around obstacles that are bound to happen in the kitchen so that you don’t have to endure those yourselves. Although I’d like to think I am the Barefoot […]

Red Beet Soup with Mushroom Dumplings // Barszcz Czerwony i Uszka

🎅 LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎅 DAY 9 A common soup made many different ways depending on where you live in Europe. In Polish? we call it BARSZCZ, say it with me guys! Baaaaa-rsh-ch. A very clean soup packed with layers of flavour and featuring a mighty, yet humble veg: beets. Barszcz was another staple […]

Cioppino (Fisherman’s Stew)

🎅LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎅 DAY 7 This one is for all my seafood lover’s out there. A relatively quick stew that can be made within an hour, that doesn’t break the bank, but definitely makes you feel like you’re dining under some twinkly lights in San Francisco at night. The nice thing is that […]

Orange and Cardamom Softie Cookies

🎄 LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎄 DAY 6 Christmas cookies hold a special place in my heart. My mom, the ultimate baker, would always take the time to bake jam thumbprints, chocolate shortbread, or if we were super lucky, Polish Rogaliki (my absolute favourite without a doubt) over the Christmas break. As kids, we would […]

Red Moon Over Manhattan & Vanilla Whiskey Soaked Cherries

☃LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas☃ DAY 5 Soooooo, this may be my new favourite cocktail. I can picture myself sipping this on Christmas Eve night, listening to some jazzy carols and with the fireplace lighting up the room with a cozy glow. I love that this cocktail includes red wine and a very winter appropriate […]

Seared Scallops with Brown Butter

🎁 LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎁 DAY 4 Last year for 12 Days of LG,BE, I sprinkled in a few different fancy schmancy proteins since it is after all the holidays…but also because I just love trying new seafood dishes and this one has become very popular for me at home as of late. We […]

Potato, Gruyere & Thyme Tart

🎅LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎅 DAY 3 Does anybody else get super excited when they see something with puff pastry? Or is that just me? Puff pastry makes me think of fine-dining restaurants or super chic brunches with the girls. It adds an element of sophistication and really is not too hard of a product […]

DIY Shrimp Cocktail

❄LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas❄ DAY 2 For as long as I can remember, we almost always had a shrimp ring for an appetizer as part of my family’s meatless Christmas Eve feast. An odd choice some may say, but for kids who were quickly learning how addicted we were to seafood at a young […]

A Mozzarella & Garlic Bread Christmas Tree

🎄LG,BE’s 12 Days of Christmas🎄 DAY 1 It’s tiiiiiiime. DECEMBER! IT’S HERE. & it’s go time. There was no way I wasn’t going to start with this appetizer because let me tell you right now, you will be making it more than once. If you’re like my friends and family, then you also love snacky […]

Mom’s Pancakes

12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE Day 12: We’ve made it to Day 12 foodie friends!! What a fun writing and cooking challenge this has been for myself and for my family and loved ones who got to “test-drive” some of the recipes along the way with me. Some of these recipes were obviously not […]

Chocolate & Raspberry “Trifles”

12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE Day 11: When I think of trifles, I think of the food queen herself — Nigella Lawson — explaining the components of an authentic English trifle and how she made it seem like the most perfected masterpiece of all the British desserts that exist. But trifle takes time.. and […]

Filet Mignon with Peppercorn Cream Sauce

12 Days of Christmas with LG,BE Day 10: An evening winter grill, anyone? I got really luxe with my lobster fettuccine earlier this week, but I also figured it’s pretty fair to share a luxe ‘turf’ option too. In my boyfriend’s opinion? That always means FILET + since I’m the ‘mastermind behind flavour’ according to […]
