12 recipes to inspire you this Christmas

Have you tried some of the recipes from Jenny Roja‘s Food Advent Calendar, “Spice It Up!”? I have. Each day a food blogger from across the globe posts their spice inspired recipe on the advent calendar and we are already half way through. Check out the 12 recipes so far and start cooking.

I made a Native Australian Anise Myrtle Cherry Jam (and included a recipe for Start Anise Cherry Jam for those of you who can’t get the Anise Myrtle) and so far I have been able to use it in several recipes.

Like in Jenny’s Linzer Cookies.


and Markus from Earth Food and Fire Braised Red Cabbage with Blueberry and Cloves recipe.


Braising the cabbage with Star Anise Cherry Jam

I am yet to try it with December 8, Candi from Make Ahead Meal Mom Spiced Cranberry Pork Roast. But that is what I love about recipes.  They inspire, get you trying something new and open your mind to the endless possibilities.

Take a look at the list and be inspired.
