Fabulous Foodie Fridays #80

Hi there! Can you believe it’s December!? How crazy is that! What’s been happening in your world? Have you started the craziness of Christmas parties yet? If you’re stuck for any Christmas cooking inspiration, then our Fabulous Foodie Fridays is definitely the place for you.

I love these Sticky Date Cookies from The Annoyed Thyroid. They would make a yummy little food gift… if you could bear to part with them!

For a kid-friendly party food idea, you just can’t beat these Fruit Salad and Meringue Waffle Cones from The Multitasking Woman – I mean, everything tastes better in a waffle cone, right!?

Oooh these Fish Tacos from The Purple Ladle would make the best midweek dinner. Yum!

I don’t do a huge amount of gluten-free cooking, but after seeing these Pear, Hazelnut & Chocolate Muffins from Plus Ate Six, I think I need to start.

Finally, for a super yummy dinner, you just can’t go wrong with a bowl of Thai Chicken Fried Rice from La Petit Chef. Gosh it looks good!
