Fabulous Foodie Fridays – The 2015 Wrap Up!

I can’t believe it’s the final Fabulous Foodie Fridays party of 2015. Today we’re popping the champas and celebrating the best of the best recipes from this years link ups. It was virtually impossible to choose just 5 recipes, but here are my absolute faves! Thank you to everyone who has made FFF such a success – we have loved seeing your delicious recipes every week.

First up is this amazing Rocky Road Cheesecake from Zamamabakes. This is just the most amazing creation and I can’t wait to make it over Christmas.

With the weather warming up, it’s definitely time to make this Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream Pie from Sweetest Menu. Get in my belly!

I’m a massive pasta fan and after Plus Ate Six linked up her Easy Pork Ragu earlier this year, I’ve made it about 8 times. No joke. It’s so darn good.

The gorgeous Love Swah blew me away with her Nutella Stuffed Choc Chip Cookies. Love, love, love them!

And I couldn’t possibly finish my favourite recipes without one from my blogging/business bestie, Lauren from Create Bake Make. She makes blogging so much fun and I just love everything she makes (including of course this Malteser Fudge).

Again thank you all so much for joining in with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party. We just love you all to bits!

I know last week I said that we would be back with Fabulous Foodie Fridays on the 14th January 2016, but after a few long chats, Lauren and I have decided that we’re going to take the WHOLE of January off (yep, we’re taking a nice long break… and we think you should too!!). Have a wonderful Christmas and we’ll see you next year! xx
