EAT YOUR BOOKS Lifetime membership giveaway (CLOSED)

Last night Mr Chipconnoisseur’s Mum and Dad surprised me with one of the most special gifts I could have wished for: a host of Polish traditions was incorporated into our Christmas Eve dinner. We had straw under the tablecloth to symbolise the manger, there was an extra chair for the weary traveller who might turn up needing a place to stay for the night and, this was my favourite part, the breaking of the bread with blessings. It was so sweet I cried…

My favourite dessert is a chocolate ganache cake consisting of layers of hazelnut meringue and whipped cream flavoured with chocolate ganache, then topped with chocolate ganache. I learnt it in a French cooking class at East Sydney Tech in the late 80s and have made it many times since. It is delicious beyond imagination and is my all time favourite.

I Love EYB! My favourite moment this Christmas is viewing an illumination with my husband, sister and mum while with them in Tokyo. They are huge light displays and absolutely beautiful.

Tory Huth December 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

At the moment I am loving fruit desserts. For Christmas I made a sour cream butter cake with poached apple and rhubard in the bottom. Served with natural yoghurt it was the perfect not too sweet, not too heavy cake.

Alicia Basa December 26, 2012 at 5:45 pm

My fave sweet dessert is Leche Flan, it beings back so many wonderful childhood recipes and tastes absolutely divine :)

Terri December 27, 2012 at 1:20 am

Having the first Christmas eve at our cabin with just me and fiance, listening to Christmas music, having a fire and making an amazing dinner!

My favorite memory this Christmas was watching my two-year-old get excited about the Christmas lights on our house and open all her presents! My favorite dessert is a GF Yule Log.

Kelly December 28, 2012 at 3:58 am

My favorite moment this Christmas was just being included with my husband’s family.

Maria December 28, 2012 at 5:55 pm

My favorite sweet dessert is crème brûleé and I would love to get a more healthy recipe!

Marin December 29, 2012 at 8:56 am

My favourite dessert is cherry pie – not just any cherry pie, but my mom’s recipe that I make for the family for Christmas every year. Look at that, a dessert AND a Christmas moment.

Linda S. December 29, 2012 at 10:10 am

My favorite dessert this time of year is panettone. Or cranberry raisin tart.

Steph December 30, 2012 at 9:47 pm

The best part of Christmas was catching up with my dad’s side of the family-around 26 of us-and finding out that my cousin is pregnant with her first child. It was just such a wonderful day, and with amazing home-cooked food too!

Melanie Reaves January 1, 2013 at 2:18 pm

Just found your site and am excited to follow you and try some recipes!

Allison January 2, 2013 at 8:35 am

My favorite moment this Christmas season actually came after a slight travel nightmare– my flight home to California (from visiting my family in Wisconsin) got canceled on Christmas morning, and I had to spend nearly 5 hours on the phone and standing in line at the airport, sorting out my replacement tickets for the next day– but getting an unexpected extra afternoon and evening to spend a little more quality time with my family made it all worth it!

Jen January 2, 2013 at 9:52 pm

My favorite part was watching my kids faces when hey opened their presents. So cute.

Emma January 4, 2013 at 12:37 am

My favourite moment at Xmas is when all the relatives flock around my travelling plate of mince pies fresh from the oven, they all say it’s the only time they have homemade ones (despite them being so easy) and it’s so heartwarming to give them all a yummy treat :)

Sarah S January 4, 2013 at 10:22 am

My favorite low sugar dessert is plain old dark chocolate!

John January 4, 2013 at 2:33 pm

My favorite Christmas moment was watching my 8 month old son joyfully wrestling with tissue paper. In his opinion it was better than anything else in the box!

bigbadbrandini January 5, 2013 at 5:20 am

My favorite Christmas moment was when my 4 year old sang the 12 days of Christmas to me. Precious!

tiffanyplus3 January 5, 2013 at 11:32 am

Woohoo would love to win! My favorite christmas moment was the kids singing christmas carols :)
