This recipe keeps your turkey moist and full of flavour. You can also use this recipe for chicken.

These are about the only thing I go all out for at Christmas. The little pies are full of memories-the recipe is adapted from a family one. I mix it up with the dried fruit a bit - my current mince has dried cranberries in it - but use whatever dried fruits you want. I also cut star shapes out of the pastry for the top of each tart. Make the mince about a month beforehand.

These are great at Halloween. I use cake and icing mix to make it quicker but of course you can use your own recipes for these. Watch this recipe being made on Allrecipes Halloween Cupcakes Video.

This crispy no-cook slice is great to make with kids. A few pieces wrapped in cellophane can make a great Christmas pressie for them to give-that's if the adults haven't eaten them all first.
