#FoodYearLinkup – December 2015

Welcome to December’s #FoodYearLinkup, the place to share and discover posts about foodie events in December.

Food Year Linkup December 2015

Before I get going with this month’s linkup I wanted to share my favourite post from November’s #FoodYearLinkup.

Once again there was a fabulous selection of posts linked up, and I couldn’t pick my favourite, so I picked two 🙂 . Firstly there was this pumpkin soup from Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist. For starters it sounds delicious, especially the chunks of roasted pumpkin and the sprinkling of roasted pumpkin seeds on top.

Secondly there were these shortbread kilts from Claire at Foodie Quine for St Andrew’s Day – they’re just so cute.

So what’s the theme this month?

As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for December. It’s a pretty quiet month for events as everyone’s thinking about Christmas, but I’ve already seen some brilliant festive foodie posts about for the past month so I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone has been creating.

1-31 December – Scottish Year of Food and Drink – Farm Shops Month

25 December – Christmas Day

31 December – New Year’s Eve

If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments so I don’t get confused 🙂 .

To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…

  1. Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
  2. To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
  3. Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do it would be great if you would go and comment on one other post for each one you link).

I’d also love it if you’d add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).

Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.

So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…

Before I go…

I’ve been busy adding events into the calendar so make sure you take a look and see what’s new.


  1. That for this #FoodYearLinkup i will endeavour to lil to each event! At ;east I’ll try – HNY

    • Every event, that’s ambitious! I hardly ever seem to tie up my new recipes to events but I like to know when they are just in case I feel like creating something special.

      HNY to you too xx

  2. Just added some speedy sausage rolls perfect for New Year Nibbles! Also dairy/soya & egg free and gluten free with some tweaking! Just sat in bed with a coffee going through all the lovely looking recipes on your site with Daddy Peacock who is bookmarking all the ones I HAVE to make him! hehe!

    Happy New Year xxx

    • Aw thanks, I hope you enjoy the recipes.

      Thanks for linking up your sausage rolls, they look delicious. I hope to see you here again with more recipes next month.

      Happy New Year xx

  3. I have just added my 4 x festive recipes to the link-up! Happy New Year! Karen

  4. Just added my last Christmas recipe – another leftovers one – think that’s my last one – sadly I didn’t quite make it to 10 😉 Ah well there’s always next year 🙂 Merry Christmas!! Eb x

  5. Just popped up a couple of Christmas leftovers recipes – hope that fits OK with the Christmas theme?!? Eb x

  6. Hi Charlotte. Plucked up the courage to link up with all the other amazing recipes. I have linked 3 recipes which I think would make a perfect, easy boxing day lunch for anyone who has had enough of slaving over the cooker by then x

    • Courage? I hope my linkup isn’t scary!! 🙂

      I love your recipes – I still think that Christmas Extract was genius. No need to worry, you fit right in and I hope to see you here again soon xx

  7. Hi Charlotte, just linked up with my Cranberry & Marzipan Star Bread. Looking forward to blog hopping with the festive recipes, my favourite time of year x

    • It looks stunning Sarah and sounds delicious too. Thanks for joining, I’m looking forward to seeing what else you’re baking over the Christmas period x

  8. Thank you so much for featuring my Soup Charlotte. And thank you for hosting!

    • No problem, thanks for joining in. Your soup sounds so delicious and the pictures were so pretty and vibrant I couldn’t resist including them xx

  9. Hi Charlotte, just added a homemade Stollen and Christmas Pudding and Brandy Sauce Ice cream to your link-up, i’m sure you know what they’re for 😉

  10. Oooh 10 posts – there’s a challenge!!!! Am linking up my Warm Christmas Rice Salad with Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Seeds and Easy Peasy Christmas Turkey Traybake for um…Christmas! You probably didn’t need me to tell you that but I like to follow the rules 😉 Eb x

  11. Not really an event that I can see people getting on board with, but I have been planning some treats for the release of the new Star Wars film on 17th December! Although my storm trooper cookies looked more like a bad weather report than anything resembling an army.

    Should we link up ALL our Christmas recipes (xmas carrots, xmas roasts, xmas ham…) or pick our favourite and link up that??
