I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! All that build up, months of planning, crafting, shopping, wrapping and baking... and it's finally over for another year. If you're anything like me, you bought far too much food and now have tupperware boxes full of leftover veg, cupboards bursting with Christmas chocolates, pieces of various cheeses wrapped in cling film and half full jars of condiments that only get eaten once a year. To help you clear out and avoid food waste I have found a collection of recipes to inspire you to use up all those Christmas leftovers...

Oh boy I've eaten so much. Merry Christmas Kat!
We had quite a frugal Christmas as we were both ill, so all of this sounds very appealing.
great ideas - I have cranberry sauce and brie so am eying off these tartlets - cranberry sauce is always hard to use once christmas is past - and I know I would love the leek, potato and cheese pie too!
