270: Christmas food special with Sarah Rossi (aka Taming Twins)
Christmas eating is great, but Christmas cooking can be stressful. Joining us with her top tips for creating calm in the kitchen is Sarah Rossi, aka @TamingTwins!
She shares easy make-ahead recipes for starters and desserts, and a great idea for what to feed picky eaters on the big day. We talk about how we should all be getting into dump bags, which are nicer than they sound. Ellie reveals how Sarah's 15 minute Baileys cheesecake saved her Christmas last year, along with her theory that organised people are secretly the laziest bastards of all. Helen learns what a Snowball is, and her mind is blown.
You can find Sarah's recipes for easy roast potatoes and slow cooker chocolate orange pudding on her blog, along with loads of other fantastic Christmas recipes. Her books, What's for Dinner? and What's for Dinner in One Pot? are out now, and they're bloody brilliant.
