Welcome to our very first Christmas tree trimming party. This is collaboration from across many miles. From Canada, the United States to India and France. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to enjoy our selection of Christmas recipes. You will find recipes for breakfast, appetizer, dinner and dessert. You cannot go wrong with a vast selection like this.

My name is Sarah and I’m the French one here 😉 I am delighted and excited and very happy to be part of this Christmas! I blog at The Cook whoPhotographed and I recentlyswitchedmydiet to a vegetarianone.  I inventrecipes, which are mostlyvegan or vegetarian and gluten free. I try to feedmyselfwithhealthyorganicfoods, home grown or local grownfoods. I studyintellectualpropertylawalongwithbeing a foodphotographer. I love cooking too and all I wishis to communicatemy passion for good and healthyfood. I come from France, a country wherefoodphotographyis not as popular as itisoverseas. I workwith Stock Food and maybesomeday, I’llbe able to host workshops and feedmyfamilythanks to my passion.

Hi I am Anu and my blog is . Although our beliefs are different, we as a family definitely enjoy the holiday season and Christmas day. As soon as lights go up in the neighborhood, the festive spirit and anticipation of the celebration begins! My daughters love decorating the Christmas tree, writing to Santa and await eagerly for their presents. My younger daughter who is 6 for sure believes in Santa and insists on placing a snack and a carrot in the kitchen ready for his visit 🙂 There have been times when either myself or my husband are at work and therefore don’t get to become involved with any happenings. If otherwise however, we tend to invite friends over for dinner, since our families live in India.


My dishes I’m presenting here are – vegan, gluten-free beverage and dessert – Persimmon Banana Smoothie and a Raw Persimmon Tart. I am so excited to be sharing this with you all. Determining the dishes which had to be vegan and gluten-free was a challenge, however I do hope you will enjoy my dishes. Merry Christmas to you all! Let the party begin!

Please find the links to my recipes below:

 Merry Christmas my name is Cherie and I blog at I welcome you to our Christmas Tree Trimming party.
