Welcome to the December 2018 edition of the Newsletter!

18 sleeps until Christmas! This year has just flown by so quickly for me! It seemed to be one thing after the other through out the whole year, including moving house last week. My intention was to have lots of new recipes and blog posts (especially for Christmas) on my Domestic Diva blog and on the Failsafe Table in time for this edition of the newsletter. Sorry to say for the long term failsafers, it may be the same old Christmas recipes in this edition, although very beneficial for all our new comers in conquering their first failsafe Christmas. I did search hard and found a few suitable new recipes!

The next edition will be in February 2019. Stay safe these holidays, enjoy the time with your family and friends.
Blessings this Christmas and into the New Year,
Rona Signature

Microwave Salted Caramel Fudge

Bake Play Smile: "The easiest 5 ingredient Microwave Salted Caramel Fudge recipe!! Super quick and totally delicious! I used to make fudge on the stovetop but now I’m a complete microwave convert. It honestly could not be any easier to make fudge in the microwave. Heat, stir, heat, stir… you get the point, right!?" [recipe link]

If you are after a Thermomix fudge recipe, I recommend the Salted caramel fudge from the Thermomix recipe Community. [recipe link]

~ "Families are like fudge, mostly sweet, with lots of nuts." ~ Unknown

Christmas Chicken Roll

chicken roll
Failsafe Foodie: "While I was deciding what to make I was thinking about all the different yummy foods that are usually eaten over the holidays and one of the things that came into my mind was those rolled pieces of pork that are stuffed with fruit and nuts and are sweet and moist with that naughty bit of crackling on the top. I have done a failsafe version of that. "How is that even possible?" you say. "Massive substitutions" I say; that and a bit of imagination." [recipe link]

Carob Mousse

Simply Failsafe: "This mousse is super easy to make and only takes a few hours to set in the fridge. Its a beautiful treat that would be perfect for special occasions (birthdays and Christmas etc) but made with pantry ingredients that would be whipped up for dessert during the week." [recipe link]

The Christmas Menu

Cooking for Oscar: "We’ve had three Christmas Days since we started the elimination diet in which we have hosted Christmas, helped cook at my parent’s place, taken our own food and gone it alone. But I do remember how hard the first two years were, so I’ve decide to pull together all the recipes I think could be used for Christmas celebrations, along with a few tips that I used to manage it." [recipe link]

Pear Mince Pies

Domestic Diva: "These little pies are divine! A great Failsafe diet alternative for fruit mince pies at Christmas time. Leaving them plain on top or a different shape cut with pastry can make them perfect for any occasion. Lovely served at room temperature or heated up with ice cream, custard or Whiskey Cream Sauce for a decadent dessert." [recipe link]

Gingerless Christmas Cookies

Kersten's Kitchen: These cookies are made like your usual gingerbread, we just need to leave out the spices to be low chemical. They are GF & DF. [recipe link]

White Chocolate Truffles

White-Chocolate-Truffles grid
Domestic Diva: Two versions of white truffles, cute ones for the kids and vodka ones for the adults. [recipe link]

White Chocolate Bark

Domestic Diva: This is something you can make as gifts for family and friends, take on a plate to share at a Christmas party or function, our just to indulge a little for yourself during the festive season. [recipe link]

Snowball Cookies

(Without Nuts)
The Semisweet Sisters: "I love Snowball Cookies, they look so appealing with all that fluffy powdered sugar coating. However, I don’t like nuts in my baked goods plus there are several people in my family with nut allergies so I wanted to make these with no nuts added. I didn’t know if it was possible but after looking at the recipe I noticed that it’s just a basic shortbread cookie with nuts in it. I omitted the nuts & it turned out just fine." [recipe link]

Failsafe Christmas 'gingerbread' Santa's

Fed Up: You won't know the ginger has been left out of these gingerbread shapes. Fun to make and good for a plate to take to a party. [recipe link]

Easy 3 Ingredient Shortbread

Create Bake Make: "I just love Christmas baking, and find it such a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. This easy 3 Ingredient Shortbread version is another great Christmas baking option. I know this is a ‘traditional’ recipe for Shortbread, however it really is a great recipe to make when you have limited supplies, and it’s also perfect for the kids to help you with".
Tradition and Thermomix methods available. [recipe link]

Panettone - Individual

Real Meals: "I am not going to claim this to be 'authentic', but I think the intention is clear. This is "Failsafe Panettone" and these can sit proudly at any Christmas table. Or pre-Christmas get-together. Or end-of-year gathering. Or... crikey... a birthday party!! (Waves to the December birthday peeps)." [recipe link]
