A Tasty Partridge in a Pear Tree!

Updated: Feb 16

I adore the holidays! The gorgeous lights, the festive parties, and of course, the food!

Food is my family’s love language so our gift giving and holiday celebrations are food centered. From homemade treats to opulent feasts, our love language gains momentum around the holidays. Which brought about my inspiration to create 12 simple recipes in the theme of the “12 Days of Christmas” song!

  • Day 1: A partridge in a pear tree

  • Day 2: Two turtle doves

  • Day 3: Three French hens

  • Day 4: Four calling birds

  • Day 5: Five golden rings

  • Day 6: Six geese a-laying

  • Day 7: Seven swans a-swimming

  • Day 8: Eight maids a-milking

  • Day 9: Nine ladies dancing

  • Day 10: 10 lords a-leaping

  • Day 11: 11 pipers piping

  • Day 12: 12 drummers drumming

Here we go!
