Sweet Heat # 3

It's the 1st of the month which means it's that time again.....Yes it's time to announce this months Sweet Heat challenge (and it's also time to open the first door of your advent calander – woo hoo!)! I'm so excited about this months challenge as I think that I am being particularly generous and giving you a theme with endless options as to what you can spice up.....yes you probably have guessed but how could I resist and not pick Christmas as this months theme! That's right, I've put my Santa hat on early and thrown open the idea of making some spicy little Christmas recipes. That means it can literally be anything that you consider to be Christmassy so party food; chocolates; baking; edible gifts; soups; turkey or even a chilli themed Christmas decoration will fit the bill (trust me the idea did cross my mind of making a chilli garland as I was threading my chillies to dry a couple of months ago!!)'s up to you!

So there you go – how can you resist? Sweet Heat December is all about Christmas!

*This month you will have until December 27th to send your entries to me.


Even though it is Christmas the usual rules apply and as a reminder here they are......

  • You must mention Sweet Heat in your post with a link back to this site (and when applicable the host site).
