CookBlogShare Week 3 – Winter Warming Oven Bakes

Welcome to my first week hosting #CookBlogShare. This year I have taken over the reins of this wonderful blog link-up party to keep it going with Karen from Looking back over last week’s round-up of delicious recipes, I was overwhelmed with how many entries we had on Karen’s post. I have decided to make the theme of this post will be winter warming oven bakes.

There was a great range of delicious recipes which were all perfect to pop in and enjoy straight from the oven later. I think with this cold weather that it only works to pop the oven on, warm the kitchen while also cooking something yummy to warm us too.

#CookBlogShare Week 3

With the choice of recipes in last week’s link-up party, it was hard to narrow it down to my favourites to group together and mention on here. The range of dishes that were linked were incredible and reading through them all really made me really hungry. It was a great way to start the new year and Karen and I were so thankful to see so many of you linking up.

There were beautiful oven bakes, slow cooker meals and of course lots of my favourite sweet treats. As it’s still gloomy, grey and cold here in Surrey I have picked out the winter warming oven bakes that would warm my belly, soul and happily also my kitchen.

Savoury Winter Warming Oven Bakes

I’m not ready to give up on Christmas treats and the idea of upping the humble yet incredible sausage roll to one filled with rich and succulent venison has gone to the top of my wishlist. I give you the venison sausage rolls from The Rare Welsh Bit.

Venison is such an iconic flavour of Autumn and Winter and it’s great to see it made into a far more interesting and easier way to eat. The idea of the venison with flakey pastry would be something I could not say no to if it was in front of me. A delicious winter warming oven bake.

This beautiful Mediterranean Chicken Stew from Easy Peasy Foodie makes me feel like spring and summer is on the way. A lovely oven bake which looks rich, juicy and absolutely moreish.

Eb has created a lovely chicken stew which is not only packed full of vegetables which makes it healthy, but it can be on your plate in less than an hour. A lovely quick meal and I can’t wait to try it.

This quick and Easy Lasagne from Effortless Foodie is calling out to be enjoyed. I adore Lasagne but some recipes are overly complicated and seem to take hours. This recipe can be ready to serve in 45 minutes! Now that is my type of dinner. The addition of Smoked Paprika has really caught my eye and intrigued my taste buds.

Can you ever say no to a slice of chocolate cake? This gorgeous Easy Chocolate Button Cake from Farmersgirl Kitchen looks divine and has the massive plus of being a super simple recipe.

This chocolate cake will be great for a birthday or a wonderful treat for a weekend with friends and family. I could dive right in!

I love trying new cakes and this year I have decided to try more vegan and plant-based recipes. This Healthy Vegan Carrot Cake with Cashew Icing from Tin and Thyme really fits the bill. As this is filled with vegetables this traybake cake must be healthy right? I’d say so.

I love the way the carrot has given the finished cake a rich orange colour. I’m so tempted to try the carrot flavour with the cashew icing. I can imagine that combo being rather delicious.

This beautiful Gluten Free Angel Food Cake by Gluten Free Alchemist is almost too beautiful to slice in to. Almost.

I love the look of it, it’s picture-perfect. This Angel Food Cake is a uniquely light and fatless sponge made with egg whites and flavoured with vanilla. I love that this is both a gluten-free and dairy-free heavenly bake to make at home.

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my venison and red wine sausage rolls! I’m really enjoying being involved in this link-up. You seem to have built up a really friendly community here! 😀 x

  2. What a splendid theme. Winter warming oven bakes are just what we all need right now for a bit of cheer. Thanks for including my carrot cake – just wish there was some of it left.

  3. So many beautiful bakes! The weather and pretty dismal start of 2021 mean we are all craving comfort food right now, and these look just perfect.
