It's Christmas! Let's be glad.

Merry Christmas, everyone! I'm so, so excited about starting B&J - the countless inspiring blogs out there that have been paving the way for awesome music, mixes literature, film and other nifty things have meant that this paticular brand new blog has been a long time coming.

Cue the hot chocolate, fairy lights, carols, obligatory Sufjan Stevens christmas CDs, and of course, ridiculously delicious food.

A recipie to make your Christmas all the more merry:

Captain Morgan's Ice Cream Cake

1/2 cup of Captain Morgan's Jamaican rum
A whole carton of Cookies & Cream ice cream
2-4 large squares of ready-made spongecake

Use a tablespoon to evenly distribute the rum onto the surface of the first large slice of spongecake. Wait 2-3 minutes to allow it to soak. Use a large spoon to spread the ice cream across the top of each slice of cake - it's okay if the ice cream ends up a bit lumpy because of the cookie bits, you can always squish the ice cream down later with the next layer of cake. Keep repeating this method until you've added as many layers as you want, or possibly can - the higher it's able to stack, the better!

Now a quick last-minute Christmas mix:

The Weepies - All I Want
Jimmy Eat World - Christmas Card
No Doubt - Oi To The World
Joey Ramone - Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight)
Friends - Pheobe's Holiday Song
Sufjan Stevens - Sister Winter
