The Deal of a Lifetime by Fredrik Backman, Penguin, RRP $19.99 It is Christmas Eve and a father tells his son about a courageous little girl lying in a hospital bed.

The result is an immensely warm, poignant, funny and moving book about love in all its guises, including observations, reflections and stories of people falling into love.

FESTIVE PRAWN AND AVOCADO COCKTAIL SALAD

CHRISTMAS FARE THAT TICKS ALL THE BOXES You’re stressed, busy, no time to spare and Christmas is just around the corner. You’re wondering how to cater. How will you find time to prepare and how can you celebrate in style on a budget? Why not consider putting together a Christmas picnic? Think local produce and products, delicious cheeses, crackers, meats, condiments and sweet treats. Add in nuts, chocolates, local craft beers, ciders and wines – the possibilities are many. If you’re getting together with friends, why not take a box of goodies to cater for the afternoon nibblies, grazing dinner or party food? Or perhaps a festival-style treat filled with rocky road, Christmas fudge and yummy biscuits. Whatever you’re planning this year, keep it simple but treat yourself – go on, you deserve it!

Christmas Day can be hectic, hot and humid so sometimes catering for the day can be a little overwhelming. Nambour RSL Club’s new executive chef, Chadd Kitto, has created a fresh, simple and delicious dish you can serve up as an entrée, along with your main meal or as a post-feast supper on Christmas night. This recipe serves four.

We love Locally owned business SunSHINE Boxes creates delectable boxes of heaven to give you a taste of what the Sunshine Coast has on offer. Perfect for gifts, or for picnicking, order at sunshineboxes.com.au.

SALAD INGREDIENTS • 1 large cos lettuce (finely sliced) • 2 ripe avocados • 1 large Lebanese cucumber (sliced) • 16 Mooloolaba king prawns (cooked and peeled) • 2 navel oranges (segmented) COCKTAIL SAUCE INGREDIENTS • 1 cup egg mayonnaise • 60ml tomato sauce • 20ml Worcestershire sauce • 8 drops of Tabasco sauce • Squeeze lemon juice METHOD Make the cocktail sauce by combining all ingredients in a bowl and mixing well. Toss cos lettuce, avocados and cucumber in a bowl and dress generously with the cocktail sauce. Portion into four separate bowls. Evenly distribute prawns and orange segments onto each salad and dress with a little more cocktail sauce.

CHRISTMAS BAKED SALMON RECIPE SUPPLIED BY SEAFOOD MARKET @ CALOUNDRA INGREDIENTS SALMON • 1.2kg-1.5kg salmon side (skin on, bones removed) • 2¼ tsp salt • 1 tsp black pepper HONEY BUTTER GLAZE • 150g butter unsalted • ½ cup honey • 3 garlic cloves (finely minced)

CREAMY DILL SAUCE • 1½ cups full-fat sour cream • ½ cup fresh dill, finely chopped • ½ eschalot, finely grated • 1½ tbsp lemon zest • ½ tsp salt • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil HOLIDAY TAPENADE • 1 cup orange juice • 1 cup dried cranberries • 1 cup slivered almonds (toasted) • 1/3 cup parsley (roughly chopped) • ¼ tsp each salt and pepper • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

FINISHING • 1 pomegranate (seeds only) • ¼ cup parsley, roughly chopped • 3 tbsp lemon juice • 2 lemons, cut in 6 pieces each METHOD CREAMY DILL SAUCE: Mix ingredients until smooth. Refrigerated until required. HOLIDAY TAPENADE: Heat juice in a saucepan over high heat. Turn off heat, add cranberries, cover, stand 15 minutes, then drain in a colander. Mix together cranberries, toasted almonds, parsley, salt and olive oil. SALMON: Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Place a sheet of foil on a tray, top with baking paper. Place salmon on paper, fold up sides to cup them so the glaze won’t run onto tray.

CHRISTMAS PORK WITH CRACKLING RECIPE SUPPLIED BY FRESH MEATS

Serves 6-8

GLAZE: Place ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once it starts to foam, turn down to medium and boil for two minutes, remove and pour straight over the salmon. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Cover salmon with a smaller piece of paper then foil. Fold and seal up sides to enclose salmon in a parcel. Bake 15 minutes and remove salmon from oven. Fold paper and foil down to expose salmon surface. Grill on high. Place salmon on middle shelf and broil seven to 10 minutes until caramelised. Transfer onto plate. Loosely cover with foil and leave to cool. To serve, thickly spread with creamy dill sauce. Pile over the tapenade, scatter with pomegranate seeds and then remaining parsley. Squeeze over lemon juice. Serve with extra lemon wedges.

INGREDIENTS • 2kg boneless or bone-in pork shoulder • Dried sage METHOD Preheat oven to 240 degrees. Season meat and skin generously with cracked pepper, sea salt flakes and dried sage. Transfer pork to a roasting dish and roast for 50 minutes. Reduce temperature to 160 degrees and roast for a further 90 minutes. Increase the temperature back up to 230 degrees and roast for a final 10 minutes, or until the rind has turned into a golden crackling and the pork is cooked through. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
