If you think about Christmas year round this just might be the book for you. With the subtitle “Favorite Recipes and Holiday Traditions from My Home To Yours” it is very clear that the subject is Christmas and nothing else.
After a brief introduction, the book is broken up into seven chapter sections devoted to the day itself and everything around that day. From various menu choices at breakfast in the “Merry Morning Breakfast” chapter to different types of teas and appetizers, to the “Christmas and Christmas Eve Dinner” chapter the day is covered food wise. Not to mention “Christmas Desserts” of all types as well as the many ideas in “Cooking with Grandma.”
A multi page index and several blank pages for your own recipes bring this good 240 page cookbook to a close. Lots of colorful photos, tips, small craft projects and delectable treats make this a good cookbook. The lack of nutritional information is disappointing and a negative to another wise excellent book.
