My gosh! Where does the time go? Here it is December 4 with time quickly ticking away to Christmas Day and New Year's. Folks are busy shopping, entertaining and socializing. I'm going to do a bit of a shift here for the rest of December to focus on some of the food related topics of interest for the holidays. These topics include: gifts from the kitchen, holiday entertaining, holiday recipes and so much more. I've compiled a list of our favourite Christmas cookies, sure to become your favourites as well. They are perfect for gift giving, holiday entertaining or filling Santa's plate. There are several recipes in the archives for appetizers suitable for holiday entertaining as well. I plan to add a few healthy or healthier alternatives for those who are currently watching their weight or hoping to avoid that seasonal weight gain. Just wait until you read about one simple, yet effect method I use! A couple of the gifts from the kitchen involve a crafty touch. Stay tuned for the holiday fun starting Friday...
