    Wonderful Treat

    What a beautiful cookbook, full of bright and yummy pictures, and lot of good ideas!
    The book starts with the Introduction and then the first chapter is: Merry Morning Breakfast, delightful ideas for that special Holiday about some Apple and Sharp Cheddar Scones or Overnight Sausage and Caramelized Onions Casserole, with more. Then some ideas for Christmas Tea: Winter Tomato Pie, Glazed Lemon Thins, or Cinnamon Star Sugar Cookies. Then we have Appetizers: Caesar Salad Bites, or Christmas Eve Eggnog. Christmas and Christmas Eve Dinner: Cider-Glazed Roast Turkey, Three Cheese Scalloped Potatoes, Creamed Spinach and Feta Pie, and a lot more scrumptious recipes. Then everyone's favorite Christmas Desserts: Perfect Raspberry Squares, Great Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon Glaze, Green Tomato Mincemeat. Then last but not least are two Chapters that sound wonderful over the holiday...Cooking With Grandma and Easy Family Dinners. Included in all the Chapters are some Christmas Crafts. I listed on a few of the enticing recipes, you have got to see this book to enjoy it all!
    This could easily become a Coffee Table book over the Holidays! Enjoy!!

    I received this book from the publisher Harelquin, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Kiss the Cook~Stories, Crafts and Special Recipes

    The Dame's Summary of the Book in a Nutshell:

    When I went scouring my cookbook library shelves and hideouts this season, I just couldn't find the Christmas cookies and new baking ideas I wanted for a new holiday. It's the 21st century! I needed some inspiration!

    I went hunting and found "Debbie Macomber's Christmas Cookbook." The beautiful cover jumped off the bookstore shelf! Up until now, I have to admit not being a fan of Debbie's books. I'm not into ladies groups and small town chit-chat for novels. But, boy, does she know holiday stories and making holidays special with family and friends. This is a wonderful, picture and memory-making book to fill out the old and weary cookbook shelves of any household.

    Debbie's simple, yet beautiful cookies and delicious desserts are mouthwatering. But she also includes wonderful recipes for breakfast, brunch and munchies of the savory sort. And, while you're waiting for these to bake, her stories are so much fun and so heartwarming. Her easy to follow crafts ideas are as clearly pictured as her recipes. In fact, this book is beautifully pictured. It's of the coffee table quality for Christmas.

    I enjoyed Debbie's sense of humor and the times she cherishes with her grandchildren. I'm not able to spend time with my grandchildren since they live in four different States, and pretty far away from me, so although this book was sometimes bittersweet to read, it also was a reminder of when my children were young. A time when I was a young mother, baking Christmas cookies and decorating them with my little children in a Yankee Barn in New Hampshire while snow piled up 4 ft. high on our deck...

    This is a book that will find its way into your lap when you walk away from the kitchen to sit in your favorite chair crunching on your warm baked goods. It may find its way into your lap when you have a grandchild by your side.

    I think it's a book well worth purchasing this year.

    Happy Holidays...I wish I could send each of you a tin of my holiday lemon bars!

    This is a must in every home for the Holidays

    Whether you're looking for old favorites or new traditions to add to your Holiday table it will be in this wonderful cookbook. It covers anything and everything you need to make a Holiday table something special from Merry Morning Breakfasts to Cooking with Grandma, Baked Gifts and Crafts plus you'll find plenty of room in the back to add your own favorites to refer to year after year.
    Inside it's hardbound pages you will also find beautifully illustrated photos and many recipes that came down from Debbie's family. At the introduction to each section Debbie will tell a special story that will bring back your own special holiday moments and memories I know they did for me. It's obvious that she put something very special of herself inside this cookbook just like what her fans expect every time they open one of her novels and she takes this one step further by putting something very personal on each of these 240 pages of treats for the palate, the eyes and the stomach. She covers everything from sweet to savory and all the in between too from table setting, place holders and gifts from the oven and from the heart.
    To share a personal note, when mine arrived in the mail my mother happened to be visiting and she was planning on spending most of the Christmas season with my sister, but upon seeing the wonderful recipes inside the book she altered her plans and will be instead staying with me, which makes me very happy.
    It makes a wonderful gift as well as a keepsake and if you want your mother to spend the holidays with you make sure you have a copy she can see, or if you happened to want her to stay, say at your sister's home instead make sure you get your sister a copy for a very early Christmas present.
    If you didn't love Debbie Macomber before you will now as she shares with us a very personal part of herself. Thank you Debbie!

    Hunyers den was saggy couches and hairy rugs. The furniture is scatched. There is litterboxes in a corner. There is an overturned bin if cat toys on the coffee table. There is a small fuzzy t.v.

    Walks in locking the door to the house behind her before unlocking her truck and hopping in. She turns the engine on and backs out of the driveway and then heads to her work.~Holly
