I think I was extremely lucky to be born in the era I was. Sadly, today’s children don’t often get to experience what we did back then, with the flurry of excited baking, with family all around us, preparing for Christmas Day.
It got me to thinking that it was time to release my collection of Christmas recipes. I actually wrote this book some years ago, and sold it on a Christmas specific site, but that site closed down years ago, and I put the book to the back of my mind.
Writing that story last week reminded me of the recipe book, and I decided to once again share my recipes with everyone. The recipes go back – in some cases – generations. Many of them came from my mother-in-law, who got them from her mother, who got them from her mother and so on. Some came from my mother, with the same scenario.
I have been making all of those recipes for over 40 years. I’ve already made one Christmas cake, and will do the next one in a few days time.
Because I want to share my recipes and the joy that comes with them, I’ve kept the price as low as Amazon will let me go – 99c. If you’re in KU, it’s there too.
Most of all, I hope you have as much fun with your Christmas baking as I do every year.
