Our favourite holiday recipes in a free e-book

Print Friendly

Making homemade gifts is one way to simplify the season

In our newest e-book you’ll find some of my favourite molasses cookie recipes and a selection of other homemade treats that are perfect for gift giving. As well, the book includes our best recipes for appetizers that are great for Holiday entertaining.

It’s like having the “Holiday” tab in my mom’s big black recipe binder gathered into a handy little book. Just looking through it reminds me of the countdown to Christmas when I was little. Even the appetizer section takes me back. (Passing meatballs at my parents’ holiday cocktail parties, trying not to tip the tooth picks over).
