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!

Debbie Macomber is truly in her element when it comes to all things Christmas! Her beautiful new "Debbie Macomber's Christmas Cookbook" is exquisitely evocative of favorite family memories and freshly appealing "traditions in the making". Much more than a holiday cookbook, it also offers decorating, craft, and gift ideas that are both simple and sensational. The recipes are mouth-watering, each one with that touch of something extra that you look for when preparing holiday foods. To please the palate: "Tropical Paradise Muffins"; "Overnight Sausage & Caramelized Onion Casserole"; "Cider-Glazed Roast Turkey"; "Three-Cheese Scalloped Potatoes"; "Roast Pork Tenderloin with Dijon-Molasses Glaze"; and "Winter Tomato Pie". The recipe showstopper for me was "White Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake"--I love peppermint for the holidays! Decorate a big, beautiful gift basket for someone special and first put in a copy of this book. Surround the book with little tubs of "Soothing Scented Lip Balm, tuck in some "Bubbling Bath Cubes" and "Pinecone Fire Starters". Add in a jar of "Many Bean Soup Mix", some "Do It Yourself Spice Blend" packets, and a tin of "Homemade Chai Tea Mix". Most important of all, don't forget the cookies. Lots of little holiday gift bags of wonderful, wonderful cookies. The final touch: A handmade holiday card for an extra-special seasonal sentiment. I think I just figured out what Santa is bringing me this year!

Now she shares more than one hundred of her favorite recipes to help you enjoy this most joyous of seasons.

What makes this cookbook unique is Debbie's personal memories and observations. Join her as she reminisces about traditions past and present, and discover the craft ideas she herself uses.
