Ouch, the temperature which was balmy this morning is rapidly changing to the brrrrrrrrrrr side of chilly and it is only lunch time and supposed to dip even lower...Ouch! Winter is quickly making its presence felt!
WITH only 50 days until Christmas morning arrives, it is time to begin thinking of what your going to be serving in the way of Christmas eats, and no better time than right now to begin preparing those special treats your so famous for!
Cold weather makes me remember coming in from playing outside and the aroma of something delicious having made an appearance in the kitchen! Hot soups, pot pies, casseroles, cookies, pies and hot chocolate with marshmallows, baked apples, lasagna, or thick rigatoni, mmmmm mmm!
Frozen dinners, pies or desserts made in a large factory are becoming a thing of the past with the resurgence of doing it yourself, in your kitchen. Nothing is as delectable or creates more memories than that special something you cooked up for your family and friends. CHILDREN are now becoming very interested in cooking and baking and there is no time like the present to gift someone with an interest or passion for being in the kitchen!
Etsy shops have a wonderful variety of baking, serving and entertainment items you may wish to replace or add to your collection, and now is really the time to make this happen!
