I knew today's post would be the one for which I wouldn't be able to decide what to write. Our go-to holiday book? There are too many to single out just one. But Christmastime, a ridiculous look at the holiday season by Sandra Boynton, has to be one of them for me. I make sure I pack it up with my Christmas decorations when they come down every year just so it's there the next year when I start decorating and I don't forget to read it!
It's a really clever little book by a really talented artist and writer and I love it. She offers up her take on everything from Christmas carols ("Deck the malls with plastic holly....") to fruitcake (there's a whole chapter on it that makes me laugh harder every time I read it).
To top it off, it features a bunch of her wonderful illustrated characters worth a look in themselves. This is one you won't regret looking up, if you can find it.
And here's another recipe you won't regret trying out. This one's from my friend Barbara Geraldi:
