Recipes, memories and random thoughts from my kitchen

Here are just a few photos of Christmas at our house! First, the gingerbread house which our granddaughter Sarah made in school. It is brightening up our dining room table.
This garland of snowmen is hanging on a beam above our dining table.
Here is my kitchen island all decorated for the holiday. I had lots of kitchen gifts on this island, but now they have all been given away, and this festive assortment took their place. The “ribbon candy” is actually a box of ornaments made of real ribbon, made by my daughter Joanna. The candle is Yankee Candle's Pomegranate Cider -- what a wonderful scent!
And last of all here is my hutch, decorated for the season. I had so much fun decorating the three lower shelves, especially. The wooden crèche was made by my dad many years ago. The ironstone china on the bottom shelf is from my mother’s family.
That is all I have time to share for now, but I hope each of you has had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. We surely did.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
