Review of Debbie Macomber's Christmas Cookbook


Debbie Macomber’s Christmas Cookbook
Harlequin
240 pages
ISBN 13: 9780373982396

Whether you’re looking for old favorites or new traditions to add to your Holiday table it will be in this wonderful cookbook. It covers anything and everything you need to make a Holiday table something special from Merry Morning Breakfasts to Cooking with Grandma, Baked Gifts and Crafts plus you’ll find plenty of room in the back to add your own favorites to refer to year after year.
Inside it’s hardbound pages you will also find beautifully illustrated photos and many recipes that came down from Debbie’s family. At the introduction to each section Debbie will tell a special story that will bring back your own special holiday moments and memories I know they did for me. It’s obvious that she put something very special of herself inside this cookbook just like what her fans expect every time they open one of her novels and she takes this one step further by putting something very personal on each of these 240 pages of treats for the palate, the eyes and the stomach. She covers everything from sweet to savory and all the in between too from table setting, place holders and gifts from the oven and from the heart.
To share a personal note, when mine arrived in the mail my mother happened to be visiting and she was planning on spending most of the Christmas season with my sister, but upon seeing the wonderful recipes inside the book she altered her plans and will be instead staying with me, which makes me very happy.
It makes a wonderful gift as well as a keepsake and if you want your mother to spend the holidays with you make sure you have a copy she can see, or if you happened to want her to stay, say at your sister’s home instead make sure you get your sister a copy for a very early Christmas present.
If you didn’t love Debbie Macomber before you will now as she shares with us a very personal part of herself. Thank you Debbie!
