What's Cooking?: Gift Ideas for the Holiday Season

Preparation for the Christmas season is on its way along with Chanukah and Kwanzaa.  It is a time of gift giving and what better way to start then creating edible presents from your kitchen?  Culinary treats as holiday gifts are personal and thoughtful especially when you make them yourselves.  Homemade gifts from the kitchen may save you some money.  They can also be customized for those with special diets or allergies.  It is also a wonderful way to gather the family together in making them!

'Tis the season... for romance!

Glowing lights and cozy fires, sleigh rides and cold-pinked cheeks, evergreens and mistletoe and gifts under the tree... as soon as the last Thanksgiving float goes by, people's thoughts are already turning to the next holiday season.  Christmas holds a strong romantic appeal for many, regardless of religious inclination.  In Japan, for example, Christmas is not celebrated as a family holiday-- it's traditionally the season for lovers!  Since the Christmas season is all about anticipation, I thought I'd start early with a list of books full of the Christmas spirit.  As always, romance authors stand ready to get you in the mood!
