BAKING and MERRY CHRISTMAS
First I want to wish every one of my followers and visitors a very Merry Christmas. I have been busy baking all day. I have made Rugelach and now am in the process of making Jam thumbprint cookies that are rolled in coconut. The house is smelling wonderful. Tomorrow I am going to make some Triple Gingerbread! I had some at a party recently and couldn't believe how wonderful tasting it is. It taste's like Christmas!!
We have decided to go Italian for Christmas this year so I am making Stracotto(Italian Pot Roast) with Porcini mushrooms and for my Vegetarian daughter I am also making Swiss Chard/Sweet Pea Manicotti with a Fontina Fonuduta sauce. Our Thanksgiving is always the traditional Turkey but, we love doing something really different for Christmas. Both recipes I discovered recently and they sound delicious. Do you have a favorite Christmas meal?? I hope all of you have a wonderful day!!
