Sharing My Knitted Christmas Ball Addiction!!

Knitted Christmas Balls

Am admitting to a little addiction!!! Knitting beautiful ornament balls from "55 Christmas Balls to Knit" by Arne and Carlos.

If you knit, and are trying to figure out the perfect hand knitted gifts to give this season - order yourself a copy now and get started knitting!!

Once you have knitted a couple, you will find that you are able to complete a whole ball in just a few hours.

Christmas and Winter Holiday Cookies: Biscotti and Mandelbrot

Three Favorite Biscotti

Biscotti! Probably needs little introduction. Many of us enjoy dunking and munching the slightly sweet little wedges of crunchy goodness. And since they are available in almost every coffee shop, super-market and gourmet shop year-round, most people may not associate them with the winter holidays. But once I learned to make them and found recipes for the delicious versions I am sharing below, they have become a holiday tradition at my house.

Christmas and Winter Holiday Cookies: Pfeffernüsse

Pfeffernusse

Pfeffernüsse! Lovely, fragrant, tasty Pfeffernüsse! One of the oldest spicy cookies in northern Europe and known and beloved by the Dutch as Pepernoten! Translation of both words - "pepper nuts"!
