New Year Dawning

On the Fifth Day of Christmas: Saying good bye to 2013 and looking forward to a brand spanking New Year sparkling with promises to keep!

Apple and Green Chile Scandi Heart Empanadas to Celebrate Lucia Day and Guadalupe Day.

Apple and Green Chile Empanadas

"Apple and Green Chile Empanadas" to celebrate both the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12th) and Lucia Day (Dec. 13th)!

I am not from Mexico nor Catholic, and there is no Scandinavian blood in my recent ancestry, but I always celebrate December 12th and 13th - and quite often by blending the two cultural traditions that have so completely influenced my art, craft, heart and Winter Holiday celebrations.
