Margit has decorated her tree this year with glass balls and nature related ornaments she has designed herself. According to Margit, her tree is quite untraditional but I love her idea of untraditional!
Before continuing, let me apologize for "disappearing" for several days! It could not be helped, but I am very happy to be up and around and back to myself again!

My friend, Avital, who lives in Israel,sent me this beautiful photograph she took a couple years ago of a simple Menorah and I asked her to allow me to share it with everyone today. Thank you so much Avital.
One of the things I love most about this image is the reflections of the candle flames - to me it is almost as if they are extending back in time - as if they are a connection to previous generations. And check out her beautiful image of Hanukkah street light decorations in her city

My favorite feast on December 12th, the celebration of La Virgen de Guadalupe, is a big bowl of Green Chile Stew and a basket full of pipping hot Sopapillas. I am sharing my recipes for both.
We start with Sopapillas.

The Feast of St. Nicholas is almost upon us! And again, I am trying out new cookies from this collection of St. Nicholas Cookies!
You will want to visit The St. Nicholas Center and you may want to check out what cookies I made from the cookie collection last year!
But before revealing which cookies I baked this year, I wanted to share a couple tips.

Snuggled up on the sofa with your sweetie at the end of a long day of holiday preparations, gazing at flickering candles, listening to softly playing holiday music and slowly sipping luscious, soothing Blackberry Cordial....
If this little scene sound appealing - prepare for it NOW by picking all those fat, juicy blackberries ripening quickly in the warm August sunshine and making your very own Blackberry Cordial. Believe me - making Blackberry Cordial is as easy as pie! Actually way easier than pie!
