More Tips for Making Holiday Baking Easier

Baking cookies  - one of the best parts of Christmas!  But waiting until a few days before the holiday to bake several kinds of cookies can be a recipe for holiday stress!  Cookie baking takes time.

Why not just bake one very favorite cookie at Christmas, and bake several of your other favorites NOW and pop them in the freezer.

I can tell you from personal experience there is nothing so satisfying as putting together a plate of home made Christmas cookies long after the hours on your feet in a hot kitchen have been forgotten!

Saving Summer II - Blackberry Cordial

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!
