This cookbook is filled with delicious recipes, not only for Christmas Day but for parties held around the holidays. There are appetizers, lots of cookies, and some delicious drinks, both with and without alcohol. I'm sure this is a Cookbook I'll turn to again and again over the years.

You have probably heard of Betty Crocker cookbooks, but did you know there was a Christmas cookbook? Each recipe from cover to cover is deliciously festive. Including meals, desserts, appetizers, snacks, holiday beverages and more easily a hostess can find many things to make and share. There are even directions for some decoration crafts! The photography is very inspirational and full of ideas to fill any hope with Christmas Holiday cheer!

Through out the recipes there are also included "New Twi
I've used this cookbook for years (had it for years) and it is my go-to cookbook for the holidays. Love the "Spiced-Orange Tea Mix."

This is an older cookbook, but it is one of the best Christmas cookbooks on our shelves at the Marathon County Public Library. Every recipe is easy to follow and the pictures alone will put you in the Holiday mood. The last chapter includes holiday decorating and homemade gift giving ideas that anyone can make and give. Put on some holiday music, open up the cookbook and enjoy the season.

Find this book in our library catalog.

There are lots of fantastic recipes for every level of cook / chef. I copied a lot of things for my personal use. There are recipes for food, beverages, gifts and more!

There are even decorating recipes for non-food stuff such as the "Jolly Snowman Wreath", "Holiday Garland", centerpieces and much more!

The color pictures are beautiful and help illustrate what the finished product should (might) look like.

A gem of a [soft cover] cookbook that would make a fine gift ($19.95) for anyone!

This is such a great cookbook to have around the holidays. It has cute ideas about decorating and family traditions, as well as recipes I only use around the Holidays, so I don't have to try to worry about remembering them from one year to the next. And the recipe for homemade carmels is perfect. It is exactly how I remember it growing up, without a lot of steps and ingredients other cookbooks call for.

This had a nice variety of holiday-themed recipes, but the sheer amount of sweets highlighted in this cookbook was the polar opposite of the recipes included in the two cookbooks I just finished reading, both of which promoted healthy eating. But if you're looking to add something new to your holiday repetoire, I'd definitely look through this book for ideas - it has plenty of them!

The Borders by our house is closing so they are selling everything at various discount prices. All the Christmas books, dvds and cds were 75 percent off. I bought this book for $4.99. What a bargain. I was happy to see it has received some good reviews.

A nice cookbook, with updated favorites and appealing offerings. I copied many of the recipes to try. Includes a section on food gifts and holiday decorations.

another wonderful new addition to my cookbook shelf (ok shelves!)
Still nothing like a beautifully illustrated cookbook to scour and "read" ...
