First, I would like to Thank Harlequin for giving me this opportunity to do this review. There are plenty of kid-friendly projects, which is a great time to create handcrafted gifts and decorations, along with making home-baked goodies and enjoying quality time with the family.
This book has some great recipes, just to name a few, Shortbread Sugar Cookies, Russian Tea Cake Cookies, One-Pot Chicken and Vegetables, Hot Spiced Cider and so many more.
The philosophy behind A Homemade Christmas is simple: Giving part of yourself, your time, efforts and talent and will help you get into the genuine holiday spirit.
Making something with your own hands—whether it’s a plate of just-baked cookies, a handcrafted stocking, a homemade wreath, or a hand-folded origami ornament—is a great way to connect with the true meaning of Christmas.
