Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

Today was spent playing ‘Memory’, assembling puzzles, eating Christmas cookies and leftover Black Forest Trifle, tromping through the snow and sledding down hills, coming home for hot cocoa, and eating turkey leftovers for dinner.

We’re really, really enjoying the holidays.

I’ve been taking a much-needed blogging break….but did manage to throw together a little video to wish readers happy holidays. Please stop by Simple Bites to receive holiday greetings from the whole family…

There’s also been Classic Tourtière, a pretty Citrus Salad (which got picked up by both Glamour and Gourmet. !), and a lengthy, personal and much-loved recap of my holiday cookie swap.

Here’s hoping your holiday was a special one.

  1. Merry Christmas, Aimee. I'm so happy to hear that
    you've been enjoying a break and your days have been filled with good fun and great food.

  2. Bonjour Aimee,

    I just love your assortment of cookies… I give cookies as gifts every year for friends/students and it's always appreciated – esp. here in France – where cookies are not really the tradition (except maybe in Alsace or close to Germany).
    I made linzer cookies for the first time, too.. two different types of shortbread- one with a really nice lemon flavour- with nut meal and lemon zest- I got the recipes from . They always have great recipes…. Take care, Leesa
