Welcome back to the final week of my author interviews. I hope you have enjoyed reading these blogs and I hope you were inspired to try your hand at some of the recipes these ladies submitted.
I also hope you downloaded your free gift from us. We just wanted a simple and delightful way to say thank you for all your tweeting and likes and we didn't want you to have to sign up for anything-just simply a true free offering.
I don't have an interview for you this week and no I won't be interviewing myself but I did want to share a holiday favorite with you.
First, a few of my favorite things: winter, Christmas, and these delightful little Cheerio trees. I enjoy all things winter; except for the dangerous icy conditions. Being from south central Texas, I love when winter comes rolling in. My mother made winter and mountains go together like a hand in a glove to me.
Of course, it rarely snowed where I lived as a child so we had to wait for Christmas cards to come in the mail to be able to see snow or mountains for that matter.
However, here in the Ozarks, I get to live those Christmas card kind of days and
I love it.
I asked each of my author friends what holiday treat did their Mother make they would most enjoy making for their family. As a child, one of my favorite holiday treats my mother used to make was Cheerio Christmas trees, like the ones in this pic.
I went through my old photos to see if I could find one but I had to borrow this one from
I thought my mother put hers together using Karo syrup. So, I tried it. Karo doesn't form. Thank goodness Betty Crocker has a recipe because that is the one I'd most like to make for my family. I can be a disaster in the kitchen; my hubby does most of the cooking. I just clean up for him to work his master pieces and away he goes. They look so yummy, I can hardly wait to get started fixing them. I hope you will try these also.
Last week, I promised an update on my two short stories. I have sent them both off to my editor. I have tons of work to do on them. She is hopeful we can have Elain'as Regrets ready for your summer leisure. So, please keep an eye out for this one.
It is my sincere hope you all are preparing to enjoy the gift of family, friendship, and most of all a warm hearted relationship with Jesus this Christmas.
Thank you again for stopping by. Have a very Merry Christmas.
See you again in 2017.
