This book is so charming! I received it as a gift from a dear friend many years ago and I re-read it every Christmas! Recipes, ideas, and holiday thoughts pulled together with Susan Branch's truly unique artistry make this a favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful holiday treasure! Dec 10 2001
No matter what else is going on, this book is a wonderful holiday "pick-me-up". You will feel instantly more "Christmasy" after looking through it. I keep it on my coffee table throughout the holiday season.
As with all Susan Branch books, her watercolor illustrations are absolutely beautiful. They rnage from adorable little elfs to sumptuous holiday table settings.
The recipes are clearly written, her cookie recipes are particularly good and she offers great tips on presenting cookies as a holiday gift.
This is a great book to browse through around the holidays!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful all around Oct. 26 2001
By A Customer
This is a gorgeous book to own. It contains a wide range of Christmas topics. My favorite being the stocking stuffer page(page 58),crammed with ideas for things to put in stockings. It contains ideas for things to make your Christmas special or to make someone else's Christmas special. I liked her idea for gathering friends and family together for a picture while holding up a sign that says "I love you,(name here)!" or writing Merry Christmas in the snow and sending the photo to a loved one who is far away! There is a page dedicated to making gravy...ideal for someone who still needs help with the basics. Also, recipes for beautiful side dishes such as delicate and simple creamed pearl onions. She shares her ideas for decorating and gift giving (a jar of homemade star-shaped croutons!) This really is worth owning or giving as a Christmas present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas from the Heart of the Home Jan. 3 2001
I was first introduced to Susan Branch when I purchased this book in 1998. The recipes are lovely, but even better, is the real personality that the author offers to all of her readers. She is genuine, and so full of passion for life, she will capture your heart. Since reading this book, I have purchased every book I can find by Susan Branch, and each and every one is as good as this one. The Summer Book, Vineyard Seasons, Baby Love, Christmas Joy, The Day Book, Celebrations, and Girlfriends. She writes bits and pieces about the real things in life, and has a drawing, a doodle, and a recipe for every thought that crosses her mind. I feel I can relate to her so well when I am reading her books, and she is like a sister to me, as she reminds me always of the love and happiness that my 3 sisters and I share, along with our mother, father and four brothers. If you write to Susan to get on her mailing list, she will let you know when new books are published, and you will recieve her newsletter, another joy to read. When I find a new book by Susan, and order it through Amazon, I have the book within a few days. I am delighted.

Another master piece by Susan Branch. This is my favorite of all her cookbooks. Each page is beautifully illustrated. The recipes, stories and decorating ideas are great as usual.
