Here is my review of this must see Christmas resource:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Tammy Maltby and her publisher for sending me a copy of "The Christmas Kitchen" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

Tammy Maltby’s “The Christmas Kitchen” is loaded with recipes, decorating ideas and activities to make the holiday season even more special. It may lead to new traditions or give you ideas for how to spice up old ones. Personally, I cannot wait to make several of the recipes in this book. My only regret is that there weren’t photos of the finished products so I could get ideas for how to present the dishes.

This book was, however, filled with family photos that made it such a personal volume. It gave me the idea to assemble our own family decorating ideas, traditions and recipes into a volume with our own family photos to give to both of my girls as a holiday keepsake. Thanks, Tammy, for sharing your own family with me and sparking my creativity to preserve my own family’s holiday customs.
