Happy Holidays from the crew in the kitchen

     Well, I'm up to my eyes in candy, gingerbread and singed Christmas cakes (damn you Marilyn for your delicious maple syrup substitution last year. Now I have to do a post about the dangers of sugar substitutions in baking LMAO) A friend gave me some of the currant cake she baked so now I'll have to make that too because it was so good I'm jonesing for more. I've also got a batch of mulled wine jelly on the go. So many delicious things to try and the season is just too short. Add shopping for gifts, wrapping, (Sherry where are you when I need you most?) and I'm sure you'll understand, like most of you, I'm swamped. You'll notice I didn't add cleaning the house for entertaining guests to my list. Why try putting on airs at this late date.....  This will probably be my last post until the new year. I'll still check for comments and such so if you have questions feel free, I'll give any help I can.

      You have seen my face all over the site and a couple of Ferd as well so I thought it only fair to give the other three people who reside here at the house on Ossington some face time.

Charlie, Kristen and Kevin, my on site taste testers
( they're smiling because I promised cookies after, LOL )
      When I started this, it was a rather personal project. I thought it would only be of  interest to family and friends. I am amazed that it has had over 750 views so far, I'm even a Google search term, who knew? I can't tell you all how much I appreciate the response, even if it just you Mom, making me feel popular LOL. It is one of the most gratifying Christmas gifts I have received.

     I have posted various recipes to help you in your holiday celebrations, so eat, drink and if merry is still a little elusive you can always Elf Yourself. As you may have guessed, I am a big kid at heart. I always enjoy a good laugh, even if it is sometimes at my own expense. Click on any of the links below to see all of us at our holiday best.

     Unfortunately the links have expired so you'll just have to wait until next year.

     If that didn't make you laugh, well, I tried. Once again, thank you all for dropping by. I can't tell you how much fun this has been so far. From all of us here to all of you out there, have a happy and safe holiday season. Enjoy.


  1. LMAO. too funny. I'll have to do this...the kids will love it.

  2. You have no idea the laughs these stupid things got around the house. Count yourself lucky it stops at five or I would have had the entire family dancing.LOL See you soon, can't wait.
