In a nostalgic return to the past, a well-known teacher, author, and TV personality presents a real holiday gift -- memories of a small-town-America country Christmas. From Great-Grandma's Christmas Goose to traditional plum pudding, this treasury of homespun recipes harks back to the days when the kitchen was the center of family life. Interwoven among over 250 recipes are nostalgic recollections, stories, poems, charming drawings, and antique photographs that evoke an era of simpler ways and a relaxed pace.
