Since we’re in the Christmas season, I’ve been sharing a lot of my favorite Christmas-themed books. I can’t let the season get by without sharing one of my favorites by Martha Stewart. I’ve had the paperback version for many years. Recently I noticed they have tons of the hardback version for just a penny on Amazon, so today I ordered it in hardback. I always prefer a hardback copy when I can get it, especially when it’s a book I know I’ll look at again and again.
In the BNOTP Library: Martha Stewart’s Christmas
Author: Martha Stewart
Hardcover: 144 pages
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Tons of recipes from plum pudding to a tutorial for creating a gingerbread mansion…not house, but mansion! I may never attempt some of the more complicated recipes and DIYs, but I love seeing them and reading about how they were done. If you’ve been invited to a cookie party or plan on having one this year, there are some really yummy-looking cookie recipes in this book.
- I’ve always loved seeing inside Martha’s prior home, Turkey Hill. In this book we do get a peek into several rooms, which was really the main reason I purchased this book so many years ago. Some of the pictures are a bit dark, I don’t think cameras were as sophisticated back then as they are now, but most of the pictures are plenty bright. I especially loved the close up views of the Gingerbread Mansion and reading about how Martha made it.
- Tutorials and topics covered in this book are: Plum Puddings, Pomanders & Potpourri, Conserves & Condiments, Christmas Cookies, Cakes & Puddings, Gift Baskets, Wreaths & Topiaries, Ornaments & Wrapping Paper, Christmas Trees,, The Gingerbread Mansion, Holiday Parties, Festive Breakfast and Christmas Day Dinner.
