A Sweet Treat

Ready or not the Christmas Season has descended upon us. If you dare to venture into a mall or to the main street of town, you are sure to be swallowed up by the hordes of frantic shoppers scurrying from store to store in desperate search of the perfect gift for those left on their lists. Sometimes amidst all the planning and preparation the true meaning of the season gets lost in all the hubbub. Christmas is a time of celebration and reflection. A time to take a break from the craziness of our everyday lives and enjoy a moment with the ones we love. 

Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without all those yummy holiday cookies. You can get your fill in Candy Cane Kisses, by Elle Rush. Thumbprints, gingerbread, sugar cookies, the list goes on and on. 

My favorite treat is Baklawa. Biting into the nutty, crunchy, gooey treat, is like a slice of nirvana. It transports me back to my childhood. My mom in the kitchen grinding the walnuts and carefully placing the pastry sheets, one on top of the next as she buttered each and every one. To me this is the meaning of Christmas, the memories we cherish and ones we have yet to experience. 




I hope you will take the time to enjoy your own treasured memories.
As the song goes…
love the ones you’re with.
