my favorite Martha Stewart Mar 25, 2009
I have had this for a long time, since before I became a trained cook. Just looking at the cover gives me the christmas warm fuzzies!
Martha is very warm and personal in her early books, and this is one of the cheeriest, even including pictures from the christmas party in her home. I have made many of these recipes, and they have all turned out good, from popcorn balls and lip-smacking condiments to crisp pickles and delicious cookies. I had always wanted to bake a gingerbread house, so for my first I built her Gingerbread Mansion, which is very clearly explained; I made one of my own design every winter after that for years, inspired by Martha.
I guess this is my favorite Martha Stewart book (her ?Pies and Tarts? book is another that I return to), as every year I return to it for one of her good classic recipes; ?Martha Stewart?s Christmas? is a definitely a great baker for a home baker or professional. Recommended.
