Christmas Recipe/Traditions Book

So fun to be a Guest over at FarmQuest HomeStyle Kitchen Challenge!  This is a fun new challenge about farmhouse foods, kitchens, pantries, produce markets, etc!  Sounds yummy, doesn't it?

I've decided to start a mini journal of Christmas Recipes and Traditions!  I say start because there are pockets and it has a ring binder, so I can add whenever I like!  

The cover is pictured above.  For the entire book, check out the quick flip-through video below!  Only about a minute long!


For a few tutorial moments of this book, check out the video below.

Come play along at FarmQuest HomeStyle Kitchen Challenge and show us what's going on in your country kitchen!
