Here’s what else I’m thinking about this Tuesday.
This video made me cry, and it also brought back a lot of memories of all those school Christmas programs!
Now that so many food bloggers are writing cookbooks, I’ve stopped writing reviews or sharing lists of my favorites, but this 2013 Recommended Cookbook List from my friend Elise at Simply Recipes is a good one. I have a lot of the books on the list and also know most of the bloggers who wrote them, so if you’re looking for cookbook recommendations, check out Elise’s list.
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that occasionally I’m awake in the middle of the night. I don’t even mind it that much most of the time, but maybe I should just start sleeping the way our ancestors did.
I remember my mother making a Christmas mini-pastries we called Chess Pies, and these Low Carb and Gluten-Free Mincemeat Tarts with Hard Sauce from All Day I Dream About Food look like a healthier version than the ones mom used to make!
And just for fun, you can’t beat Ugly Christmas Sweater Cookies from I Am Baker.
For all the photographers and wanna-be photographers, Pam from Sidewalk Shoes took some shots in her garden to show how different lenses with different focal points can really change a photo.
And finally, possibly the world’s worst collection of family Christmas photos.
