Last Minute Tips


I don’t know about you, but I always have some last minute shopping to do before Christmas.  If you are in that bind, here are some finds that may make it easier for you.  In fact, you just might want one or two for your own stocking.

For the cook or the person who enjoys beautiful food photos and stories, there is no shortage of cookbooks.
