December Staff Recommendation

Dec 7, 2022 | Hidden Gems

‘Tis the season to prepare for the upcoming holidays.  Did you know the library subscribes to several magazines that you can check out?  Here are just a few that we have on hand. I used the article about Paw-some Presents in the magazine, Taste of Home, to order some special toys for my pups.  The Pioneer Woman magazine had an article to help me up my natural make-up look for the holidays.  Do you like peppermint?  The minty merriment article in Country Living has me planning a peppermint themed bar for our Christmas Day festivities.  I can’t pass up a good salted caramel recipe.  Paula Dean has a salted caramel thumbprint cookie recipe, in her magazine, that I actually think I can make.  I found a few Christmas decorating ideas from the American Farmhouse magazine that I used this year.  I’m always looking for ways to use my collection of decorations in a different way.  Magazines are great for this.

As you are planning your menus for the holidays, check out these cookbooks: Taste of Home Holidays & Celebrations, Debbie Macomber’s Christmas Cookbook, and Christmas Cookies.

The library staff would like to wish all of our patrons a safe and happy holiday season.
