My brother-in-law, Dale, once joked that my family could make a meal out of dessert. The thing is, he's right. Coming from a large French family, I grew up with a sweet tooth and there never seemed to be a lack of sugary treats around. At Christmas, Mom would make desserts that we only got once a year. Dishes like Pineapple Delight were happily devoured each Holiday Season. When I look back to my childhood Christmases, I remember the noise, the laughter and the food. Now that I am older with a family of my own that lives in another province, I am not always able to partake in my Mom's feast. But I do carry on the love of baking, especially of all those sweet confections that remind me of home and Christmas on the farm.

No Snow Here
It's definitely NOT going to be a white Christmas!
As we watch the news reports about blizzards and ice storms across the U.S, we are relieved and blessed by our sunny conditions, beautiful foliage, and blue skies.
