I inherited two ideas from the other women in my life. The Christmas bread idea is from my mother-in-law. She is so talented and when I tasted this bread I knew I had picked the right man to marry. :) Though the bread was not my idea, I can take the credit for the burlap and twine it's wrapped in...but I can't take the credit for the cute Christmas tags I found here.
Well it is the season of giving ideas right?
Now a special contribution to my wonderful grandmother. She passed away a couple of weeks ago...and though she had dementia...I knew how much she loved me. I will treasure my last moment with her holding her hand tightly as she fell asleep. She had the softest hands and the softest heart. I bet the reunion on the other side was very sweet.
My grandmother had a "top secret" fudge recipe....that I actually acquired recently. I have made this three times and it really has only turned out once. But I think I have the secret...you have use a gas stove, and you have to speak out loud to my grandmother while stirring it...(there is a lot of stirring).
