About the Ebook
The tradition I love most is that big Christmas dinner where families gather to share laughter and love. Growing up, the meal rarely changed and the table was set with Mom’s beautiful Christmas dinnerware all full of the same wonderful food. At the center of the table was her huge honey glazed ham or her golden brown turkey. Surrounding it were all the sides, including her sweet potato casserole, her creamy mashed potatoes, and her green beans and ham. There was her homemade cranberry sauce, and buttery dinner rolls and of course a list of desserts on the buffet that made you want to sample every single one of them.
In this cookbook, I wanted to capture my Mom’s special Christmas recipes. Starting with her scrumptious Christmas morning breakfasts, and moving through those incredible main courses and of course her famous mouth-watering desserts. We called these my Mom’s second helping dishes, because you could not resist going back for more! I hope this cookbook takes you down memory lane and that the recipes transport you back home for Christmas.
I am the founder and owner of Welcome Home. I created Welcome Home on Facebook and within a year it went viral. Now 12 years later, over a half a million friends follow my journey of cooking and honoring my Mom's memory. People come from all over the world to join my Save A Life Program....my mission to help the homeless and save the lives of dogs and cats that are being killed in Shelters when no one gets there in time. It seems I work non-stop. I am also the president and CEO of a Communications Consulting firm here in Maryland, just outside of Baltimore. So I don't have a lot of free time on my hands. But in my spare time, I obviously enjoy cooking and blogging, but I also love gardening, reading and writing. I am a novice writer that has published 8 cookbooks. I am proud of the fact that some of the proceeds from the sale of all my books go to the homeless and under privileged and some go to support animal rights.
