What’s the holiday season without cookies, cakes, candies and other unhealthy treats! Baking holiday goodies is part of the tradition, and a perfect family activity. While I totally believe in a little splurging, there are healthy baking substitutes where no one will know the difference.

(However, if it sounds appealing, email me and I’ll send you the recipe – my husband loves them!)
Pot roast is one of those winter delights that warms up the innards and makes us feel so satisfied. Sarah Leah Chase’s cookbook Cold Weather Cooking that I found in my attic recently emphasizes this theme. Her recipes continue to stand the test of time and please us today as they did 40 years ago.

Tradition, and its accompanying nostalgia, is something for which we oftentimes pine. Yet we sometimes still complain about the demands placed on our time and the emotional energy that is required. In the fast moving towns and cities where we live, we may seek to avoid these strains by living private lives apart from the past. Still, tradition tugs at our heartstrings. This is most especially true around the holidays when special meals allow us a means to bridge this gap.
