Sir checked the mail the other day and brought in one of my favorite perks, Country Woman Magazine! I found the article about Christmas Past & Present, a 1730s farmhouse kitchen, I enjoyed reading very much as I love historical things, and the kitchen has to be my favorite place in the house. There may of been some drooling while looking at the pictures! A few pages into the magazine is a lovely article about a family tradition of making tamales. Oddly, I have been looking for a good authentic recipe, to bring some childhood flavors I miss from living in Texas back into my life. I am really looking forward to trying out the recipes. While this edition did not have as many recipes that spoke to me, the bread recipes did pop out, and I may be baking soon. Not to mention Cherry Cheese Blintzes. I was not impressed with the DIY projects either, though I may hang onto the Hunter Star Quilt pattern. I also drooled over the red organza apron with vintage print hankies, too adorable! While I enjoyed reading about the Dresden Stollen family tradition, however I was severely disappointed when I logged onto the website, and knowing that my wallet would never be big enough to taste it. So while there was highlights, and recipes that I did find almost make this episode worth buying. However, I kind of expected a little more, and if I didn’t have a subscription I wouldn’t of shelled out $4.99 for it. Frankly even the decorated tea cups on the front would of screamed Grandma,and I am not sure I would of even picked it up!
