“If you are one who celebrates Christmas or are even just a 'winter person' who loves hearty seasonal food, this is your book. Interlaced between delicious family recipes for mouth-watering comfort food are funny and familiar-feeling holiday memories from Stimson's family. This is a handbook for the holidays, a great invitation to recall your own family memories and start some new family traditions, and a perfect holiday gift.”
— Kris Kleindienst (W), Left Bank Books, Saint Louis, MO

Celebrate the beauty and charm of the holidays with recipes for traditional food and drink, decorating ideas, and heartwarming stories


With its trademark snow, piney forests, sleigh rides and woodsmoke curling out of village chimneys, New England was practically invented for the Christmas postcard. It’s got your Christmas goose and the maple syrup with which to glaze it. It’s most of the reason author Ellen Stimson made Vermont her home. Here she shares recipes that have been in her family for generations, mixes up a cocktail or two, and invites readers to make their own traditions.
Ellen Stimson is blessed with a wild pack of children; not-so-wild but completely adorable husband; and a very civilized group of chickens, dogs, and cats. Lately she's decided that she really wants a pig. She writes about the whole catastrophe from an old farmhouse in Vermont.
