Christmas Recap

Basking. Recovering. Recharging. Putting away the silver, crystal and china.


A MacFamily breakfast tradition. I can’t believe I forgot the Christmas crackers!

So much fun to have received photos on Christmas morning of reader’s cinnamon rolls they made from The Best Giant Make-Ahead Cinnamon Roll Ever. Thank you so much for sharing! I’d love to see more so please send me your photos and I’ll post them.

Here are two – from Lauren in Pasadena and Nancy in Seattle.

And another from Kathy in New York. I love the festive sprinkles! Perfect!


For more readers’ photos see the original cinnamon roll post.

I’ll be popping back in tomorrow after a trip to LA with a dessert martini that will be perfect to ring in the New Year. It’s my absolute favorite and I can’t wait to share it with you.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are enjoying the rest of the week.

See you tomorrow with that very special martini.

    I feel famous ; ) — we are planning on doing the cinnamon roll again for New Years, this time with the nuts and adding raisins. Also – KIPPERS – oh one of my strongest Christmas memories is of walking into your house at some point on Christmas day and smelling the kippers! I can smell them right now!! I never tasted them lol but I am glad you have continued such a long standing tradition. By the way – you all look fantastic!
