A Christmas Carol with recipes

So, this is interesting.

Again, a book landed on my doorstep, asking to come in. Hello, book, who are you? Ah, it's A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Huh? Wha? Why?

You've probably read A Christmas Carol at some point in your life. Or you saw the movie or maybe even a play. But this version is different. It includes recipes by Giada de Laurentiis, Ina Garten, Martha Stewart, and Trisha Yearwood.

Yup, recipes.

There's no roast goose, but there is a roasted turkey breast and a baked ham, so you'll be all set for the holidays. While this is far from being a full-blown cookbook, there are appetizers, side dishes, and desserts, too.

I'm quite tempted by the Cran-Apple Crisp for dessert, if I'm being honest.

Besides including recipes, the illustrations are also food-related, which is kind of cute. Makes the whole thing more fun.

I have to say this would make a lovely gift for someone who likes to read and likes to cook. Add a few extras, like a set of biscuit cutters, a zester, and a pretty pie plate, and it would be really adorable.

As I'm browsing through the book, I'm wondering when I actually read it last. I mean, I've watched it recently. I think it's time I read it again. Right after I fix a nice mug of hot chocolate.

Like many books here, I got this from the publisher at no cost to me.
