Christmastime Treats  

'Tis the Season to be Jolly...

Following in the fabulously successful footsteps of Halloween Treats and Summertime Treats, Christmastime Treats offers an irresistible array of easy-to-make holiday decorations and gifts, as well as delicious recipes. With just the right user-friendly, family-oriented approach to Christmas crafts this idea-packed volume is sure to please elves of all ages.

Like a craft manual, recipe book, and family frolic guide all in one Christmas Time Treats turns the hectic; commercial side of the holidays into handmade, heart-cherished fun. Sparkling decorations like Little Keepsake Ornaments will delight the young ones while older kids try more intricate projects like A Starry Night Luminaria. Grownups entertaining Santa-style will find inspired recipes for a Christmas Eve Build-Your-Own Minestrone Soup or a succulent prime rib roast dinner with festive trimmings. Sugar 'n' Spice Coconut Snowballs or Chocolate Brown Bears will tempt every tastebud in town, and not even St. Nick can resist Santa's Midnight Sleigh Mix.

There are plenty of scrumptious treats for a jolly good time, but what sets this book apart from others of its kind are the practical tips for cooking and crafting with kids. Author and mom Sara Perry understands that when it comes to family, process is more important than finished product. Both the crafts and the foods are written in recipe form and many include "Easy Way Out" suggestions for when time or energy is in short supply. They're designed to help you celebrate the simple joys of the holiday. With only a little adult assistance, your elves can make most of the crafts and many of the foods.

In the same popular, compact format as its series predecessors, Christmastime Treats is beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs. Offering holiday cheer for the whole family, this delightful volume presents more than 50 new traditions to be treasured this winter and in Christmases to come.

Sara Perry is a columnist for The Oregonian and has been featured in many magazines, including Bon Appetit. Her previous books include Summertime Treats and Great Gingerbread, both published by Chronicle Books.
