You Want Me to What? Fix the Family Holiday Dinner?

In-laws arriving and you're wondering what to cook? Or worse, how to cook? Look no farther than Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food. The newly revised 20th anniversary edition is chock-full of recipes and tips and has been Cedarville Community Library Circulation Clerk Jennifer’s go-to for years. Her supervisor gave it to her when she was in her twenties and clueless in the kitchen. The sage chestnut stuffing has become a must at family gatherings.

The holidays can be stressful, and Head Librarian Eden likes to keep it simple. Check out Gooseberry Patch Weeknight Slow Cooker to find a delicious addition to your buffet table: cranberry meatballs. And you can keep your oven free for the turkey when you make harvest pecan sweet potatoes in the slow cooker.

For dessert, what could be better than cookies? Circulation Clerk Elizabeth loves creating specific cookie decorations for her friends and family. She wants to try some of the designs in the Winter Wonderland section of Emily Hutchinson’s Creative Cookie Decorating. The book includes buttercream frosting designs and tips.

Check all of these out at the Cedarville library. From our families to yours, have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
