Christmas Specials!

Dear Readers,

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! Boule de neige et jour de l'an, Et bonne année grand-mère ! Vive le vent..... You must be hearing Christmas songs every where. This time of the year is so special for everyone and especially for kids. They make a long list of their demands, write a letter to Father Christmas (Santa Claus) and they do not forget to say that "they have been nice and gentle".....

It is a tradition to decorate Christmas trees at home, at work and almost every where in the Western World. Following are the photos taken from a tree festival where these Christmas trees are decorated on different themes for an auction-

Oat Raisin Cookies Oat Raisin Cookies-My 11 years old daughter loves to bake and has baked these cookies herself. I just operated the oven for her. I look for some healthy options so we have used wheat flour instead all-purpose flour. We have also used rolled oats. Oat is a good source of fibers. Try out this light dish and please do share your comments........
shortbread cookies

Shortbread Cookies-Shortbread is a very famous Scottish cookie made with all-purpose flour, butter and sugar. These cookies are also very popular in England, Denmark, France, and some other European countries with different names and in different versions. These cookies are extremely delicious and it is hard to stop after one…but they are loaded with butter so they are high in fat content…..This is a very easy to follow recipe of shortbread cookies. Please do share your comments and suggestions about the recipe....
