Do you or someone you know love to cook, bake, or both? I personally can’t pick one over the other! I’m constantly looking for new treats, meals, drinks, appetizers, and other delicious goodies to make for friends and family. As much and as often as I look for recipes online, I still like having cookbooks on my shelves to flip through. The more pictures to tantalize the eyes and tickle the taste buds the better and that is why I adore the Taste of Home cookbooks!

Starting this year and hopefully, from here on out, we are starting a new tradition with “The Giving Manger” to purposefully seek out opportunities to give and do other good deeds throughout the month of December. Of course, it’s the task we are aiming to have it become a habit so we’ll be reminded to look for those opportunities and seek to help others year round.
With over 1 BILLION Youtube views, The Piano Guys celebrate the holiday season with their take on classically-infused Christmas songs.
