Christmas in July Giveaway!

 Christmas
I would love to say "it's that time of year again", 
but sadly...it's not. 
But, it's going to be here before you know it! 

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?
I have. This is the month when I try to get a lot of it done.
Clothes are on sale due to back to school sales, 
so I purchase what I can now. 
Toys go on sale soon too...
getting ready to re-stock for the holidays. 
My goal is to NOT have to go out and rush around the week before Christmas to finish up my shopping. 
But, it never fails....I'm usually out anyway!

Plus...shopping Christmas sales, 
surrounded by all the decorations and music....
 

Sooo...to celebrate


I am hosting a giveaway with one of my favorite 
Christmas cookbooks

This cookbook is chock full of delicious recipes
just waiting to be put on your family dinner table!

Christmas Cheer
Rise and Shine
In the Nick of Time

    First off, let me say Thank-You for your Blog and recipes. I like the Christmas in July because I can plan ahead and have everything that I need for Christmas dinner and also plan my Thanksgiving dinner because I do them both at the same time and I make sure that if there is anything that I have to make for a gift, I will have it made and ready. Thank-You

    Our family has enjoyed a Breakfast Casserole that is made the night before since the kids were small.Now that the kids are grown and we can't all be together at Christmas every year, we have it whenever we are all together anytime of the year. The Christmas Morning Casserole has become a family tradition. Memories of making it together on Christmas Eve still makes me smile and look forward to the next time we share this casserole together.

  16. We have two. One is a side dish which is the stuffing that my grandmother used to make (I have her recipe) and then for dessert one of the treats must be the pumpkin crisp I make.

  18. I am such a fan of Gooseberry Patch ~ I have hundreds of their wonderful cookbooks! I would love to add to my collection with the Classic Christmas Cookbook. Christmas is my favorite time of year and I have all of the yearly Christmas books, from #1 to #13. I also have the very first larger Christmas cookbook from Gooseberry Patch and Friedman/Fairfax. That's when I fell in love with Gooseberry Patch. And yes, I have already bought several Christmas gifts, some of which are Gooseberry Patch calendars, cookbooks and pocket calendars. Would love to win this cookbook! Thank you Gramma's in the Kitchen and Gooseberry Patch for this opportunity!
