  • As I write this column, on Dec. 18, it is exactly one week until Christmas. Our mail lady brought three packages to the front door today. Gee, I thought I was through wrapping presents.

    When thinking about what to write this week, I became nostalgic and wondered what I wrote in columns at this time of the year during the last seven years. Two years I wrote memoirs without recipes. This week I present to you a collection of favorites from 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
