December 21st brought the official arrival of winter. Although it is supposed to be the shortest day of the year it didn't feel that way.
I hustled around all day with meetings. Then I went Christmas shopping for the girls in my office, my Semi-Homemade daughters, and of course my best friend, Jeffrey, and my life's love, Andrew. It was a very busy day but I think Christmas this year, although not extravagant, will be lovely and special.
The Food Network called this week and gave me a Christmas present. I get to go back into the studio in January to film my 15th season of Semi-Homemade. That's amazing and a tribute to you, my friends. Thank you so much for loving the show and the "scapes--" I love you for it. I know 2011 will be wonderful and joyous for all of us.
I wanted to say Merry Christmas to you. May all your hearts be filled with warmth and appreciation for all the gifts god gives the world every day.

P.S.Recipe of the Week: Get into the holiday spirit by celebrating Egg Nog Day on Christmas Eve. Sip on my Irish Egg Nog as you watch reruns of 'Elf' or 'Miracle on 34th Street' – it's for adults only, so whip up a classic egg nog for the little ones.
