The Christmas Episode

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

I took some time catching up with friends and family over the past week - and I realized that I have been cutting back each year on how much time I spend in the kitchen to prepare for this week of entertaining.

...and I am guessing that I am not the only one...

I want to sit and have a glass of wine with my friend.

I want to be seated in the living room watching the season finale of Survivor with my nephew.

I want to watch my mother claim victory at Kismet over her grandkids.

I can't do all of that while I am standing in front of a stove.

I just pressed "record" here and there throughout the week to capture some of the highlights - to share some of my Christmas with you.

Merry Christmas to all!
