With the first, albeit brief, snowfall of the season here in Grand Junction, and the appearance of Santa Claus himself already at the local mall, it’s very apparent that the holiday season is upon us. That means a lot of things to a lot of people, but to almost everyone, it means cooking – celebrating with family over a holiday meal, exchanging treats and recipes, or maybe even crafting in the kitchen. Gingerbread houses, anyone? If you need some kitchen inspiration these days, as you’re compiling your grocery lists, stop by the library first. Check out our selection of cookbooks! There are books just on the holiday meals themselves, plus lots more on pies, Christmas cookies, edible gifts, and more. While you’re here, you can check out the books on holiday decorating and crafts, too. Get a head start on the season and make this holiday season the best yet.
