Best of the Blogs: Christmas Recipes!


Big shocker of the day – I’m still not done buying Christmas presents.

I know.  I knowww.  Christmas Eve is tomorrow.  Tomorrow!  And my mess of a self will be spending the night traipsing around NYC like a lunatic hunting for literally anything I can throw wrapping paper over.

It’s the most wonderful time of year!

Look, I can be honest and admit that my time management skills are only so-so at the best of times.  So in the days before Christmas, know that I am a complete and utter clichéd disaster.  Like, did I joyously trample a few tourists while in Soho this weekend?  I most certainly did.  Have I been flipping off cabbies with reckless abandon?  Yes.. yes I have.  And did I cry to a Bloomingdales cashier because I was tired and hungry and oh-my-god how could you not have in stock exactly!!! what I need 48 hours before the biggest holiday of the year?!?!

Yeah.  It happened.

BUT, even in the midst of my own self-induced melodrama I haven’t forgotten about all of you.  So here’s a tidy little run-down of my favorite Christmas recipes from around the web, expertly wrapped with a big fat bow because y’all are just so special and great.
