Christmas Recipes

Chestnuts roasting over an open fire... oh, you know what I mean. At Christmas time all I want to do is start a fire, pour a glass of deep red Zinfandel, and sit back and enjoy the evening. The house is decorated with old and new ornaments, and we take time each year pick up one of the latest Steinbach Nutcrackers. It is just like a Norman Rockwell painting (except that we are in non-snowy central Virginia).
