peace on earth


The Chef and I are preparing to leave our home for the Christmas festivities. On the table, ready to be packed: smoked paprika; truffle oil; Maldon sea salt; golden balsamic vinegar. There are ginger cookies, rolled sugar cookies, chocolate blocks, the Chef's mom's Christmas cookies, fudge, and sugared pecans. Waiting to be cooked, an enormous pork loin for tonight, a prime rib so large that I could use it as a battering ram. The Kitchen-Aid is going too, since I'm making rosemary bread for dinner. And of course, there are presents and gift tags and the camera.

We are kercited. It is our first Christmas together.

With the holiday, and the impending deadline of my book, we may not be here for awhile. So we would both — the Chef and the Writer — like to take this chance to say,

peace to you all.

Remember, as John says, war is over, if we want it.

Thank you for your presence in our lives. Happy Christmas, everyone.

Danny and Shauna Christmas 2006

Happy Holidays to you, Shauna. Your blog is a tremendous resource to the GF world! BTW, I am going to check your links, but in case it is not there, do you know of any sugar-free GF chocolate that can be used for baking??? I have one link from YC Chocolate
but it is $12.50 a lb. for baking chocolate.

As I said after my mum made dad a flour-free Christmas cake full of soft fruits and nuts - "all I am saying is give me a piece".

Have a great Christmas and keep up the good work next year.
