So, I’ll be honest with you, I’m feeling less than motivated right now. The week between Christmas and New Years is supposed to be vacation time, but I have some things I need to do for other clients so I’m spending a few hours online a day. Right now, I want nothing more than to settle in with one of my new Christmas books and spend the day reading! I’m going to skip the long intro and get right to the recipes. In the interest of full disclosure, I didn’t create these recipes myself. I bought a prewritten article that had all of them in it (basically, a PLR article that gives me the license to reprint them). I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
