    Oh there is nothing better than a good sharp chef’s knife. They are so helpful this time of year with all the cooking for the festivities. What I love best this time of year is the cooking of all the holiday treats, the candies, fudge and divinity are my downfalls, the cookies, and the big prime rib for christmas dinner, You need a good knife to prep all the items you will need,

    How can I choose just one favorite thing? Christmas time is my favorite time of year. Spending time and making memories with my family. Decorating the tree, watching Christmas movies, snuggling with homemade blankets while drinking apple cider. Writing and receiving cards. Singing Christmas carols. Christmas baking and candy making. Driving around to see the lights. There’s so many things!!!
