My Review: I love reading Laura Powell's blog, realmomkitchen.com, and I'm always excited to see a new cookbook by her. I kind of (okay not kind of!) collect cookbooks, and I enjoy looking through them and planning new things to try. I was way excited to see this new one by Laura Powell and to be able to check it out. I loved all of the pictures in this one and there were tons of recipes that I want to try, I love that there were several that included eggnog. I'll have to try out the Eggnog Cookie recipe soon! Check out this fun cookbook for all of your Christmas cooking needs.
