Homemade Apple Chips

Well, the holidays are over and what a whirlwind it was.  And so much fun. My brothers and their families came to visit and I did a ton of cooking for that, including an enormous batch of chicken ragu, which I smartly froze ahead of time. That was a timesaver.  I made big pork loins stuffed with one of my favorite stuffings.  I also made Jamie's Peanut Butter Parfaits which were a big hit. We decorated Oreo cookies and I made Cranberry Upside Down Cake. It was all a lot of fun. 

I also got to reveal something that I had kept a bit of a secret all year.  I started a knitting blog last spring but did not talk about it at all here because I couldn't let my family know about it.  In March, I started a big project to knit something for every person in my family by Christmas.  I ended up knitting 17 projects for everyone.  What a thrill it was to finally present them to everyone during their visit. It was hours of knitting and thousands of stitches and lots of tinking, but a whole lot of love knitted into every item.
