The Canadian Living Christmas Book


by Elizabeth Baird (food) and Anna Hobbs (crafts) and the editors of Canadian Living Magazine. Subtitled “Wonderful holiday recipes plus marvelous entertaining and decorating ideas.” Quantum Books, first edition, 1993. Out of print.

From the inside dust jacket blurb: “The countdown begins in the kitchen, where holiday baking fills the air…whether it’s a classic ‘Extra-Fruity Dark Fruitcake’ up to date ‘Chocolate Pecan Fruitcake’ or melt-in-your-mouth 'Lemon Poppy Seed Shortbread’ and ‘Eggnog Fudge,' many of the cakes and cookies can be made ahead and frozen – and that’s a plus for fast last-minute desserts and hostess gifts. When it comes time to deck the halls, there are dozens of easy decorating ideas and one-of-a-kind ornaments and wreaths to bring the color and fragrance of Christmas into your home.”

Food contributors include Baird as well as Judith Comfort, Nancy Enright, Carol Ferguson, Margaret Frazer, Helen Gougeon, Patricia Jamieson and other leading Canadian food writers.
