YES YES YES!!!!
CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Always has been, ALWAYS WILL BE! I hope and
pray your CHRISTMAS Season will be filled with warmth, cheer, lots of

"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!' "

From Phil Hammond ('64) of UT - 12/01/10 - "Chewy Coconut Macaroons":
Since you are the baking expert do you have a recipe for Chewy Coconut Macaroons? I remember them from somewhere, probably Mom, but the only recipe I have is for the fluffy type with egg whites.
I'm sure there are those among us who would be amused at your description of me as the baking expert, but how about this recipe?
