5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Cookbook with a Family Twist 29 Aug 2001
Mystic Seaport's Christmas Memories has become my all time favourite holiday cookbook. Favourite family holiday recipes have been submitted by Friends of the Mystic Seaport Museum in New England, and tested carefully by the editors of the book so you can be assured that they will work. There are also useful comments and serving suggestions at the beginning of each recipe. Through the years, I have tried nearly every recipe in this book, and have enjoyed some so much that they have become part of my everyday culinary repertoire (try the Curried Chutney Spread!)I also like the section on light meals and leftovers! I must own every holiday cookbook on the market, but this one stands the test of time, dog-eared as it has become, and remains my firm favourite - I like the idea of sharing other families' favourite Christmas recipes and memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic yet not overwhelming 1 April 2000
By Martha H. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
My reason for attempting to purchase this incredible cookbook is because my old copy is so spattered and worn out that I am afraid of losing it to the elements. Being the mother of 4 young children, I find this book's many simple but spectacular recipes (Phyllo Wrapped Tenderloin)to be an incredible inspiration; not only to my holiday cooking but to our everday lives as well. The simplest additions, such as Madeira sauce, gravies and orange sauce for Duck are demystified, delicious and can usually be made by what's available in your kitchen. No fail desserts include various and a myriad of cookies: cookie-cutter butter cookies(the kids love this one!), pumpkin cookies, pfeffernuesse, anise cut-outs and many more. Traditional favorites such as Buche de Noel, the much dreaded Fruitcake, various Mousses and let's not forget the best EggNog I have ever made, all serve up as a refreshing yet familiar addition to our table. Finally, many of the appetizers are recognizable but are a wonderful surprise; like an old friend that you didn't expect to run into. Spinach Spread, Pates, Pesto Layered Torte and Baked Brie are just a few of the few popular items that can be made ahead and frozen. Also, a way to use Holiday leftovers is very cleverly presented; Turkey Enchiladas and Turkey Croquettes with Cranberry are my families favorites. For those of us creating our own traditions, this book is a terrific support and a treat as well. I know that someday my children will phone me and ask for that recipe for "Stuffed Filet of Beef" or "Candy Cane Cookies". In the author's own words, this book is "elegant but not initmidating".

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly foolproof traditions... 28 Oct 2004
By ravensegg - Published on Amazon.com
Many of the recipes in the Christmas Memories Cookbook have become family Holiday traditions in our family. I'd pay twice the price of this book for the Cranberry Pear Relish recipe alone, though I now have to make four recipes' worth in order to have some left over for my own family, once we've given out jars as gifts to all the extended family and friends who beg for it every year! This book has all the recipes anyone could need for the entire Holiday season, including ideas for dealing with an overabundance of leftovers.

Most of the recipes are simple to make and easy to follow, though a few have more ingredients or steps than would be practical for most of us (there's an Egg Nog that looks as though it might be good, but takes several days to make, for instance). And at least one recipe that has what surely must be errors (a chocolate spice cookie that calls for 2 teaspoons of ground cloves... we did try it, just to see, and the aftertaste was horrid). But these are the exceptions to the rule of excellence in this book. And bless the publishers for making it with a spiral-type binding so that the pages lay flat. I've used Christmas Memories for more than the Holidays, so often in the last 15 years that I've worn through two of these books and am on my third copy. I should buy it in bulk; I've also given this book as Christmas presents (by request) to an aunt, a sister-in-law, two friends and my mother.

Because so many of the recipes are very simple, and are also good for entertaining, I'll be giving one to my son when he moves away; I wouldn't mind him cooking these recipes when he has his old parents over for dinner!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Holiday (or anytime) Cookbook Ever 13 Jan 2014
By Claire Hollady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I lost my copy of this cookbook and have been looking for it for several years. It has some of the BEST recipes (especially the cookie cutter cookies) that are part of our family tradition, so it was really important to me. I bought TWO copies. One for myself, and one for one of my sons just to make sure a copy remains in the family.

This book is filled with unusual and festive recipes that you just don't find anywhere else. The recipes are old fashioned and don't have any modern convenience mixes in them. Every chapter has at least 6 recipes that I marked to immediately try!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Great, Cookbook 9 Dec 2010
By WendyMac - Published on Amazon.com
I received this cookbook back in the late 80's, for my birthday and began using it right away. It has never failed to produce great results exactly as the recipe is written and the little blurbs supplied for some of the recipes have also been right-on. It has supplied my family with several traditions for our holidays (cranberry's in Cream Salad, Shortbread cookies, caramels), and I am always asked to bring them to gatherings year after year. None of the recipes I've looked up have appeared on the internet so the book is a must for anyone interested in it's recipes. My copy is now falling apart so I am out for another one. Buy this cookbook and you will not be sorry!
