Use a food processor to slice the russels and authentic maple syrup for a robust, light seasonal salad. From Jason Leppig, Marketing Manager Lemon Cakes The lemon cakes from the Game of Thrones cookbook are awesome. Use organic ingredients where possible (lemons and sugar) and pick up some local, organically produced butter, eggs, and milk. You'll likely find these at your neighborhood organic market. If you like lemon, definitely double the amount of lemon in the recipe. Share your favorite holiday recipe below! Download the E-ssential, Simple Pleasures for your Kindle here.
