No, I’m not Italian. Yes, I’m a wannabe. Now that we’ve got that out-of-the-way, let’s bond because if you’re reading this, chances are, you admire the Italian culture and food as much as I do.
The year I did “An Italian Christmas” theme for our Alberta Food Tours pre-Christmas shopping tours for food lovers we were embraced by my Italian business owner friends. A lot of these recipes either came from them or were inspired by them. They are good, very good or in Italian, bene – molto bene!

For my December Alberta at Noon column on CBC Radio One today, I’ll share two recipes for those that would like to add a homemade touch to their gift giving this season. I’ll post some fun gift ideas you can buy in other posts this week.
The first D-I-Y gift is called Spiced Apples and you can find that recipe and step-by-step instructions here.
The second recipe is for something I consider truly scrumptious – my Holiday Biscotti – and you’ll find all the information you need to make them in this post.
