Holiday Baking

Written by: Francine Roberts

Chocolate snowballs, apple crisp,
fudge and brownies too.
It's that time of year again
when only homemade will do.

Apple pecan stuffing,
a treat to go with pork.
The tenderloin so perfect
you can cut it with a fork.

There's a streusel coffee cake
I've been making most of my life.
Once again it's time to sharpen
my best chopping knife..

I spend eleven months a year
trying not to  cook
but come December out I drag
my favourite recipes book.

The list goes on forever;
muffins, cookies, pies.
I turn into Julia Child
right before your eyes.

Chocolate snowballs, apple crisp,
fudge and brownies too.
Enough to feed an army
or maybe even two.
