I was tickled when my friend came over for an afternoon of crafting, but I was caught totally by surprised when she brought over this adorable gift. The cookbook is too cute and features recipes from each state. It's called The All-American Christmas Cookbook by Georgia Orcutt and John Margolies. Each section features a little history about that state and a recipe that represents it. The California section is about the impact California agricultural has had in America. The recipe that follows is Fuyu Persimmon and Radicchio Salad. Each section also has vintage postcards. The dish towel was wrapped around the book and has a recipe for candy cane cookies. She got both of these cute gifts at a favorite local store called William Glen. It is a cross between William Sonoma and Crate and Barrel.
