We would like to wish all you ‘Mad Meat Genius’ readers a Merry Christmas. Another year has passed and the ‘Big Green Egg’ was not under the tree. A tear was wiped from my brow but Holiday cheer will prevail. That is because we have some Christmas Stollen from ‘Ponsford’s Place Bakery’. Stollen is traditional German holiday bread. Ponsford’s describes it as: STOLLEN Full of amazing Dried Fruits (not the fake stuff) (apples, cherries, apricot, cranberries, and raisins) that have been macerated with Lemon Zest, Rum,
Vanilla, almond paste, and some other trade secrets. ($10.00):

Ponsford’s Place Bakery is located in San Rafael California. It is a tiny little shop that is only open Friday & Saturday. They are unique because they use no processed white flour. All the baked goods are made with whole wheat flour. This can be a challenge and they have risen to the task. Ponsford’a offers not only stollen and breads but various savory items such as meat pies, quiche, turnovers and much more.

Scary Bread Santa
The stollen was sweet and satisfying. It definitely helped me through my yearly green disappointment. We are definitely returning to Ponsford’s Place to sample more of their offerings. “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.”

Merry Christmas to you and your family ChileB. I feel your pain, I didn't get my new Restoration Hardware country rustic natural finish dining room table this year. But I did get a bright red Le Creuset 7.5 qt. French Oven. :)

Lea Ann, Is that dining room table from the Elway collection? You will love your Le Crueset. They sure are heavy.

Zoomie, We hope Buzz, Cora and you have great Holidays.

PresidentofCookies, I am wearing bacon socks right now.

Three Dogs BBQ, This bread was like a light version of fruit cake. I love fruitcake. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
