Henry Glass Designers' Progressive Dinner Party - Day 8 Kim Diehl


Our final day of the Holiday Progressive Dinner Party is hosted by Kim Diehl. Kim's seasonal collection is called "Farmstead Harvest" which will ship in April 2018.

Farmstead Harvest Collection


Favorite Christmas Memory

While growing up, my parents made Christmas a really magical time of year. One of my favorite memories as a little kid was driving home from grandma’s house on Christmas Eve, when my dad suddenly exclaimed, “Look! I just saw Santa’s sleigh and Rudolph fly behind those clouds!!” I spent the whole rest of the drive with my nose pressed against the glass, fogging up the car window while I looked for Santa.




            Now that I’m all grown up and a nana with two toddler grandies, I go all out to make things just as special for them; this means lots of quilts, evergreens, sparkling lights, and yummy treats like my Caramel Apple Cheesecake. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
            And because I’m sure you’re all on Santa’s “good” list, here’s an extra holiday gift from me to you – free downloadable directions for this fun little Farmstead Game Board quilt, created with my upcoming Farmstead Harvest collection.

Download link is below


            To end this dessert course on a REALLY sweet note, please share your favorite holiday treat with me between now and Tuesday, December 12th. (See Giveaway Box below) I’ll randomly choose two winners and Santa will deliver a signed copy of my Simple Harvest and Simple Christmas Tidings books to each of you. Ho, ho, ho!!!

~ Kim

We love Christmas cookies and our favorite variety is called Cappuccino Flats. They come from the book BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS COOKIES FOR CHRISTMAS published in the mid-80s. It's still my favorite cookie book ever. I believe you can still find copies for sale online. I've seen that the recipe is posted online at Taste of Home as well.

Kim Diehl is one of my favorite designers.

Jackie Bennett-Hanning said...

My favorite holiday treat is the peanut butter fudge my dad makes for me. To make it easy on him, ;) I present him with 10 pounds of sugar and the largest jar of peanut butter I can find and return containers for a refill. Thank you, Kim, for the recipe and pattern and to Henry Glass for the opportunity.

Deb G. in VA said...

I love Kim's fabric, books and patterns! My favorite holiday treat is Prize Winning Fudge from the Farm Journal Handmade Candy cookbook. Thanks for the great giveaways!

Christine said...

Our favorite Christmas treat is trifle. I keep it homemade by baking the sponge cake, cooking the custard, and whipping the cream. Add pineapple juice, raspberry jam and sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Mmmmm! And only at Christmas!

Cheryl Hammond said...

We love chocolate bundt cake for the Holidays!

Renea said...

Liz F said...

I am so glad that I found my way to the Henry Glass & Co. blog from Facebook! I'll be spending some time going through all 8 days admiring the fabrics and taking note of the recipes. It was Kim Diehl's fabric that first caught my eye but the photo of her cheesecake was irresistible. Thanks for all the free pdf patterns too!

Liz F said...

Best Christmas dessert was my Mom's "Frozen Pineapple" Dessert...jelly roll, crushed pineapple with whipped cream decorated with maraschino cherries. It was never meant to be frozen but that was how it was first served and we decided that we liked it best that way.

Liz S said...

It's not a dessert, but I love corn casserole. So easy and always a hit!

Becky said...

I make pralines using my mother-in-laws recipe. Pure sugar!

Helen Kowitz said...

Lynn Osborn said...

I love Kims fabric and patterns. Her colors are amazing

Karen in Breezy Point said...

The one treat that I have made forever is a big batch of Spritz cookies using my vintage Betty Crocker recipe book. My new holiday favorite that I made for Thanksgiving and will make again for Christmas is White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. It's written for an Instant Pot, but I'm sure it can be adapted for the oven. https://tidbits-marci.com/pressure-cooker-white-chocolate-raspberry-cheesecake/print/1597/
It's delish!!

Mary said...

Love the free pattern and the Cheesecake looks delicious. Thank you Kim!

BizyStitches said...

This is a fun time for the Holidays. THanks for letting me enter my name. I get inspiration for blogs like this.

Glenda McCarthy said...

Our favorite treat us “Almond Brittle”, and I shared it with Kim after a workshop for our Guild, Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild in Wellsboro, PA. Kim had some at the workshop, and called the maker a Goddess-I love being called a Goddess by Kim Diehl!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

My favorite Christmas dessert is Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting sprinkled with chopped pecans.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

I am using some of Kims fabrics at the moment and I just love them. I can think of nothing more lovely than her Christmas book and her Christmas fabrics. Yummy!

Linda Thompson said...

My very most favorite Christmas Treat was to enjoy Mincemet Pie with my dad. I think after 22 years, I will do a mincemeat pie once again.

My MILs recipe sugar cookie with powdered sugar is a favorite as well.

Linda said...

Frosted sugar cookies are a big hit at our house around Christmas :) Love your new fabric line. Thanks for sharing your recipes, too. You are a great cook in addition to being an amazing quilter and designer.

Kerry said...

Can't wait ! Beautiful!

Mary said...

Great dinner! Dough gobs are our favorite Christmas cookie! I should go make a double batch!

Sewgirl said...

Wow! That cheesecake sounds amazing! My favorite holiday treat is peppermint bark! I also like gingerbread cookies, but I think the bark wins out between the two of them. Thanks for sharing the awesome giveaway!

Liz Dyer said...

Henry Glass, you saved the best for last. Love Kim Diehl's fabrics and designs.
To me it just isn't Christmas without decorating sugar cookies. My recipe which came from my Nana makes 12 dozen cookies. So there is lots to decorate. I really miss not having my son here to help me.

Cheryl Strayer said...

Give me more Kim Diehl! Love. Love. ❤️

Treadleworks said...

Just love this progressive dinner and fabrics and quilts! Thank you and Merry Christmas to Kim Diehl and Henry Glass!

Chocolate Pound Cake, my mother's recipe. Makes me feel closer to het since she's now in Heaven. Love all of Kim's books.

Cristina Scarfon said...

Thank you!!

Tu-Na Quilts said...

For 35 years, my family has painted Christmas cookies using egg yolk "paint" (they are baked after painting). It's been amazing to see how the kids have progressed from poking holes into the cookies and dabs of the paint to creating beautiful creations as they've grown thru the years.

Lin said...

I love Kim's books and patterns. She's really great.

Karen McMahon said...

My favorite holiday treat is my homemade fudge. Thanks for the yummy recipe and the quilt pattern and thanks for the chance to win.

What acute little quilt! My favorite holiday treat are cookies I only make once a year, cherry shortbread dipped in whites chocolate. So addictive I want to hide them so I can have them all to myself!

Lori said...

that cheese cake looks awesome, thanks for the recipe. my favorite holiday treat is a custard that my sister makes. She usually makes me a whole one to take home.

Your Farmhouse harvest collection is so warm and inviting - like all of yur collections :0) My favorite holiday recipe is for chocolate caramel bar. I've made it 3 times already this season...

JANET said...

I can't get enough of a certain popcorn that is made only at Christmas by one of the universities in Texas. It is kettle corn, drizzled with chocolate, white chocolate, and caramel. It has a distinctive taste. So good! I love Kim Diehl's designs, quilts, books and fabric!!

lfhpueblo said...

Kim Diehl's fabrics are so warm feeling. The recipe for dessert sounds yummy, as is anything with Caramel. I love homemade fudge in December, but this recipe sounds like it would give it a run for its' money.

JANET said...

Your Caramel cheesecake looks delicious! Definitely going to try that recipe.

Farm Quilter said...

Thank you for the recipe and the free pattern!! Merry Christmas!

My favourite holiday treat are Nanaimo bars. I make them every Christmas! Here's a secret - they taste just as good out of the freezer and still frozen.

Jo Anne Hawks said...

Chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Homemade caramels--dipped in chocolate, even better.

teachpany said...

The cheesecake sounds delicious. I love Spritz cookies, cheesecake, Mom's crumb cake, and Toll House Pie. Thanks for the great give-aways.

Lewjacks said...

I love your books and your distinctive quilts. I would love a copy of your signed books.
lewjacks@suddenlink.net

Beth said...

My favorite holiday treat is a dessert from the old Mike Roy cookbook--does anyone remember him? He was one of the original "celebrity chefs" and my mom listened to him on the radio. We called it "Christmas Salad" and she made it only once a year so it would be special. It involves sliced oranges, pineapple, canned cherries, and whipped cream, with lemon juice to cut the sweetness. It sounds sketchy but it is light and fruity and one of my favorite holiday treats. If my description hasn't put you off, feel free to email me and I'll send you a copy of the recipe!

Material Girl said...

Cheesecake is my favorite treat. Love ones with salted caramel and I make a really silky marbled chocolate one too. I also love a good shortbread!

mangozz said...

Cheesecake is my favorite, especially at Christmas. I have most of Kim Diehl's books but not these two. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

MaryIda said...

I love Kim Diehl's patterns and fabrics. All her fabric lines go so well together and you can pick them out without even looking at the salvages.

Angie&Gary Short said...

My favorite treat is sugar cookies with red and green sprinkles! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

MaryIda said...

We don't do a lot of desserts at Christmas with all the turkey but I usually make my Mom's Gumdrop Cake and my husband's Grandmothers a Scotch cookies.

Joanna said...

My favorite holiday treat is fruitcake. My mother always made it and I like it. It's fun to make as well. Your over the top cheesecake looks spectacular.

Angie&Gary Short said...

I have enjoyed the blog hop. Enjoy the holidays. angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

Love everything by Kim Diehl. My favorite Christmas treat is my Mom's shortbread cookies. She doesn't bake them anymore so I have to when I want them.

anna brown said...

Wow love her quilts and great fabric too.. happyness04431@yahoo.com

Susan Lewis said...

Kim, your books and fabrics are amazing. Wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. My Christmas dessert memories include shortbread and Chinese Chews. Mom also used to make candied fruit and nut cake aged in cheesecloth soaked in rum and kept high in the cupboard. We could only eat small pieces because it was so rich. Wonderful memories.

Liz Dyer said...

Love Kim and her designs. I love traditional decorated sugar cookies, it isn't Christmas without them.

marogez said...

My favorite holiday treat is homemade turtles. These are a big hit and I make the caramel from scratch. 😋

Shirley in Canada said...

Kelly said...

Kim, I LOVE your fabrics and designs. You are such an inspiration.

For my kids I make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Even at 33 and almost 31, if I'm not baking them, my daughter is. For my husband I would bake his mom's oatmeal raisin cookies. I just realized how empty baking will be within him to bake them for.

Kathy MacKie said...

We must always have Nanaimo Bars...it’s a must.

Bec said...

This year I’m loving Peanut Butter Rolo cookies!

I like fudge.

Angela Bowling said...

My husband makes pecan sandies for me and me alone. I also make cookies and peanut butter fudge. The books by Kim Diehl's books. Scrappy quilts are my favorite.

marie said...

The hubs makes black bottom pie for me at Christmas. I make special Italian cookies. Winning your books would be a wonderful Christmas gift to me.

Judy Zoll said...

I'm not sure what my favorite treat is, the only constants in my holiday baking is Toasted Pecan Clusters and pumpkin pie. Those are made for the special people in my life. I try other recipes every year looking for my favorite, but so far I think my favorite treat is a slice of fabric!

Lynette T said...

I LOVE being a gramma.....especially at Christmas....Merry Christmas!

cjmont said...

my fave holiday treats are my mom's cranberry nut bread and easy magic cookie bars or hello dollys.

Gr8Potholders said...

Love all things Kim Diehl!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

That apple caramel cheesecake recipe sounds very yummy!!!

Bec said...

I love yam casserole with the pecan/brown sugar topping. It's like a dessert pie without the crust and good warm or cold. I always look forward to making it. :)

Thanks for the cheesecake recipe. I have got to try that...SOON!

anna brown said...

Suger cookies yum love this fabric... happyness04431@yahoo.com

Lori said...

I love my sisters custard pie. she only makes it on thanksgiving, Christmas and easter. usually she will make a whole one for me to take home with my family.

JANET said...

Love those Snowball cookies. The ones that have pecans in them, you roll them in a ball and bake. When cool, roll in powdered sugar. Unfortunately, I could eat a dozen in one sitting, without even trying!

mumbird3 said...

The Caramel Apple cheesecake - yummy!

Debbie E said...

I love my mom's fudge. It is so creamy and delicious. It would be dangerous if she made it more than once a year.

JANET said...

White bark with almonds. Yummmm!

Lynette T said...

Joy to the world! Peace on Earth! Food AND fabric....how great is that!!
