Mistletoe Madness with Alissa Callen
What are your plans for Christmas 2014?
To not travel and to have a family Christmas on our farm.
Tell us about a usual Christmas in your home?
Christmas day is usually spent swimming, eating and chillaxing.
Any gift in particular that you’d love to see wrapped under the tree?
No 🙂 Just having everyone together is worth all the wrapped gifts under a tree.
What is a typical Christmas lunch and/or dinner at your house?
Each family member has their own “menu” and can choose their favourite foods to eat all day. So we can have anything from pancakes for breakfast through to potato gems for lunch.
Tell us, what is the one dish that gets served every single year? Is there a story behind this?
Trifle! The kids Granny always makes such a lovely one and each year we try to replicate her recipe and never quite succeed. Needless to say we have fun trying.

Her Mistletoe Cowboy
Corporate analyst, Ivy Bishop, intends spending Christmas holed up in an isolated Montana ranch house with only an abandoned puppy for company. When the festive season ends her broken heart might just have had just enough time to heal.
Ex-rodeo rider, Rhett Dixon, has put his playing days behind him. He has something to prove. Despite being the first son in three generations of ranchers, he is determined to succeed in ranching on his own merits.
But when Rhett’s new neighbor proves to be far-too-pretty and far-too-compassionate, his single-minded focus deserts him. And the more time Ivy spends with the workaholic, blue-eyed cowboy next door the more she realizes her heart isn’t actually broken – yet.
