A couple of years ago I wanted to really wow my husband with a new TV for Christmas.

The Swiss Colony’s gift packs have long been a family holiday favorite and this year is no different. I was trilled to see that the company now offers some sugar free options in their catalog but I wondered if the quality would be the same. Luckily, The Swiss Colony generously offered me both an assortment of their regular holiday cookies and a tin of the sugar free variety so that I might do a full comparison review. You might not believe what I found!
The Swiss Colony offers a wide assortment of Holiday Cookies, including sugar free options!
When that familiar red and white striped box arrived I am not ashamed to say that my husband and I high-fived. Cookies! We started by sampling the Holiday Cookies (#AW210). This colorful assortment of shortbread cookies came packaged in a Christmas Red tin tastefully imprinted with the company logo. The tin itself is a definite keeper and I was impressed with the variety of cookies included. The shortbread cookies are decorated with tinted icing, colored sugar and sprinkles. Some are dipped in chocolate, others artfully drizzled with just the right touch of icing. My favorite cookie, without a doubt, is the gingerbread sandwich cookie. Two thick soft gingerbread cookies sandwiched around a creamy vanilla filling. Yummmmy!
Holiday Cookies from The Swiss Colony
I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from The Swiss Colony’s sugar free holiday cookie assortment. Whatever I thought, I was totally unprepared for the fact that my family would actually prefer the sugar free cookies. Amazingly well done. There is almost no difference in the appearance of the sugar free cookies versus the regular holiday cookies, they only lack the extra sugar and sprinkle toppings. Meanwhile, the texture of the cookies is even better. They are a bit softer, a little more moist. Totally satisfying! Of course they still contain carbs and calories so as a diabetic I still have to watch my intake but it certainly seems easier to control my inner Cookie Monster with this sugar free option.

Lost In The Tsunami is the touching story of the intense bond that inevitably exists between a mother and child no matter how tense the day-to-day relationship. Anna is recently divorced and initially on a mission to discover her “true” self by, in part, severing parental ties to her daughter, Ronnie. It isn’t long before Anna discovers that before she can remake the relationship into one of friendship, of mutual respect, she must help Ronnie resolve the anger she feels as a child for her mother. Unfortunately, it may be too late. Ronnie is missing.
In fact, Ronnie has been missing for hours, perhaps days, before Anna discovers her disappearance, and her search quickly grows more and more frantic. Anna is left desperately trying to get to know her daughter in her absence so that she might find her and bring her home safely yet there is much that Ronnie has kept from her. Dorit Silverman masterfully fleshes out what drives both Anna and Ronnie in their orbital relationship and makes plain the mistakes that have come between them.
As Anna’s search leads her far out of her comfort zone and into her daughter’s footsteps we follow her through TelAviv and eventually deep into India. I felt Anna’s desperate hope with every lead, at every turn. Then her crushing pain upon learning that Ronnie’s last known path led her directly into the path of one of the deadliest tsunamis of our time. With the barest sliver of hope, Anna must face the probability of never finding Ronnie,of never even knowing what happened to her child. Every mother’s worst nightmare.
