Family Holiday Recipes
We’ve entered the holiday season, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Maybe you’re headed to celebrate with family or friends. What dish do you like to contribute? What are your favorite foods if you order or enjoy your meal at a restaurant?
Last year we stayed home because of the pandemic. Though we missed our family, we had a lovely time just the four of us. Wherever we are, we make what we think of as our traditional Thanksgiving dishes. Chad and I make our Brussels sprouts, and I make mashed potatoes and Thanksgiving dessert: Pumpkin Steamed Pudding topped with plenty of lightly sweetened whipped cream. And last year I made these delicious Buttermilk Rolls that were so good we voted them onto our family Thanksgiving menu permanently.
Anna always makes her family holiday recipes for Corn Pudding and Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie. I also now make Anna’s corn pudding for holiday gatherings! It’s so simple and delicious! I love her pumpkin pie too!
If you enjoy baking cookies for the holidays and making food gifts like pumpkin bread and homemade granola, we’ve got some recipes you’ll want to try this holiday season! Last year, I made small loaves of Spiced Pumpkin bread for Christmas gifts for our neighbors. This year, I also want to make Deb Perlman’s incredibly delicious Apple Cider Caramels to give as gifts (and to enjoy ourselves).
