Holiday Recipe Roundup


Yes, we've been eating healthier in the Organic household, but Christmas is not a time to give up traditions. It just wouldn't be Christmas without these sweets:

M&M Chex Mix - wonderfully corn syrupy (sweet and salty)

Reindeer Fodder - White Chocolate delight (sweet and salty)

Homemade Chocolates - Peanut butter (also try Smitten Kitchen's Buckeyes) and new this year, Oreo truffles (mint and regular)

Homemade Fernwood Mint Squares - super easy and therapeutic to make

What are your holiday must makes?

Mmm. With recipes. Thank you!

We make the salty chex mix because I'm salty, not so much sweet and it is a nice contrast or balance to all the sweets dropped off at my doorstep. I used to make clam chowder Christmas Eve, but then started ordering it from McGrath's because I was busy doing all the other cooking. And now McGrath's is closed, so who knows...

Also, a breakfast strata and Finnish pulla and a cherry braided bread grace our breakfast table.

Along with the traditional frosted sugar cookies.

I'm already hungry (and a bit weary) just thinking about it!

Oh my. Some of those I'm scared to try. Not sure my willpower can handle it!

I might have to add these to my treat plates. I don't know what it is, but I have been a major baking mode this year.

Oreo truffles are always a must.

I'm going to have google Finnish pulla. I want your chicken pot pie recipe.

When I came over, I was fully expecting Oreos dipped in chocolate. Which is a fabulous treat!
And then...you pulled a fat one and crushed 'em with cream cheese?

NICE!
ps. I love your andes.

I have always wanted to try those mints!
We have too many things I like to make at Christmas, so we rotate somewhat. The ones we always have to have are Chex Muddy Buddies, and homemade cinnamon rolls.
Ones we rotate are homemade toffee, truffles, krumkake, rosette cookies, and many more.
My sister makes a cookie that is called a Raspberry Stripper, and we ALWAYS have them on Christmas Eve and joke about the name all evening too. You know it isn't Christmas without a good stripper!

I really don't have a holiday 'must make' since I don't, um, really make anything.

BUT -my 'must buy' is Almond Roca - oh how I love the Almonda Roca - only at Christmas time though
