In case you think I’m talking about plates, glasses, and all that good stuff, let me set the record straight. I’m talking about food—yummy Christmas dishes guaranteed to send you into a food-induced nap. I know I shouldn’t say this, but Christmas desserts are my favorite. I love sweets, and unfortunately they love me too, especially my hips. Turkey is fine, ham is good, but nothing beats homemade cakes and pies. Of course, by “homemade” I mean from a box. It’s been so long since I’ve had a real everything-from-scratch pie that I wonder if I even still have a rolling pin. For you real cooks out there, what cakes and pies do you make from scratch? And by scratch I mean make your own crust etc.?
When you think about the side dishes, what are your favorites? Me…I’m a homemade macaroni and cheese kind of girl. Actually, now that I think of it, stuffing is at the top of my list of favorites, followed by mac and cheese, and then…candied yams. Ooh, I better stop. I’m making myself hungry.
Does anyone have a recipe you’d like to share?
