Many of my holiday memories are closely related to food. There are certain dishes that are holiday musts for me. Today, I’m linking up with Kelly to share some of my favorite holiday recipes. I love the Show Us Your Life link ups this time of year because I enjoy reading about the holiday traditions of other bloggers. Check them out if you get a chance today.
These are recipes that I hope will be Christmas traditions in my family for years to come.
Homemade chex mix is my favorite snack. I can’t resist the stuff. A recent favorite is Stephanie’s recipe for cheesy ranch chex mix.I also love just regular chex mix and muddy buddies. It’s all yummy!
There’s absolutely nothing like a good pecan pie. This is the recipe my family uses.
This fruit salad is the easiest thing I make, but it’s also one of the most delicious things. It’s a Christmas must have.
Red Velvet Cupcakes/Cake
Oh how I love my grandmother Ree’s recipe for red velvet cake. It’s the best. Trust me.
Frozen Hot Chocolate
This is a new tradition for my little family (me and M). I’m already looking forward to making it again this year. I’ve already gotten a replacement copy of the movie Serendipity so we can avoid a repeat of last year’s disappointment.
Super Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’ve made these cookies several times this football season, and they have become a new favorite.
Sigh. Pralines are simply excellent.
Other Must Haves
These are recipes I don’t have posts or photos for, but they are must haves every year. It didn’t feel right to not include them.
- Sand tarts
- White chocolate covered pretzels
- Peanut butter candy – I make this for M because my mother-in-law always made it for M. I know hers is better, but I do my best.
If you can’t already tell, we love to eat. With so many good cooks in my family, Christmas is always a delicious time of the year. I can’t wait!
