    we make a garlic ham… Just slice the ‘skin’ and rub with garlic powder or minced garlic and cook as usual.

    • Dawn Sollitto says:

      My favorite holiday dinner memory is when my grandfather was still alive. He would make his famous sausage stuffing! So yummy! I miss him so much!

  2. My favorite holiday memory is the first year we moved to Ohio. I have 5 siblings and we were Army brats. This would be our first Christmas with our relatives here. Our Auntie Jack had all of the cousine, aunts, uncles, grandparents over to make candy. What fun.. we made Hard Tack in every flavor you can imagine, but the best part was we made Taffy oh what fun it was having that taffy pull then wrapping all of the different flavored pieces in wax paper. Great fun!
    Thanks for the chance

  3. My favorite holiday dish to make every year is a cheese ball.. Its so easy and my entire family loves it. I use 2 blocks of Cream Cheese softened, I small jar of Hormel Dried Beef, and Green Onions… that’s it.. I cut the Dried Beef into little tiny pieces with scissors The Tops of Green Onions also cut with the scissors.. Then the fun begins take your hands and squish it all into the cheese ball. Form into a ball or a log and serve with your favorite crackers.

  5. Like to make a classic pecan pie. That makes any meal special, I think. Of course, the company you keep is usually pretty important, too.

  6. Whoops…I answered the second one first…my eyes are getting old.

    Favorite memory was last year. There were no presents out Christmas Eve. Then after the kiddos went to bed, Santa brought out ALL of the gifts. You should have seen Izzy’s eyes on Christmas morning.

  7. Mami2jcn says:

    My favorite holiday dinner memory was eating Christmas Eve dinner at my godparents’ house as a child. They were Cuban and made a lot of yummy dishes like “congri” (black beans and white rice mixed in a delicious concoction).

  8. Mami2jcn says:

    I’m not much of a cook so there isn’t a holiday dish I serve up each year, other than maybe a Granny Smith apple pie.

    One of my favorite holiday dinner memories is the Christmas Eve’s we used to spend at my husband’s grandmothers house. Her tiny house would be packed with people…and lots of food. After a lot of Italian food, she would “present” the turkey. She dipped pineapple slices in alchol, put them on the turkey with wooden skewers, and would light them. Everyone would cheer when she bought the turkey to the table.

  45. Jackie says:

    I don’t do the cooking for the holidays…other than bringing an appetizer. One of my favorite dishes that my mother serves is her sweet potatos!

    My mother would get the biggest turkey out there – 22-24 lb and then have it cut in half. There was our Thanksgiving and our Christmas dinner in one purchase. The food was standard layout with Turkey, dressing, sweetpotatoes, greenbeans cranberries and a variety of pies. The family gathering together was what made it special. Now that I have children everyone seems to have moved to their individual State and are doing holidays on their own.

  71. Betty says:

    The holidays are a time of pumpkin pies.

  72. Marla Y says:

    My favorite holiday dinner was just this past Thanksgiving. We invited a young couple from our church that were new in town and had no family and a friend of my husband’s who also had no family. It was so wonderful opening our home up to those that needed the feel of family and friends. We had a nice meal, listened to Christmas music and played poker (just for fun). It was a very memorable dinner for me. Thank you for the awesome giveaway.


  73. Marla Y says:

    Since I discovered the pumpkin pies at Costco, they have become a “must-have” for our holiday dinners. I can hardly make one homemade for the price. They are big pies and so creamy and they taste so good. Oh, I’m getting hungry for a piece. Thanks again!

  75. One of my favorite holiday meal memories (well it wasn’t funny at the time LOL), was when I decided to host Thanksgiving dinner. My mother in law was going to help me but she ended up taking a long nap. I completely messed up the turkey, stuffing and pretty much everything else. It was a learning experience for sure!

  76. I follow you on Twitter and I tweeted your giveaway:

  77. My favorite holiday meal – that we have every year is a potato casserole – it is made with sour cream and cream cheese. Can’t go wrong with those right?

  79. Phyllis Adams says:

    One of my favorite holiday recipes is Mock Pecan Pie. When my kids were little , we never seemed to have enough money to buy pecans at Christmas. So instead I would substitute old fashioned oatmeal for the pecans in the Pecan pie recipe.
    It tastes great , it’s inexpensive and since it doesn’t have nuts if you have little ones they can enjoy it too.

    My favorite holiday recipe is Russian Tea. I could drink a gallon of this stuff a day. It makes the whole house smell wonderful. The spices that make it great are whole cloves, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, and allspice. Toss those into pineapple juice (big can), unsweetened orange juice (big can), tea bags (16 small), white sugar (1/2 cup), frozen lemonade (can) and water (not sure on amount, probably 16 cups. All the spices are to your liking (go easy on the allspice). Yum!

  125. Eileen says:

    My favorite recipe memory was while in high school I was invited to my boyfriends parents for Christmas. His mom made the most FANTASTIC wrapped cream caramels! I had no idea there WAS such a thing. The next year she gifted me a whole batch of my own with her recipe and a candy thermometer. That was just over 30 years ago and every year I have used that same thermometer and her recipe to make the same treat for my family. She was the best mother in law a person could ask for.She passed away, and every year I bring out my supplies to make holiday treats, I think about how sweet SHE was! I just made a batch of caramels with my 22 year old the other night to teach her how to make these treats, and told her the story about how how I got the recipe and the old thermometer I still use to make my family’s favorite Christmas candy.

  126. Eileen says:

    My extended family’s buffet meal Christmas favorite are the meatballs I make every year AND the tray of homemade candies I am asked to bring (as a joke they say I am not invited unless I bring “the goods”.

  127. I will never forget the year we went to Louisiana to spend Christmas with my husband’s family. It was like a different world! No dressing or green beans, only jumbalaya, gumbo, shrimp stuffing and brisket…very different, yet very memorable. We had a great time!

  128. I make a squash casserole that my family asks me to bring to gatherings each year – but MY favorite would be the homemade mac and cheese!!

  235. I love my step dad’s beans. He always add a little sugar to his pot and salt pork. He also put a little onion in it.

    He lets it cook for 5 hours.

    It is so good.

  240. During the holidays I always think of the dinners we had at my Grandma’s. She grew all her own vegetables in the garden and they were so yummy! She made her own butter and jam and rolls. And we sat in the dining room on the chairs that were covered with the needlepoint she’d done :)

  241. At our house we always make potato dressing! It’s an old family recipe (from the grandma mentioned in the first entry) :)

    Favorite holiday memory was last Christmas when my family was all together for our annual Christmas Open House there was a knock at the door and it was my 98 year old grandmother standing there and yelling, “Surprise!!” My aunt and uncle had decided to drive her up from Ft. Lauderdale as a huge surprise which is was and made great memories for all the kids to spend the holiday with their great-grandma.

  275. One of my favorite memories is my mom sneaking me some of the turkey gravy on toast prior to the family dinner. It was always so good and it was our little secret. We would eat one slice just the two of us while dad watched football.

  276. Every year I serve some sort of fondue. This year it was smoked gouda fondue and it was SOOO good with fresh French bread cubes and granny smith apple slices!

    Well I do not have the recipe but I remember and love the thought of my Mamaw’s yeast rolls. She made them every holiday and they just melted in your mouth and were light and fluffy. My mom has the recipe but she just cannot master it. Mamaw really had a secret there.

    My favorite holiday recipe is an Italian dessert called crustada. It’s basically a dough spread onto a baking sheet and topped with fruit fillings. I use cherry and lemon. Then more dough is placed on top in a lattice shape. It’s delicious and I make it every year.
