    So many people think they don't like brussels sprouts - it's sad, because they're such a wonderfully tasty vegetable! I figure they must have had them prepared badly when they were younger, because everybody I fix them for change their minds about them. My latest conquest was my husband, who thought he didn't like them, either. He has since changed his mind, of course.

    Recipe #31209

    A family recipe dating back to the early part of the 20th century, by my great-grandmother. I have a tendency to think of this as Grandpa's salad, because he always prepared it for us. My mom and sister still make it for our holiday family gatherings, although now we usually use sugarfree Jello. (I've recently discovered that Perfection Salad is not something unique to our family - there are a lot of old recipes on net for it. They're generally similar to the one below.)

    Recipe #27320

    I asked my husband where he got his special cranberry recipe, and he said, "I made it up." So here it is. These are really, really good, and much better than anything you'll find coming out of a can. Give 'em a try on your holiday table!

    Recipe #47131

    Updated and corrected recipe! I watched Mom make the rolls for Christmas dinner this year, and have updated the recipe to make sure all the amounts and steps are just right. :) Mom originally got the recipe from Aunt Lee, and these are my favorite dinner rolls. They take a bit of time to prepare, but they're well-worth it. I know it's a lot easier to buy rolls from the Pillsbury Doughboy, but they're not nearly as good. :) This is what's on the table at our family gatherings. Prep time includes day-of-baking rising.

    Recipe #27122

    This is what we have at Christmastime with our steamed puddings. :)

    Recipe #48895

    I haven't had traditional ginger wine, but I decided to make a sort of infused ginger wine of my own, and the below is what I came up with. I tried it tonight, and YUM! :) Traditional ginger wine, produced before the holidays from scratch, is popular in some parts of England and Scotland. While this version isn't exactly traditional, this is a tasty addition to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays! Prep time includes letting it sit before serving.

    Recipe #48833

    I recently got two pounds of mini bell peppers at Costco, and after eating about half of them raw (yum! they're so sweet and tasty!) we got to the point where I needed to find something else to do with them. Here's what I came up with, and having just eaten one, I can assure you they're absolutely delicious! These can be either baked (which I usually do), or eaten uncooked.

    Recipe #99048

    These will get gobbled down as fast as you can put them out on a plate. :) At first I thought it would be silly for me to enter my recipe in for them, because it's so simple. But like my Mom's tartar sauce recipe which you can find here, my family likes deviled eggs which are not at all sweet. People always rave about them when I make them this way, so I think it's worth sharing the recipe. Picnic storing and serving tip: fit two filled halves together, wrap in waxed paper or other kitchen wrap, and twist the ends!

    Recipe #31179

    My mix is based on a recipe that my childhood best friend's mother, Mrs. Harper, had for Chex Mix. It became an annual ritual for me to call her to ask for the recipe yet again. :) This mix is so very, very yummy and decadent! Good thing I only make it once a year...

    Recipe #49543

    An easy and tasty Sunday morning breakfast you make the night before! From the White Lace Inn, Sturgeon Bay, Door County, Wisconsin.

    Recipe #27991

    Good for holidays, Mother's Day, and lazy Sunday mornings. :) Make it the night before and stick in the fridge, then just pop into the oven the next morning.

    Recipe #64818

    My husband Mike makes these fabulous flat (no-flour) Italian cookies every year for the holidays, and they're absolutely heavenly! These cookies are an excellent addition to food gifts, as they will keep for a long time. Silpat baking sheets are very helpful when making these little gems.

    Recipe #46593

    My husband Steingrim makes this fabulous fruit and nut cake every year for the holidays, and it's one fruit cake that you won't find people using for a door stop! No, our family members tussle over pieces of this stuff. :) The cake originates from Siena, in the Tuscan region of Italy, where it is very popular and is exported to many countries. It is a perfect accompaniment to after-dinner coffee.

    Recipe #46592

    Colorful and very tasty Italian-style cookies, wonderful all year round but especially nice during the holidays! :) Prep time includes chilling for the dough.
