My Christmas Cookbook contains many breakfast and brunch items because this is actually our Christmas meal. Every Christmas morning our family gathers for gift opening and food around midmorning. Then everyone clears out goes to other family members homes for more eating and I clean up, sit back with a special cup of coffee and a book and enjoy the peace and quiet. Hope you enjoy looking through this cookbook.
This candy is always made for Christmas at our house. They taste a bit like Almond Joy candy bars. They are very yummy. I really don't have any idea how many this recipe makes, but I know it is a lot. These make great gifts placed in a Holiday tin.
No baking necessary and always a big hit!! My niece made these last year for the holidays and I thought they were adorable. We don't like red hots, so I use mini M&M's. This also allows you to use various colors for the eyes and nose.
We have been making this fudge at the holiday season for years, if cooking time is followed directly this will produce a wonderful fudge that tastes just as good maybe even better than the fudge prepared with a candy thermometer but you won't need one for this! --- this is sure to become a favorite at the holiday season --- use only store-bought full-fat eggnog for this :)
I discovered this recipe in Good Housekeeping many years ago. Guests for breakfast are always surprised and in awe of this Coffee Cake - I shape according to my mood or the holiday. Prep time does NOT include rise or chill times.
This is a recipe that I adopted and I have made a couple of changes on it per Dreamgoddess' suggestions. I am putting the celery as an optional item, and making a note to use crushed pineapple in case you can't find the mandarin oranges with pineapple.
