These are my recipes set aside for the holidays! They include recipes for holiday breakfasts and brunches. Soups for cold winter nights. Holiday dinner main dishes and side dishes. And of course cookies, pies and other desserts for munching and gift-giving!
This is old-fashioned, from scratch, comfort food. This has been a family favorite for years. I like to take this to other families when they are in need of a meal. It's always a winner. I like making it with leftover turkey, too! I often add some cooked diced potatoes.
Such an easy & quick candy, nice for any holiday thanks to the variety of holiday colors m&m's come in. This comes from an old magazine - was it Taste of Home or Quick Cooking? I can't remember, but they sure are tasty & cute! While the recipe calls for small pretzel rings, you'll get equally great results with mini twists and even Rold Gold butter checker pretzels if available in your neck of the woods.
I know there are a ton of sugar cookie recipes here, but I couldn't find this one, and it's my favorite! It makes a nice thick and soft sugar cookie, that's perfect for all the holidays. Frost these with your favorite vanilla frosting (I often just used the store-bought stuff...shhhhh!). Cooking time includes chilling time. I'm guessing on the amount, but I'll adjust when I make these soon!
This is a very tasty dish that I've had lots of compliments on, even tho I cheat and use jarred sauce (shhh)...I think the slow simmering of the flavorful meatballs really makes this taste homemade all the way!!! This makes a lot, so I usually use the leftovers to make meatball subs.
This is a great quick recipe that's meatless and light. You can lighten it even more by using lower fat ingredients. Great for kids to make! This is a microwave recipe, but can be made in the oven. Also, ricotta cheese is easily substituted for the cottage cheese, if you prefer!
I can't believe in all the Snickerdoodle recipes listed here this one isn't among them. This is the best. Every time I take these somewhere, people declare these are the best snickerdoodles they have ever had! I think the trick is to not over bake...bake until just starting to crack on top!
The addition of cocoa and cinnamon makes this a Mexican classic! You can make this into one 10-inch bundt, two 9x5 loaf cakes, or four 8x4 loaf cakes. NOTE: Don't overbake or this will be dry. Posted for 'Zaar World Tour II.
A delicious take on banana bread...in muffins! So wonderful you don't need frosting or butter on top! You may use all chocolate or half chocolate and half butterscotch, if you like. We prefer all butterscotch!
I've had this recipe for years...it's absolutely the best!!! No need for cream cheese or frosting...mmmmmm good! I keep butterscotch chips on hand just for this recipe. My boys love it when we have overripe bananas...they know what's coming!
