Thanksgiving Recipes

Everyone has holiday traditions, many of which have been passed through generations. These recipes hold a story that have been relayed via conversations over the dinner table. My Thanksgiving Recipes are based on tried and true family recipes. I make my great grandmother’s overnight fruit salad and my mom’s spinach souffle for every holiday.

If you’re new to cooking or setting up house, then it’s time to make your own traditions. Make some recipes from your childhood, then make some new recipes until you find a few that must be made every holiday.

Our favorite Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe  rotates between an easy Dry Brined Turkey and a traditional Honey Brined Turkey.  With leftovers, try this comforting Turkey Tortilla Soup. A turkey is a must on Thanksgiving, so why not try a tried and true recipe.

Christmas Recipes

Then when Christmas rolls around, food gifts are perfect for giving to friends and neighbors. Make Toffee, Caramels, and loads of holiday cookies from the kitchen. All these tasty Christmas Recipes are meant to be shared! Whether for cookie exchanges, holiday parties or meals on Christmas Eve and Christmas.

Holiday Food is often a splurge, especially with the entrees. A Prime Rib of Beef for Christmas Day or Lamb Chops for Easter are some of best holiday recipes! Try something new and maybe you’ll start a new tradition!

My family loves Beef Recipes which are perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day or on Christmas Day. Don’t forget a chocolate dessert!  They’re appropriate for any occasion.

Halloween deserves a fun treat, and this Spiderweb Cookie Cake is extremely popular. It’s like a huge chocolate chip cookie!! Kids will love this non-spooky Halloween dessert!
