Holiday Cooking: What Are You Looking Forward To?

Pin it button big

Christmas and Hanukkah are on their way, and since it is officially December, let's talk about holiday food! I love Christmas foods, especially the old-fashioned kind: fruitcake, plum pudding, and the leg of lamb my uncle roasts for our family gathering. Christmas candy gets me excited too, especially candy canes - proper old-fashioned peppermint canes, not the icky cherry flavored kind.

What are you looking forward to this season? Is there any treat that you simply will not make until the holidays officially arrive? Traditions and food go hand in hand, especially at this time of year, and it is great fun to get a glimpse into other people's holiday cultures. What do you bake? What did your mother and grandmother bake?
