Home Cooking: Special Occasion and Personalized Dishes

Home Cooking: Special Occasion and Personalized Dishes

Sep 4, 2008

For many of us, celebrations mean an extra special meal cooked at home. Even an ordinary day feels special with a bowl of ice cream, preferably homemade.

But what about the dishes you use to eat and share these special meals and treats? Do they (literally) say anything about you?

We celebrated many a childhood birthday eating our favorite dishes off of a bright red plate that proclaimed, "You are special today." We found this really exciting as a kid and a little embarrassing as a teenager (there may have been a few eye rolls), but these days we'd be happy to break it out for a meal or two. Because really, who doesn't want to feel special for a day?

Whether it's a unique plate or a personalized dish for your favorite treat, do you have any dishes that make your home cooking extra special?
