What Did You Cook Over the Holidays?

Before we dive back into work and school, let's pour one last glass of eggnog and reminisce about our holiday cooking adventures. Did you host your family holiday dinner? How did it go? Did you try any new recipes on your day off?

My biggest triumph was cooking the Christmas braid pictured above. It's adapted from an old Fleishmann's Yeast recipe that my mother baked only on Christmas morning. Since my parents were visiting me this year, instead of the other way around, I thought I'd surprise them with this for breakfast...with a few personal touches, of course!

If you're interested in the recipe, I wrote about it here:

But I want to hear about your cooking triumphs! What did you make over the holidays? Any good stories to share?
