We love the holiday season at
my house. Like many other families we have many food traditions centered
around the holidays. Some of the traditions date back 40+ years, such
as my sister and I along with our Gram making stuffed rolled dates for
Dad and tasty gingerbread cookies. Another tradition that dates back almost
50 years in our family is the classic Red
Another is my mother's glazed baked ham. It's a tradition that I still
continue, studding the ham with whole cloves, decorating it with pineapple
rings and cherry's and glazing it with a mixture of brown sugar, pineapple
juice, whole grain mustard and orange juice. Here is a classic Pineapple
Glazed Ham recipe from Epicurious.
We're creating new family traditions
too. I've included one our our favorite traditions that dates back 20
years or so. It's the famous (or infamous)
Mrs. Field's Cookies. My sister and I got together to make this recipe.
I'll never forget the first time I made them, they turned out fabulously.

Part of the magic of
the holidays is making new traditions as well as honoring the old ones.
