I most love all those foods that are no-nos the rest of the year. Cookies, bakery goods, crestent rolls dripping with butter, pies, chips and dip. Sadly this year I have a bad tooth which I am hoping to survive til after the new year. :death:

Used to always have a Rib Roast with Yorkshire pudding. Any more though it's something we haven't had in a while that we would never spend that kind of money on. Last year it was colossal shrimp on the grill.This year it's steaks that are an inch and a half thick.

I so miss all the Czechoslovakian dishes my mom used to make, and all the family gathering around to eat and play poker, for starters. I only remember how to make two of her dishes, which she didn't write down. I remember from watching. She also made, from scratch, the tallest New York style cheesecakes that you have ever seen and would kill for. Know what I mean?

Me, I made a lot of different things, but Christmas Day was spent with family, and not in the kitchen. The big meal was always Thanksgiving. I'd make some quiches ahead of time, freeze them, and then on Christmas Day, pop them in the oven, no fuss, just all my time with family. Of course, one was always Quiche Lorranine. Naturally, there's always pies, and I make a killer pumpkin pie that all my kids voted number one. Then cookies, and Mississippi Mud Bars. That's a chocolate, marshmallow, and chopped nut heaven. I make a mean pumpkin roll too, filled with a cream cheese filling.

Oh, we must not forget my famous cream cheese tortilla roll-ups and all the dips for crackers and chips. I am getting so hungry now. Time to click "Post."

Being the connoisseur I am I once made a stuffing out of Gingerbread that was unanimously praised. It sounds vile I have to admit but it was a recipe from Nigella Lawsom *marry me* and it involved gingerbread, bacon, onion and various other things and it was absolutely gorgeous. That's about as creative as it gets for me, thank heavens for my Ma and her culinary skills on Christmas Day. :)

Just put everything in a bowl and mix together and form into balls and place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Absoultely delicious. :)

I've just gone into the kitchen to ask The Chef what we're having for Christmas! My husband's the cook here - his parents used to run a restaurant and his dad was the chef - and now he's retired, the kitchen is definitely his province and he cooks meat much better than I do. For Christmas day we're having smoked trout for starters, then guinea fowl with whatever else he decides, followed by crepe suzette which will be a bit of an experiment as he hasn't made those for years, but we do have backup desserts in the freezer.

Oooh, cheesecake. I haven't made one of those for years. I used to make a lot of cakes/biscuits/desserts when the offspring were younger and brought their friends around. Now our kitchen is finally finished, I must see if I can find where the cookery books are. Or maybe just buy some Nigella Lawson ones.
