Cooking Fun

This season is my favorite time of the year. The tradition of spending time with friends and family brings a sense of warmth and comfort. Growing up, we alternated holidays between my grandmothers and our home. I really enjoyed the holidays with the traditional southern style dinners my grandmother prepared with creamy macaroni and cheese, zesty collard greens, homemade biscuits and sweet potato pie. The holiday meals my mother prepared were a bit more refined as she used Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines as her recipe guide for new, inventive ideas that included; roasted oyster stuffing, homemade chicken liver pate, crown rack of lamb, Turducken, and other delightful morsels.

Spending time with the family is a special occasion, especially for children. Make their experience memorable and fun!

Children have an appetite for fun, so get them involved in the preparation of the meal, decorating the children’s table, and serving the appetizers. Have them help set-up a children’s dessert bar with:

A Children’s Dessert Buffet

• Cut-out sugar cookies
• Ice cream bar with toppings
• Hot Chocolate with festive handled mugs
• Homemade whipped cream
• Sprinkles


Great ideas for hostess gifts

• Send the host a floral arrangement the day ahead
• Seek out a quality wine that complements the meal
• Make a breakfast basket for the host to enjoy the morning
• Purchase colorful paper hand towels with soaps
