Additional Holiday Recipes
The holiday season is based on traditions. Perhaps the one that brings us closest to family and friends is the traditional holiday feast. We spend a great portion of our time cooking, baking and, the best part, sharing and devouring our finest recipes, some of which have been passed down through many generations. These are some of my favorite menus and recipes for Christmas, most of which are very easy and many that can be made ahead so you can enjoy the festivities. All of the menus come with preparation notes and are equally delicious for any celebration. Merry Christmas!

Christmas Dinner Buffet
New Year's Eve and Day celebrations provide occasions to share and indulge in culinary delights, whether in a casual, party or intimate atmosphere. I have posted three very different menus with easy or make ahead recipes so you can enjoy the festivities. The first is a simple and delicious late night supper. The second is a party buffet with assorted finger foods, perfect for ushering in the New Year. As for New Year's Day, tradition calls for eating certain foods which are thought to bring good luck and fortune for the upcoming year. My favorite menu is based on my Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, to which I added a few traditional southern dishes. Good luck or not, it is all delicious. Each menu is complete with notes and preparation tips.
