Cheese is my favorite food any day of the year, but if there isn’t a cheese plate or brie en croute or something, it’s just not a holiday for me. :heart:

My husband is gluten free so instead of brie en croute we’ll be doing this brie melt thing @julia2 taught me how to make with gluten free rolls—can’t wait to try it!

Oh, and we’re an interfaith family, so latkes are also a MAJOR holiday fave (we’re making them as part of our Christmas dinner).

Shown below:

  • My “Christmas wreath” of rosemary with mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and olives;

  • Star cookies stacked to look like little Christmas trees;

  • The “House Cake” my mother has made since the 70s (which my sister now makes), which is two Sara Lee pound cakes cut to make the house shape, then covered with canned frosting and adorned with Hershey bars and other candy (the final step is the powdered sugar “snow”) :heart:

It’s a huge family tradition to make my Grandma’s sugar cookies. My Dad made these with us when we were kids. I’ve been making them for 27 years!

This may sound strange to many, but my favourite holiday food from my family is my Grandmother’s Shrimp Creole. Not your typical holiday food I know, but being from a beach community, it’s always been one of my favourite Christmas Eve traditions. This was the first Christmas since my Grandmother passed earlier this year, so I miss that tradition very much.
