Christmas is a joyous time full of generous giving, goodwill toward all people, and the cheerful sights, scents, and flavors of the holiday season. What better way to experience this festive time than by creating family memories through time-honored, traditional holiday recipes made in the home with love and care? Many families have traditions of baking Christmas cookies or a special holiday sweet bread together, and it becomes a treasured part of their lives that is passed on to the next generation. In my family, we had a tradition of a large, delicious Christmas breakfast after opening presents instead of the usual Christmas dinner, and my brother and I would help our mother bake dozens of miniature loaves of her amazing egg nog bread to give to our friends and family. It’s a special memory that I have been happy to share with my own children as they grow up, and it’s something we all look forward to during the holidays.
