Snowflakes are swirling, carolers are singing and shoppers are crowding into shops...Christmas is coming! If you're like us, you'd love to recreate the holiday magic you remember from Grandma's home, but don't have all day to spend in the kitchen.
Christmas at Grandma's is filled with simple-to-make recipes for every festive occasion. For Christmas morning breakfast, serve Christmas Sausage Soufflé and Overnight Sticky Buns. After sledding or cutting down the tree, warm everyone up with mugs of Yellow Pea Soup. An open-house buffet with Ambrosia Cheese Dip and Grandma's Cocktail Nibbles is perfect for merrymaking with friends.
Busy-day dinners are a snap with Granny's Baked Macaroni & Cheese or Mom's One-Pot Chicken Supper. Make the big day special with Nonna's Christmas Eve Spaghetti, Mama's Baked Brown Sugar Ham or Tangy Glazed Chicken. Ginger-Orange Cranberries and Corn & Broccoli Casserole round out a festive menu.
What we all remember most about holidays with Grandma is the desserts, right? Try family favorites like Cranberry Cream Pie and Apple Spice Cake...yum! Cookies are a must, so we've rounded up Sugar Doodle Drops and Chocolate Gingerbread Men. They're so much fun to make and eat!
You'll also find sweet memories of holidays gone by, plus clever tips for sharing Christmas with your kids or grandkids.
