From Our Kitchen To Yours: Holiday Recipes

Holiday recipes hold such sentimental value in our lives. They remind of us special times and the special people who made those recipes. Anyone else make the same recipes with a few meat variations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even Easter? I always make sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, corn casserole, and green bean casserole for all of those occasions: each person has a special plate they want made! And of course, we must have the canned cranberry jelly!

We thought it would be fun to share our favorite family recipes with you before the holidays are here! As I'm writing this, I'm getting so hungry typing all these yummy recipes. 

Rachel is an amazing cook and promises if she made these for me that I would no longer have an aversion towards brussels sprouts. 

In honor of my sister-in-law, Nancy, I had to share this recipe with her handwriting. As you can tell with the wrinkles and food stains, this is a beloved, well used recipe in our household.

Several fun facts:

  1. This recipe tastes just like a corn casserole that I just had from a very tasty BBQ restaurant. 
  2. If you're doing a recipe book for a bridal shower, make copies of old family recipes so future generations can have them in the original handwriting of loved ones who have passed away.
  3. If you want to win "best Christmas gift prize," you can get the loved one's recipe preserved on a wood board. See us for details! Here's an example of one we've had made for a sweet customer.

When I typed up Michelle's recipe, it made me so hungry. I can't wait to make this recipe!

Brooke's Green Bean Casserole is a must for pretty much every big holiday!

Natasha's homemade stuffing recipe is full of her personality through it! Also, do you call it "stuffing" or "dressing?" It's a debate here at the store!

Since it's so much fun sharing recipes, we'd love to have a virtual cookie swap! We'll be posting your favorite cookie recipes in our social media stories! Email me at

Until next time, happy cooking,
