Well, it’s almost that time again. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years – the holidays; a time for many things including family gatherings and food. Many of us have favorites that we cook every year and many of us like to try something new. I thought that this would be a good time to share favorite foods (recipes, pictures, etc.). Maybe there’s something you want to try that you haven’t attempted before, post that and see how many offers of help and suggestions we get.
One of my favorites for the fall is banana nut bread and apple crisp pies and of course chili.
I remember making banana nut bread with my Mom many years before she passed. When I think about that and about family dinners, it makes me sad since both my parents are gone and both my mother and father-in-law as well. Granny (my mother-in-law) used to make jam cakes every year, that’s a lengthy process for made from scratch for sure.
