My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't have many traditions, but one is on Christmas Eve, dinner always consists of hor'dourves and other finger foods. It is always fun to create a variety of tasty nibbles to enjoy while opening presents. Plus there is always a fantastic array of baked goods.
My cooking triumphs
