About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I started a cookie baking tradition over 25 years ago. We pick a Saturday (usually the 1st Sat. in December) and spend all day baking our favorite cookies for the holidays. When my daughter was born, we included her. Over the years we have invited many friends to join our annual baking day. My daughter's friends always counted it an honor to be included. It is so much fun! We bake a dozen different kinds of cookies (many batches) and package them up to give away to our friends and families. With three generations baking, that is a lot of cookies!! Each year we try at least one new recipe. Some were keepers, others not so much. But it has always been an adventure. Now that my daughter is 23, she is also hosting her own cookie baking day with her college friends. This is a tradition I will always treasure. It has given me a lot of wonderful memories of spending time with my mother and daughter together.

Frosted Cranberries
Since I found this recipe a few years ago, I have made them every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. All my friends are hooked on them too. I found that a little bit of unflavored gelatin mixed with water works very well in place of the eggs or corn syrup. I put a small amount of sugar in a pie plate and roll a few cranberries around, then dump them onto a large waxed-paper lined cookie sheet to dry. Once they are all rolled, I use a sifter and sprinkle the tops with a little more sugar. The leftover used sugar can be sifted and used to fluff the bottom of a glass bowl/jar for displaying the cranberries. Also, try sugared mint leaves to tuck into the cranberry display.Very festive and tasty!

Fig and Arugula Salad
Delicious! Easy and awesome. I love, love, love all of the ingredients in this salad, so it was a no-brainer. The bite of the arugula paired with the sweet figs and balsamic vinegar are a perfect balance.

Red Cabbage
This reicpe made a LOT of cabbage. The recipe was fine, I guess I just discovered that our family does not care for Red Cabbage.
