Holidailies Prompt: Share a favorite recipe that you like to make (or persuade someone to make for you) at this time of year.
My method of cooking for the holidays is buying a bottle of wine and going to someone else’s house so that they can cook for me. And then I offer to help with dishes.
I have been requested to make one recipe this year. I discovered an amazing recipe for Salty Oat Cookies that everyone must try. These cookies are a delicious blend of salty and sweet and are a little dangerous if you’re trying to not eat too many. They’re easy to make too, which is my favorite part.
I’m not sure I have a favorite traditional holiday recipe. I love cookies, but I don’t think there’s anything specific that we make that is only done at Christmas. We do have a giant Christmas morning breakfast where Mom practically pours mimosas down our throats. That’s something that only happens on Christmas, but I would be okay with copious amounts of alcohol for breakfast more often than once a year. Perhaps I will propose that.
All this talk of food reminds me that I have just over a week to lose a pound or five so that I have room to gain it back while staying with my parents. I think that my family believes there is no food in D.C. Or they think I can’t cook (I can, but I rarely do) and feel the need to feed me as much as possible before I go back. Sure, I could try to turn them down, but when Grandma says she made something special just because she knows I like it, I can’t say no!
