Favorite Holiday Cookie
As a kid they had to have been holiday-shaped sugar cookies which were decorated over at my grandma’s house. Here I am proudly holding a platter of them. Yup, this is 1990.
My recent favorite holiday cookie would have to be the Spice Cookies that I made this year, using crystallized ginger. These are fantastic!

Favorite Holiday Tradition
That excited Christmas Eve feeling. Nothing can beat that eager wide-eyed feeling of wonder everyone had as a kid – looking out the window trying to find Santa and Rudolph’s red nose in the distance.
Favorite Holiday Breakfast
Usually we have a big breakfast filled with everyone’s classic favorites at my parents’ house, after opening presents. I’m a big fan of pork breakfast sausage drizzled in maple syrup. Also a big steaming mug of coffee is a must!
Favorite Holiday Meal
My Aunt Barb always prepares and amazing spread of food on Christmas Eve! Last year’s plate featured beef tenderloin, asparagus, baby greens salad, Zingerman’s Bread, my Aunt Becky’s wild rice and sausage dish, and my mom’s cheesy potatoes.
Favorite Person To Shop For
I think I’ll have to go with this guy. I love picking out gifts for the huz and maybe went a little overboard this year!
Favorite Way To Open Presents
On Christmas morning, wearing PJs and slippers, with coffee nearby.
Daisy is usually snuggled up nearby.
Favorite Tree Topper
The huz and I don’t have a Christmas tree! But when I think of tree toppers, I always think of the one I grew up with at my parents’ house, which would be this silver, blinking one with multicolored lights. Bling blang!
