Christmas!  Oh Joy!  Oh Yum! 

I’m sure you have your own treasured Christmas dining traditions, however, you may enjoy trying some of the following recipes as well.

For some families, it’s all about the gifts.  In our house it was always about the feasting.  Here I offer some ideas that I hope will help you with the plans for your holiday festivities.

christmas dinner



We always have our holiday dinner in the evening at our house.  Throughout the day while gusts are gathering and the kids are exploring the wonders that Santa left for them I offer an array of munchables.  I hope you will find something here, Appetizers & Snacks that you will find appropriate for your families mid-day munching. And you may enjoy serving them with World's Best Mulled Wine.  Would I lie to you?



Having just had turkey a few weeks earlier at Thanksgiving, I never serve it at Christmas.  Goose, duck or roast beef hold pride of place on our Christmas table and what’s roast beef without

            Yorkshire Pudding

Traditional Roast Beef Dinner with Yorkshire Pudding and Port-Merlot Pan Sauce


And I try to make the side dishes a bit special and out of the ordinary.  Here are a few of my families favorites.

              Brussels Sprouts with Almonds

Glazed Carrots - Minted Peas

New Potatoes in Horseradish Cream Sauce

A True Caesar Salad - Fresh Fruit Salad



Cranberries are not the only

game in town.  Try

Spiced Apples


Mulled Wine Jelly


The English Country Kitchen




And, since Thanksgiving is the time for pies, pies and more pies, I usually serve

        Plum Pudding


 Traditional English Trifle

to end our Christmas Feast.
