Last year during the Christmas season, I undertook a task that I thought was a difficult one but by no means unattainable. I decided to post my 12 Dinners of Christmas which is a collection of dinner recipes to make during the busy hustle and bustle of the month of December. Surely I would be getting dinner on the table for my family and why not help others do the same?
I started off preparing dinner and posting my family's reviews of the meals with a bang. With the first post for Dinner #1 on December 1st, the second dinner and post on December 3rd, and the third recipe and accompanying post on December 4th, there was no stopping me. Or so I thought. The posts came fewer and farther between as the month progressed and lo and behold I did not finish my 12 Dinners of Christmas endeavour until two weeks after Christmas on January 14, 2009!.
This year, I am giving myself a Christmas gift. Even though I love experimenting in the kitchen and cooking up new recipes, I will be serving my tried and true family and blog favorites for dinner this Christmas season. I will be putting my feet up and perfecting those recipes I know my family enjoys and my readers have commented on as their favorites.
Give one, two, or all of these recipes a try. They are easy to prepare and hopefully will become family favorites in your home too.
Happy cooking and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
